New York Rangers v Anaheim Ducks

On this episode, host Felix Sicard is joined by Anaheim Calling staff writer Jake Rudolph for an in-depth overview of the Anaheim Ducks season to date.

They compare early season data, where Derek Grant and Chris Wagner were Anaheim’s top two centers, to more recent data now that Ryan Getzlaf and Ryan Kesler are back in the lineup.

After analyzing the broader stats, Felix and Jake look at every defense pairing and forward line, highlighting who’s stood out for Anaheim this season. They especially sing the praises of the Hampus Lindholm/Josh Manson pairing, as well as the Rickard Rakell/Ryan Getzlaf/Ondrej Kase line.

Following the line/pairing breakdowns, they get into how Anaheim’s power play has performed today, while also analyzing the strong play of both John Gibson and Ryan Miller.

To round out the show, they give their thoughts and projections regarding this Anaheim team moving forward, specifically looking at what it will need to make the playoffs.
