Ducks @ Golden Knights GAMETHREAD: Get the Streak Going

New, comments

Ducks going for their 6th win and the top spot in the West against Vegas.

NHL: Anaheim Ducks at Vegas Golden Knights Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

Numbers for Nerds

The Vegas Golden Knights are last in the league when it comes to Power Play percentage at 5%. This is part of the reason they sit in 28th place at 2.0 goals per 60. Couple this with the fact that the Ducks are 2nd in the league with 2.0 goals against per 60, and the Ducks stand a good chance of getting the W tonight.

The Ducks are also undefeated when their Captain is on the ice. With his return, the Ducks will be able to spread their offensive more evenly across their lineup.
