Numbers for Nerds:

The Ducks’ improvement in shot attempts against, and shot attempts for, from the start of the season to tonight’s game, is an improvement of the equivalent of ~50 goals over 82 games, given league average netminding. In the 2017-2018 season that would have been a big enough change to take the 31st placed team, to the 10th overall position. That is to say, the Ducks were historically bad to start the season, and their turnaround has been dramatic to say the least.
