Numbers for Nerds

The Vancouver Canucks have the 9th best power play in the league at 21.10%. However, they will be without their leading goal-scorer, points leader, and leader in power play goals in Brock Boeser due to injury. They will also be missing Erik Gudbranson, Loui Eriksson, Sven Baertschi, and Chris Tanev all due to injuries as well. The Ducks will be playing a defeated Canucks team that can't score and is missing a ton of key players. What's the worst that can happen?
