Last night, the Ducks continued their shooting struggles in the first period before remembering that they were playing against Martin Jones and scoring three goals in the second period. They ultimately walked away with a point — a shootout isn’t exactly ideal for this Ducks team, but also Jones has been strangely good in these cases so far this season.
Tonight is a battle of back up goaltenders, seeing Ryan Miller slot in against a team he’s historically done well against. Devan Dubnyk will start for the Sharks. Ryan Getzlaf, who was announced as being day-to-day last minute yesterday, is expected to be a scratch tonight as well.
