The Ducks’ return from the break resulted in a heartbreaker. Anaheim suffered a 4-3 setback at home on Friday against the Seattle Kraken – the team’s second straight loss after falling to Detroit in OT prior to the All-Star break. The losses were a huge blow to the Ducks, especially with the race continuing to be tight among the top to middle teams in the Pacific. As of the moment, Anaheim is on a three-way tie in points with Edmonton and Los Angeles, although the Ducks have the worst winning percentage having already played 49 games. It signals a call for the team to ramp up its efforts in order to climb up the ladder. Facing the hottest team in the league – while being on the road – is a tall order for them. But first things first. They need to show up, then execute. From then, they could hope for better results.
Players to watch: T. Terry C (G 25, A 17, PTS 42), T. Zegras C (G 12, A 21, PTS 33), R. Getzlaf C (G 3, A 24, PTS 27).
The Flames have not lost a beat in February. Calgary is undefeated during the month and is currently riding a seven-game winning streak that has placed them at the top of the Pacific Division standings. The team has breached the 60-point barrier after trouncing the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday, 5-2. The Flames will be playing their second game of a back-to-back and their fifth straight game at home against the Ducks. On paper, every advantage is on their side, but the squad remains cautious of the possibility of having their streak snapped by a team that is looking to have a better grip of a playoff spot in the division.
Players to watch: J. Gaudreau LW (G 19, A 39, PTS 58), M. Tkachuk LW (G 21, A 29, PTS 50), E. Lindholm C (G 18, A 22, PTS 40).
