Of course they’ll beat both Pens and Jets...
Everything that could go wrong has.
The bounces just haven’t gone their way in any way shape or form. Can’t catch a break.
Just need to keep pushing forward. With all the losses still right there for playoff spot.

Fire Carlisle and promote Eakins from SD. Ducks can’t score if they don’t possess the puck and are outshot 2 - 1 on a nightly basis. Randy has proved this year that he canNOT adapt to the new NHL. Time for him to retire.

Yes on Carlyle, no on Eakins,at least not this season. The Gulls are playing great hockey right now, Murray shouldn't do anything to screw that up. Let the kids play and build confidence and get them ready for next year.
As for next year, I'm praying that Kesler pulls a Hossa and takes his money and walks off into the sunset. They've got to try to trade Cogliano, too. Neither of them can effectively play anymore, they're not even that good defensively, either. Kesler can still win face offs but $6.75 million is a lot to pay a face off specialist.
The other thing that's weird about what's going on is no one seems pissed about losing. Maybe it's because unbelievably they are still in the playoff hunt , but everyone just calmly explains what mistakes they made that caused them to lose yet again. I'd love to see something like what happened between McKinnon and Bednar the other night in Colorado. Nathan McKinnon is pissed about losing!

Nice try, the Pens were the last team that the Ducks beat in regulation. How pissed are they going to be tonight? If Gibson starts, it might not get too ugly. If they decide to start Chad Johnson... I'm putting the over/under on Pittsburgh goals at 10.

Kings fans used to like to talk about attendance during their competitive half-decade. I've been to the last three Ducks home games, probably more. Honda Center has been sold out for all three games, even though the Ducks are mired in their worst losing streak of all time, and they played some pretty poor teams.

The Kings, on the other hand, failed to sell out two of their past three home games, including Tampa Bay. Their long-time fans are actually pretty awesome. But the bandwagon has gotten a little light up the 5.

BTW: If you want a ticket to see the Kings visit Honda Center, they're going for a little over half of what they were a couple of years ago. I guess traffic is keeping their fans away.

Agreed about trading Cogs, he's no longer what he once was. I think we should trade Silf too, and please fire RC
