The Ducks extended their four game losing streak to five games tonight in Anaheim as they hosted the Edmonton Oilers (last place in the western conference). The Ducks stay in 9th place in the west, but are tied (with the Chicago Blackhawks) for having played more games (23) than any other team in the NHL. If their standings are potentially inflated now, since many teams in the conference have played four fewer games, the Ducks are in pretty bad shape.
The next time the Ducks play is this Friday, the day after Thanksgiving in the US. They host the Blackhawks and I have to wonder if there won’t be some new faces in the Honda Center when they do. Something’s gotta give if the team isn’t doing well, right? Even in the Ducks’ six game winning streak they didn’t play well consistently. It should be an interesting week in Anaheim.
