You have to hand it to the Anaheim Ducks who, despite being bottom dwellers in the Western Conference, have strung together an impressive 7-2-1 record in their last 10 games.
The Ducks have been a unique story this year…. but then again a lot of teams have. Head Coach Randy Carlyle was fired, to be replaced by Bruce Boudreau who was fired by the Washington Capitals. One might of thought the move was a bad choice, but then again, we’re not running an NHL organization.
The Ducks are on a roll, going 9-2-1 in the month of January. That is 19 points of a possible 24. February is off to a slower start, 1-1-1, but with 12 more games this month and a possible 24 points to be won, the Anaheim Ducks are capable of closing their 10 point out of playoff contention.
