The Anaheim Ducks are the only team in the NHL playoffs who have yet to taste defeat.
The Ducks swept the Winnipeg Jets in the opening round and defeated the Calgary Flames on Friday so they certainly have had their way with teams from the Canadian Prairies. Game 2 is Sunday with Frederik Andersen in the Anaheim net with Karri Ramo taking over from Jonas Hiller in the Calgary cage. May 3 - 7:08 AM

Date:

The Anaheim Ducks will begin their second round series against the Calgary Flames on Thursday.

After that the Ducks and Flames will get a breather as Game 2 isn't scheduled until Sunday. The date for Game 3 is still up in the air. If Tampa Bay beats Detroit in Game 7 on Wednesday, then Anaheim's Game 3 will be on May 5th. If Detroit eliminates Tampa Bay, then the Ducks will play Calgary on May 6th instead. After that, Game 4 will be played on May 8.

Thanks to Anaheim's four-game sweep, it's been a while since they last played.

The Ducks' last game was on April 22, nearly a full week ago. It's given them a chance to rest and let some injuries heal, but it also might kill their momentum. The first round won't end until Wednesday, so Anaheim will have to wait at least a little longer to finally kick off its next series.

Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau anticipates the Jets fans to be very passionate in Game 3 on Monday.

It will be the first playoff game in Winnipeg since 1996 so naturally it will be a big event for the city. "We've talked about it, but it's not like we don't know what’s coming," Boudreau said. "I don't think we'll ever underestimate how loud it's going to be. Most of our players are Canadian and they've been in cities when stuff like this is going on. It'll be pretty wild. It's great time to be a hockey player, going to Winnipeg for the first time in a while hosting a playoff game. They'll be into it, and hopefully that makes our players into it a little bit more." The Ducks have an opportunity to take a commanding 3-0 series lead Monday night.
Apr 20 - 9:09 AM

The Anaheim Ducks are rolling with the same crew in Game 2 that topped the Winnipeg Jets in Game 1.

It was a tightly contested game at times, so it makes sense that the Ducks aren't making any significant tweaks to that winning formula. We'll see if Anaheim can take a 2-0 series lead into Winnipeg, then. The most interesting omission is big trade deadline find James Wisniewski.

EA Sports is predicting that the Anaheim Ducks win the Stanley Cup by beating the New York Rangers in seven games

It also predicts that Ryan Getzlaf will be the Conn Smythe Trophy after scoring nine goals and 26 points in 28 games. They base those predictions off of a simulation of NHL 15. Obviously we wouldn't read much into this prediction, but it is a fun one.

With the Anaheim Ducks position almost entirely locked in, the team isn't afraid to admit that they're doing some standings watching.

"Me and my wife sit at home and watch every game," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "We've got two TVs going, flickers going on both of them. We're vested." Anaheim is likely to finish with the best record in the Western Conference, although St. Louis or Nashville still have an outside shot of taking that from the Ducks. What is guaranteed though is that the Ducks will win the Pacific Division, so they're going to play a Wild Card team. Winnipeg and Minnesota are the more likely first-round opponents for Anaheim, but the Ducks might end up playing against Calgary or Los Angeles.
Apr 8 - 10:38 AM

Anaheim has allowed an NHL-high 91 goals in the second period this season.

That's bizarre when you consider that the Ducks have only surrendered 113 goals in the first and third periods combined. There's something about the middle of games that seems to take its toll on Anaheim. "It's a major issue," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "It's been a major issue all year. Listen, if I had any single answer, I'd give it to you. … I don't know if it's in their head that we're going to get scored on in the second period or not. But I mean, there's seven games. We've got to change this or every other team will just sit there and say, 'Let's go at them in the second period. They're going to give up as many goals as they're going to give up.'"
Mar 25 - 10:36 AM

Anaheim's 2-1 loss to Vancouver on Monday was the Ducks' first one-goal defeat in regulation time all season.

The Ducks are now 26-1-7 in one-goal games. Their ability to win those clutch contests has been remarkable, although it's not new. They went 27-4-8 in one-goal games in 2013-14 and that even translated to a degree of playoff success with them going 5-2-0 in one-goal 2014 postseason contests. That wasn't enough for the Ducks to advance past the second round last year, but they're obviously hoping this time will be different.
Mar 10 - 10:16 AM

The Anaheim Ducks have been horrible in the second period this season.

The Ducks have allowed an NHL worst 80 goals in the second stanza while scoring only 65. Considering they have the best record in the NHL with 91 points, this doesn't make a lot of sense but it is what it is.
Mar 7 - 4:41 AM

The Anaheim Ducks have been mediocre lately.

The Ducks are on a 13-10-2 stretch after suffering a 3-0 loss to Ottawa on Wednesday. "It's a super test," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "We've got to get our heads out of our butts or it’s not going to be pretty." Despite the Ducks' recent struggles, it might be challenging for them to acquire a sense of urgency. They still have a 10-point lead in the Pacific Division.

The Anaheim Ducks' AHL team next season will be the San Diego Gulls.

Anaheim is moving their current affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals, to California. It's part of a larger decision for the AHL to expand westward by having five teams in the state of California.
Feb 23 - 10:25 AM

The Anaheim Ducks are reportedly hoping to move their AHL affiliates, the Norfolk Admirals, to San Diego.

The Ducks need to buy the team first. The Ducks haven't confirmed the report, but it would be more ideal for Anaheim if their AHL squad was within driving distance rather than at the other side of the country. The AHL currently doesn't have Pacific teams though as the Oklahoma City Barons are their westernmost team. Other teams would presumably need to move to the west coast as well to make San Diego a viable AHL city from a scheduling perspective, but that might happen.

The NHL won't punish the Ducks for their skate on Dec. 26.

Anaheim wasn't allowed to arrange activities on that date, but the players are free to use their time off as they see fit. Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf was the one that arranged the Ducks' informal practice without the involvement of the team's coaches or front office personnel and that's why Anaheim won't be subjected to a fine.
Jan 2 - 2:56 PM

Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf argued that the Ducks' skate on Dec. 26 didn't break any rules.

The NHL has been investigating the matter as teams aren't allowed to organize or run practices on Dec. 26, but it is alright for players to voluntarily and independently decide to skate. "I bought ice because I felt I needed to skate," said Getzlaf. "We had kids on the ice. Very informal. Just kind putted around for 20 minutes. … It was quite a few there – I don't know if we had a whole team there or not. Like I said, it was very informal. Some guys were on for five minutes, some guys were on for 20. It was just kind of a very informal skate." Getzlaf added he used to skate every Christmas as a kid, so he and others brought their children along for the experience. Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau is glad that his players skated, but he said that he wasn't involved in it.
