Anaheim Ducks Start Back-to-Back Series with Edmonton Oilers

Getzlaf looks to keep hot streak going

Edmonton, AB - The Anaheim Ducks are looking to rebound from a 3-1 loss to the Calgary Flames on Friday night and stop a four game skid to get some momentum before the the Stanley Cup Playoffs begin. The momentum will hopefully start with a win against the Edmonton Oilers

The Ducks can clinch their third Pacific Division title with a win and losses by the Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks today. In order to do so, Ryan Getzlaf will need to stay hot. The captain has five points in the last five game (2 goals, 3 assists).

The Oilers are looking to get in the playoffs. They currently are sitting in 12th, 8 points behind the Columbus Blue Jackets for the eighth and final spot. The only way they can get in is to win out and have the four teams ahead of them lose out.
