Anaheim Ducks Look to Start Deep Cup Run Tonight in Quarter Final Round
Anaheim – The Anaheim Ducks look to ensure their best regular season since the Cup is not a waste. The Ducks have one of those good problems in that they have two number one netminders. The younger players will be looking to their four remaining teammates from that team to help them along.
Despite their seeding, the Detroit Red Wings are a dangerous team. They scraped together enough points to clinch their 22nd straight appearance in the run for the Stanley Cup.
Many analysts are predicting predicting the Red Wings to win the series, however the Ducks have the edge in almost every category. I say the Ducks will win in five if not six.
