The Anaheim Ducks open things up at home tonight against the currently, undefeated, Minnesota Wild. After losing both games in their two-game series against the Vegas Golden Knights, it is easy to walk into tonight’s game feeling defeated. However, despite the losses, the Ducks showed progress against VGK compared to seasons prior.

This could be the confidence boost they need going in with the home-ice advantage. Anaheim desperately needs to figure out how to put the puck in the back of the net, and they need someone other than Max Comtois to do it. Once it happens, and the pressure is off, goals will likely start flowing.

With the addition of Sonny Milano to tonight’s lineup, slotting in on the second line, despite his defensive woes, the Ducks are given an offensive boost in their top 6. While Milano’s sample size with Anaheim last season was small, he has a lot to prove going into 2020-21. His 5 points (2g, 3a) in 9 games last year is a reason to be optimistic.

The Ducks really need to focus on keeping Kirill Kaprizov at bay, as the kid has been absolutely lethal for the Minnesota Wild in their first two games. If they can keep him away from John Gibson as much as possible, control a majority of the game, improve upon their special teams, and find a way to finally score goals, they might be able to finally break their losing streak and light the lamp.
