Blackhawks face surging Ducks for Selänne's last game at UC

The Chicago Blackhawks (30-8-11, 1st in Central) haven't always "played sixty" this season. Much of the time, their talent and offensive skills have carried them through to wins - or at least points.

However, the Blackhawks are just 4-1-5 in their past 10 games, and they are coming off Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss versus the Avalanche. Friday, they will be facing the high-flying Ducks (36-8-5, 1st in league), who are on a 7-game winning streak -- and who absolutely obliterated the Canucks 9-1 on Anaheim ice Wednesday night.

There's no kind words to describe what happened in Anaheim last night. The only players not to record points were Cam Fowler...

Gameday vs Anaheim: Flyers, Ducks Battle in Philly Tonight

The Flyers look to win their third straight game as they host one of the best teams in the Western Conference.

Top 10 games to look forward to on the Blackhawks' calendar

The Chicago Blackhawks open their championship-defending season on Tuesday, October 1st versus the Washington Capitals. Needless to say, that game will be the number one ticket on Blackhawks' fans lists when regular season single-game tickets go on sale Monday morning, as Chicago has earned the right to raise a handful of banners that night - tops among them, the 2013 Stanley Cup banner.

Three years ago, Capitals forward Troy Brouwer stood on the Blackhawks side of the ice, part of the 2010 Cup-winning team. Now he will return on the visitors' side, as part of a team that is still chasing their first Cup since being founded in 1974. The team will be hungry to mak...

Blackhawks Drown in the Duck Pond

 

CHI @ ANA Game Recap1/20/13 Blackhawks Drown in the Duck Pond  In a game that lived up to its hype the league leading Chicago Blackhawks fell 4-2 to the second place Anaheim Ducks who now trail the Windy City team by only 3 points in the Western Conference.  The Ducks drew first blood with a quick goal by center Peter Holland less than 2 minutes into play.  The Hawks were almost immediately sent to the penalty kill against the most successful power play unit in the league, but a fantastic short-handed goal via Jonathan Toews brought those first five minutes of heart attack to an end all tied up 1-1.  After a very forgettable Blackhawk...

Stanley Cup hangovers have proved to be problems of varying degrees for teams coming off of a championship. Blame the perpetual photo shoot sessions and unending praise from complete strangers and an overwhelming feeling of accomplishment for a sluggish start to a new year. It’s easy to do those things. But when looking at this 48-game schedule, it’s also easy to point towards the especially extended offseason, coupled with the fact that the Kings’ roster is basically identical to the one which won the Stanley Cup last June and wonder why the team isn’t winni...

Red Wings look to extend the franchise record against Anaheim

The number 19 means a lot in the Motor City.

It was the jersey worn by Steve Yzerman during his career in the NHL. The "Captain" as he is sometimes referred to, helped bring 3 Stanley Cups to Detroit in the span of six years. Take a trip to Joe Louis Arena and one will see that number hanging above the ice.

Tonight, that number is something magical once again. As they are currently sitting on top the Central division, the Western conference and even more important, the NHL, the Detroit Red Wings are currently making history as they hold an 18 game win streak on home ice, a franchise record. The NHL record is 20, held by the Boston Bruins.

To say that the Wings ...

One, Two, Three, Triple Deke - Ducks 4 Isles 2

The Ducks top line of Corey Perry, Ryan Getzlaf, and Bobby Ryan had a coming out party Friday Night.

Unfortunately, it was at the New York Islanders expense.

Bobby Ryan had two goals and Ryan Getzlaf scored the go-ahead goal, his first in over a month, as the Anaheim Ducks defeated the Islanders 4-2.

Ryan started the scoring at 14:18 of the second period only seconds after their first power play of the game ended. Matt Martin answered back under two minutes later tapping home a rebound to tie the game at one. It was his fifth goal of the season, tying his career high.

Game Day: Phoenix Coyotes @ Anaheim Ducks

After having enjoyed more overall success in earlier weeks, the Phoenix Coyotes are struggling to find consistency and have split their last ten games, which includes a monster stretch of four games in six nights. They face Anaheim for already the third time this season, having had the upper hand in both meetings so far with wins of 5-4 and 4-2, exactly one month apart.

The Ducks, like the Coyotes, have dropped their last two games.  Their division is in the midst of an overhaul, with only Phoenix's Dave Tippett and San Jose's Todd McLellan having coached full seasons with their respective clubs last year. Bruce Boudreau has a .666 winning-percentage all time and i...

Flyers Start West Coast Trip In Anaheim

The Philadelphia Flyers head out on a West coast trip this weekend. Their first stop is in Anaheim to face the flightless Ducks at 10:00 pm EST. It will be the debut of coach Bruce Boudreau with his new team and the question is, just how much will the coaching change effect this game tonight ?

Game Day: Phoenix Coyotes @ Anaheim Ducks

Hobey Baker Award winner Andy Miele makes his NHL debut for the Phoenix Coyotes tonight as they face off against the 4-2-0 Anaheim Ducks at the Honda Centre.  Puck drop is at 5 p.m. PST.

The 2-3-1 Coyotes, despite putting in a better effort against the Los Angeles Kings, were blanked as Jonathan Quick recorded his 100th career win with a shutout, 2-0.  The Ducks are also coming off a loss, their first in five games, as they got off to a slow start against Dallas and were never able to recover in a game that head coach Randy Carlyle referred to as "turnover fest.  It looked like we were working in a restaurant flipping flapjacks."
