These Ducks are mighty
The best team in the NHL the last 40 or so games? The Ducks.
In November, the Ducks played and lost a game to the Avalanche in Colorado, a defeat that started an eight-game skid that left them well off the playoff pace. Since then, mostly under cover of darkness, they have fashioned a 28-11-8 run that lifted them up to sixth place in the Western Conference.Is it just me, or does that sound eerily like the end-of-season run the Tampa Bay Lightning had in 2004? I wouldn't be surprised in the least if new Anaheim GM Brian Burke leads this club far further into the postseason than he ever did the Canucks.
