Anaheim Ducks at Washington Capitals

The Ducks come into this one fresh off winning their last three games as they finish their five game road trip here in Washington this afternoon. Normally we would look at the top line of Ryan Getzlaf, Rickard Rakell and Jakob Silfverberg as the line to target here and we still might. Getzlaf has grabbed seven of his team leading 19 points over the last eight games but it has been Adam Henrique and Nick Ritchie from the team’s second line that has been doing some damage. Ondrej Kase joins them on the second line as they have racked up a combined nine goals and 11 assists over the last eight games. Rakell’s 14 assists is tops on the team while defenseman Brandon Montour has notched 12 points to lead the blue liners in that category so far this season. Although Anaheim has won five of their last six games they have scored only 16 goals in those six games which would be a good indicator to maybe take a quick look at the Ducks goaltender this afternoon.
