No. 9:  Anaheim Ducks

Previous:  17th

Season Record:  15-9-5

After suffering an 8-3 loss to the Calgary Flames last Sunday, the Ducks have won their last three games, all at home.  It’s been a team effort, and head coach Randy Carlyle attributes the wins towards his team’s ability to play fast and execute fast.  Ryan Kesler and Corey Perry each have 25 points apiece to lead the team.

The Ducks are well served to take advantage of home ice, as they now embark on a six-game road trip.
