Ducks Vs. Sharks: Anaheim Looking For Playoff Boost

The Anaheim Ducks look to improve their playoff chances with a win tonight, hosting the Pacific Division champ San Jose Sharks at Honda Center. Anaheim is currently tied with the Chicago Blackhawks for seventh place in the NHL Western Conference. The Blackhawks are currently losing to the Blues in the second period, so perhaps the Ducks can capitalize tonight. Here are the relevant details of tonight's game:

  • Combatants: Ducks (93 pts, 44-30-5); Sharks (103 pts, 47-23-9)
  • Location: Honda Center, Anaheim
  • Time: 7:00 p.m. PDT
  • TV: KDOC
  • Previous Matchups: the Ducks are 2-3 against San Jose this season, including 1-1 at Honda Center

There is a chance that tonight's matchup could be a first-round playoff preview, as the Sharks currently occupy the No. 2 seed in the West. Anaheim is 24-13-2 at home this season. Ducks' forward Corey Perry leads the NHL with 47 goals scored.
