The Anaheim Ducks have hit a slump, at 1-4-1 in their last six games, but look to rebound Tuesday night continuing their road trip against the Washington Capitals at Verizon Center. The Ducks have scored a shade under two goals per game this season, just over half the offensive production of Tuesday's opponent. But never feat, "Movember" is here!
Several members of the Ducks are taking part in Movember, the annual tradition in which players shave at the beginning of the month, then grow mustaches all for a good cause. Goalie Jonas Hiller even has his own Movember mask. The Ducks were 8-4-2 during November 2010, and Anaheim Calling is excited:
Do not be deterred Ducks fans. If the team is trying to jump start their offense, this just might be the team to do it a against. Who doesn't remember the 7-6 battle at Honda Center last season? The Capitals have a penalty kill that is clicking only 77% of the time (ours is 85%). Another perfect moment for our power play to get their groove back.
The Ducks and Capitals split their two meetings last season.
Tuesday's 4:30 p.m. PDT game will be televised by Versus. For more Ducks news and information, be sure to read Anaheim Calling.
