A pair of teams that lost on Friday look for a chance to get back on track on Saturday in Stockholm, Sweden. The Anaheim Ducks fell to the Buffalo Sabres in Helsinki, Finland on Friday, while the New York Rangers were in Stockholm, losing to the Los Angeles Kings in overtime. The Ducks face the task of trying to beat Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist in his home country.
Robby at Anaheim Calling thinks the power play could be key in Saturday's game:
At this point, PP time is probably the Ducks' own worst enemy, as they don't seem to have the chemistry necessary to exploit the man advantage. Against the Rangers, the Ducks should send traffic to Lundqvist's crease (which will be made all the easier byabsence) and get a garbage goal or two. In fact, of the two PP units, the second unit looked more dangerous yesterday as it was more focused on putting pucks on net and not making the extra pass.
Here are the details of Saturday's contest:
