The Anaheim Ducks continue their homestand Friday night as they host the Columbus Blue Jackets at Honda Center in Anaheim. The Ducks were 9-1-1 in an 11-game stretch before getting hammed 6-2 at home Wednesday night by the Dallas Stars.
"When you raise your own bar by the standards ... that I thought our team had set, we weren't anywhere near as good as we should be," coach Bruce Boudreau told the Associated Press. "We had a lot of shots, but we didn't have a lot of second shots. We lost battles, and when you lose 1-on-1 battles, you lose games."
The Blue Jackets enter Friday night with the worst record in the NHL. Columbus has lost six straight games and seven straight road contests. They are 4-15-2 in their last 21 games. The Ducks and Blue Jackets have split two games this season.
Friday night's 7 p.m. PST game will be televised by Prime Ticket. For more news and information on Ducks hockey, be sure to read Anaheim Calling.
