The Ducks’ star remains optimistic that despite his team’s 13-22-6 record in the first half, Anaheim can still make the playoffs. If it takes 97 points again like it did last year in the Western Conference, it means the Ducks will need 65 points in their final 41 games to catch up.
BY THE NUMBERS
Goals in the second 21 games of the season by the Los Angeles Kings’ Anze Kopitar, after scoring 10 in the first 21. Though 6-1-3 in the first 10 games under Darryl Sutter, the Kings continue to sputter along at the bottom of the league offensively.
Tyler Seguin’s plus-minus rating as of Thursday, tops in the NHL, putting him in line to be the first under-21 player to win the plus-minus crown since Wayne Gretzky.
