Ducks Looking to Move Series Back Home
The Anaheim Ducks would love to host another Game 7. The Ducks swept the Calgary Flames but then went 7 against Edmonton. The Ducks snapped their nasty Game 7 streak in the win over the Oilers and would love to make it a two-game winning streak. Anaheim was +23 in the regular season and won 8 out of their last 10 games.
