Power Rankings
In one of the most impressive turnarounds we've seen in the NHL, the Ducks went from last in the league at Christmas to winning a fourth consecutive Pacific Division title. If they can stay healthy in the postseason, they're going to be tough to beat.
Who would have thought the Ducks would enter the last week of the season with a chance to lock up their fourth consecutive division title back in December? From last place in the whole league to this? They're entering the playoffs on the right note.
Anaheim has been able to chip away at the Kings lead again with five wins over their last eight games. Frederik Andersen and John Gibson have done well while splitting the games in net.
Thanks to some quality goaltending more recently from both John Gibson and Frederik Andersen, the Ducks are finishing the season on a high note. They have an outside shot at catching the Kings for first in the division, but either way, they're looking mighty scary for the postseason.
The Ducks followed up their incredible winning streak with three straight losses, knocking them back down to second in the Pacific Division. They have one more game against the Kings and a relatively soft schedule to close out the season and keep gunning for a fourth straight Pacific Division title.
Since Dec. 27, Anaheim has gone 25-4-3 and just had a franchise-record 11-game winning streak snapped. They've erased any memory of the rough start to their season as they aim for a fourth straight Pacific Division title. They're back in the Cup contender category.
Anaheim is rolling right now. They've won eight straight and nine of their last 10 to pull within two points of the Pacific-leading Kings. GM Bob Murray didn't do too much at the deadline, but got some nice forward depth in Jamie McGinn and Brandon Pirri.
Over the last month, the Ducks have been incredible. They're now two points behind the first-place Kings after winning 14 of their last 17 games. Not only have they been incredibly tough to score on, their offense has really come alive with 11 games of four or more goals scored in their last 17.
What an absolutely incredible turnaround for the Ducks this year. They've come a long way back and keep moving forward thanks to an 11-2-1 run since mid-January. They're now in second in the Pacific and five points behind first-place Los Angeles.
Their six-game winning streak may have been snapped by the Penguins, but the Ducks have seemingly turned the corner. They're one point behind the Sharks for second in the Pacific and look like the team most thought they could be heading into the season.
Preseason Power Rankings
Widely considered one of the best teams coming into the season, a 0-1-1 start doesn't look great, but it's hardly reason to allow the Ducks to drop out of the top 10. We'll see how they respond next week.
