Game Preview

The Opposition: Anaheim Calling


Los Angeles Kings

If you were expecting Willie Desjardins to come in and radically shake up the lines, well. That’s a no.

Anaheim Ducks

Rakell - Henrique - Aberg
Cogliano - Kesler - Silfverberg
Sherwood - Lundestrom - Eaves
Gibbons - Carrick - Rowney

Fowler - Welinski
Lindholm - Larsson
Pettersson - Montour


With Ryan Getzlaf and Ryan Kesler both being game-time decisions, it’s possible this lineup looks different when the teams hit the ice. Chase De Leo has been called up from the San Diego Gulls; the La Mirada, California-born player could make his debut for the Ducks tonight.
