This is the biggest game of the season for multiple reasons. And no I am not being hyperbolic. I understand that every game, especially in a shortened season are important but this game is the single biggest game of the season for this team. I'll tell you why since you asked.

1. The kings are tied for least games played in the league with 16. The ducks have also played only 16.

2. Lets take a look at the standings in chorus with GIH (games in hand)

WC

4. Blues: 22 pts. 2 GIH
5. Wings: 21 pts. 3 GIH
6. Preds: 21 pts. 3 GIH*
7. Gups: 19 pts. 1 GIH
8. Stars: 19 pts. 2 GIH*
9. Yotes: 19 pts. 2 GHI
10. Kings: 18 pts. *

* play today

(really speaks volumes)

3. The measuring stick game. The ducks are playing great hockey this year and Fasth is playing out of his mind. This is the epitome of measuring stick game to say the least. You win this game and it could be seen as the game that changed the path of both teams.

Last 10: ANA 9-1-0*. LA 6-4-0
*ducks have won 6 straight and come from behind in each game.

4. IMHO this is the beginning of the rivalry the way it should be.
