Ducks Vs. Blue Jackets



Vs.



Tonight at 7pm at Honda Center

TV: Prime
Radio: AM 830

Links: ATDHE.NET

Preview from Ducks site:

BLUE JACKETS (25-30-11) at DUCKS (30-27-8)

Last 10: Columbus 3-4-3; Anaheim 5-4-1

Season series: Fourth and final meeting of the regular season. Columbus captured the first two matchups, one in a shootout, before Anaheim prevailed 3-1 in the most recent meeting on Dec. 12. Rick Nash and Jakub Voracek have two goals apiece for the Blue Jackets, while Bobby Ryan and Joffrey Lupul have each scored twice for the Ducks.

Big story: Time has essentially run out on the Blue Jackets, and it's ticking down rapidly on the Ducks as well. They can't afford to let games slip away like they did Sunday night, when a 3-1 lead in the final minutes of regulation against the visiting Canadiens evaporated into a devastating 4-3 shootout defeat. Anaheim begins play Tuesday six points out of a playoff berth but 12th in the Western Conference.

Team Scope:

Blue Jackets: It all went south in a hurry Monday night as Columbus faced Los Angeles in the middle game of three straight on the road. The Kings put four on the board in the first period, chasing goalie Steve Mason, and the Blue Jackets never challenged in a 6-0 loss, their fifth in a row.

"That was embarrassing," center R.J. Umberger said. "We didn't play smart. We are our own worst enemies out there."


Ducks: A do-or-die seven-game homestand got off to a flying start when Anaheim opened up a three-goal, first-period lead against Montreal on the strength of goals by Corey Perry, newcomer Lubomir Visnovsky and captain Scott Niedermayer. Even after the Canadiens got on the board in the second, courtesy of a Tomas Plekanec goal, the Ducks' lead seemed secure. But Gionta cut the deficit to one with 1:50 left, Andrei Markov forced overtime with 10.7 seconds remaining and the goalie pulled and Plekanec struck again in the fourth round of the shootout to stun the Honda Center faithful.

"With the way we played early in the game, we should have been able to get these two points tonight," Niedermayer said. "They just hung around and waited for a couple of mistakes. They took advantage of it."

Who's hot: Niedermayer has three goals in Anaheim's last four games and eight points in the last seven games. Perry has two goals and two assists in his last four games.

Injury report: Nash (lower body) left Monday's game, adding injury to insult for the Jackets, who were already without forward Kristian Huselius (hand) and defenseman Rostislav Klesla (groin). Lupul had back surgery in December and remains out of the Ducks' lineup.

Stat pack: Voracek had a goal and seven assists during a six-game points streak that ended when Columbus was blanked Monday. Jonas Hiller is 3-1-1 with a 2.37 goals-against average and .937 save percentage in Anaheim's last five home games.

Probable Line-Up:

Ryan-Getzlaf-Perry
Blake-Koivu-Selanne
Beleskey-Marchant-Bodie
Brown-Chipchura-Sexton

Niedermayer-Wizniewski
Visnovsky-Ward
Eminger-Brookbank

Hiller
McElhinney

Festerling would be better than Eminger but I haven't seen anything regarding if he will play or not.

Interesting article from OC Register:

We need this game tonight. Period. They have no more margin for error.

I would love to see if RPG can pull it together tonight. They have been underperforming this year as far as I'm concerned.

I read this board every night but rarely post and I dont recall the last time our GDT had 2 replies only 30 minutes before gametime.

Get excited boys. Tonight is a win, a big one. Murray chose to buy. You better bet he is riding RC for some wins here to save him from looking like a moron. It starts TONIGHT. It HAS TO. The boys are going to be jacked. Your vets, Nieds Koivu, Teemu ect. are gunna be leading the charge tonight and look for some healthy lookin legs from the whole team, Perry and Getz included.

The BJ's are in rough shape. They got WHOOPED last night in LA. They lost Rick Nash who is doubtful for tonight's game. They just called up some more AHL'ers to fill in tonight. They are going with the backup, Garon, after Mason looked like poop in last nights 1st period. Even through our struggles the last 3 games, Hiller has looked sharp. We have the definite edge in net.

I put big cash on the Ducks tonight. You think we are feeling pessimistic about our team.... go browse the BJ's GDT thread.

Snap outta this boys and get ready for a big one tonight

DUCKS 5 - BJ's 1

Selanne (2)
Niedermayer
Ryan
Visnovsky

Voracek

Everytime someone predicts a Ducks win in the GDT recently they've lost. You just sealed their fate.

Let's not get an early lead tonight.
Comeback only.

Nash, Huselius out - Teemu questionable at warmup time (flu like symptoms).
Teemu traded to Calgary (e5)

Go Ducks!

That was some garbage. Oh well, that early lead thing hasn't been working out lately.

Can't believe Sexton didn't score.

This stream on justin.tv makes Ahlers sound like he may be drunk. The slur after all of the words is irritating yet hilarious
