Tonight, the Anaheim Ducks head to Washington, D.C., after pulling off an overtime win against the defending Eastern Conference Champion Florida Panthers the other night. The Ducks have not had a back-to-back win in over a month, and they seek one out tonight against the Capitals, a team that beat them in their first meeting. It’s going to be interesting to see how this one ends with the Ducks recently finding an offensive rhythm and the Capitals now ranking in the bottom four for goals per game.
