Monday’s loss to the Edmonton Oilers may be the lowest point of the Anaheim Ducks’ season. The 4-0 defeat meant the Ducks dropped their eighth straight game, tying a franchise record. Specifically, the Oilers’ fourth goal might have been rock bottom. Milan Lucic dominated Brandon Montour to the point where he did exactly what the Ducks are doing now (falling on their backside), eventually leading to Leon Draisaitl scoring the goal. https://youtu.be/wgZG9AqgUGc?t=130 All is not lost though. The Ducks are firmly in the playoff hunt, and all things considered, still have a strong chance of making the playoffs when you look at the most important factors like injuries, experience and opponents.
