Back in October, the Anaheim Ducks started off poorly, almost dead last in the NHL. By Christmas, things started looking up, and they literally crawled out of the gutter to the top. On the last day of the regular NHL season, the LA Kings were ahead of the Ducks by 1 point. They could have easily won the Pacific Division if they had beaten the Winnipeg Jets, but they didn’t.
When the Ducks played the Washington Capitals and beat them 2-0, they were able to leap over the Kings, clinching the Pacific Division title by 1 point.
The regular NHL season is now over, and the playoffs will begin on April 13, 2016.
The Anaheim Ducks will begin their series against the Nashville Predators on Friday, April 15, at Honda Center. If the Ducks win the best of 7 series, they will play the winner from the LA Kings- San Jose Sharks series. Here’s a link to all the NHL playoff teams.
Let the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs begin!! Who do you think will win the Cup?
