Anaheim vs New York: Ducks Face Islanders in NHL Action
Anaheim Ducks: Battling for top perch in the West
We have discussed how impressed we are with the 2014-15 NHL playoff races in the past and that feeling continues to grow. The Western Conference regular season championship battle has Anaheim (101) Nashville (100) and St. Louis (99) separated by just three points. Being as the Blues (2) and Predators (1) both have games in hand, the Ducks need to string together wins over their final six games. Anaheim has been streaky recently as they have posted an 8-5 record in March.
New York Islanders: Have hit the skids as playoff pressure mounts
Tied with the Rangers for top spot in the Metropolitan Division back on February 27, a 3-5-3 recent run has the Islanders eight points back of the Blueshirts who have two games in hand. John Tavares & Crew have turned their focus to retaining second place in the Met as they attempt to fend of Pittsburgh who are just two points back and own a game in hand. Whether it’s a young squad experiencing playoff jitters, or just running out of gas, the Islanders have not looked like contenders during a 1-5-1 slide.

The Ducks had Friday off after they beat the Bruins 3-2 in overtime in Boston on Thursday. The win was proceeded by embarrassing loses to Columbus (5-3) and the Rangers (7-2).
