Tonight concludes the Ducks 5-game homestand, they are off on a long road trip starting tomorrow in San Jose and will continue through the first half of the first week in December before returning back to Honda Center.
Tonight the Anaheim Ducks take on the Florida once again, the last time these two teams met was in Florida where the Panthers creamed the Ducks 8-3. With 2 recently inducted players of the Hall of Fame, before the game the Ducks will honor Teemu Selanne and Paul Kariya for being players inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. Two Ducks living legends who were magic on the ice when they were on the ice together. I really hope that magic is something that they bring into the building and spread inspiration in the Ducks to take this one and just burry the Panthers in the ground.
This is the final regulation game where the Ducks and Panthers will meet. The Ducks started off on a bad start with a loss in Florida 8-3, I hope that they turn the tables in this game and I hope the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim legends bring some of their magic to help the Ducks light the lamp with defeating the Panthers on the Hall of Fame Night with Ducks living legends Teemu Selanne and Paul Kariya in the building and it will be the first time these two will step into Honda Center since March 4, 2001.
John Gibson is expected to make his third consecutive start in tonight’s game. Hampus Lindholm is going to be back in the lineup after missing the game against Boston due to an undisclosed injury. Kevin Roy is going to be in the lineup for his fourth game in the NHL with Ondrej Kase still out with injury but Kase hopefully will be back playing soon. Cam Fowler won’t play tonight but he is expected to be back in the lineup sometime this week- duing the Ducks road trip that starts Monday in San Jose and ends December 5th in a game against Vegas.
