Anaheim continues rebuilding and rejuvenating the lineup. Many of the club's past leaders have either finished their careers or have been traded away. Now the Ducks are led by promising and ambitious youngsters who still need to gain experience. The Californians sometimes get their momentum going and perform miracles on the ice, but they're still not competitive. Dallas Eakins's men have failed seven of their last nine meetings, defeating Calgary and Columbus 3-1 and 7-4. Anaheim is only in 14th place in the Western Conference standings.
Historically, St. Louis has been one of the most consistent teams in the NHL. They rarely miss the playoffs but rarely make it to the cup tournaments. But now we are witnessing a unique case of them not being destined to play in the Stanley Cup. They blew the season with mediocre results. At the end of the transfer window, they started to give away their leaders, among whom Vladimir Tarasenko and Ryan O'Reilly stand out. Surprisingly, things picked up for the club after winning three times in their last four games, moving up to 11th place in the Western Conference.
