As a gameday exclusive for the Duck's game against the San Jose Sharks, I have radio broadcaster and former NHL Stanley Cup champion, Brent Severyn, with some Keys to the Game.
Mr Severyn, what will it the take for the Ducks to win?
"Continue to frustrate the Sharks with good defensive posture. The Sharks have averaged 1.9 goals a game since February 23rd. The powerplay for the Sharks have struggled as well, going 0-8 against the Kings last game. One of the reason for the Shark's inadequacies in scoring has been the play of Joe Thorton, who failed to record a point for the second straight game. It will be interesting to see who matches up with Thorton now that Sammy Pahlsson has been moved to Chicago."
Also worthy of mention is Travis Moen's first return to the Honda Center as a Shark, after the March 4th trade. He's been playing on the third line with Marcel Goc and Johnathan Cheechoo. He has also seen time at the first line with Joe Thorton.
