Here is all you need to know before both these two squads square-off again:

Last Encounter

In Palm Springs on Oct. 1, the Ducks stole the first game as they were victorious a 5-4 win against the Coyotes.

After a first period where it an offensive explosion occurred with five goals being scored and one goal by each squad in the second, Arizona was winning the game 4-3.

There weren’t many scoring chances for either team in the third frame as the Coyotes had their sights on the victory.

Anahiem would have an empty-net as they pulled their goaltender, Lukas Dostal, to get an extra attacker on the ice.

And, it worked.

Then, with less than a minute left in the game, the game got out of Arizona’s grasp.

Ducks winger Troy Terry tied the game at 4-4 after firing a slap-shot past ‘Yotes goaltender Karel Vejmelka with 34.8 seconds left.

After the goal, things for Arizona went from bad to even worse.

With 15.8 seconds left on the clock, Anaheim defenseman Robert Hagg shot the puck from long-range and found its way past three players before ending up in the back of the goal and the Ducks pulled of a comeback with the 5-4 win.


Once both lineups drop, stay tuned as this will be updated. They are yet to be released at the time of reporting.

Since then, the Ducks headed to Los Angeles where they lost 4-1 to the Kings at Center on Oct. 3.
