Anaheim is averaging 3.3 goals per game, the most in the West. The Ducks also sport a plus-24 goal differential, which is second-best in the West, behind only the conference-leading Chicago Blackhawks, who are plus-27.

Notes: The Dallas Stars began a four-game homestand in disappointing fashion Tuesday by being shut out 4-0 by the Nashville Predators. Dallas had not been shut out in 16 games, since a 2-0 road loss to the Phoenix Coyotes on Feb. 2. The Stars have beaten the Anaheim Ducks already this season, besting their Pacific Division rivals 3-1 at American Airlines Center on Feb. 8. Dallas is 6-0-1 in its last seven games against the Ducks and hasn't lost to Anaheim in regulation since Oct. 26, 2010 -- a game the Ducks won 5-2 thanks to a pair of goals from Bobby Ryan.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
