Overtime was good time for Ducks
Overtime was good time for the Anaheim Ducks in 2010-11.
Advantage Margin: -20
The Ducks have long been among the League leaders in times shorthanded, and last season's showing was no exception -- they were 21st with 305 power plays-allowed

Special Teams Goal Margin: +10
Why are the Ducks so happy Teemu Selanne is back? Largely because he makes their power play go -- the Finnish Flash had 16 of his 31 goals while Anaheim was a man up.

Goals by defensemen: 39
The Ducks had a pair of blueliners in double figures. Lubomir Visnovsky led all NHL defensemen with 68 points, including 18 goals, while rookie Cam Fowler scored 10 times.

Record: 34-10-2

Only two other teams won more often when scoring first than the Ducks. Anaheim turned 20 of its 25 first-goal leads at home into victories.

Scheduling
The Ducks start their season with two games in Europe and end October in the middle of a seven-game trip. They also have an eight-game trek in February and end their season with three road games. Their longest homestand is six games, part of an 11-in-13 stretch at Honda Center in November and December.

Great players need great players to play with. That's why we'll have a training camp and we'll find who the best two guys are suited to play with Stamkos.
