from Scott Burnside and Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
Burnside: Greetings, my friend. Well, every day it seems the playoff picture in both conferences becomes murkier and murkier. And the Anaheim Ducks are doing little to clarify the situation by continuing to collect points at an alarming rate. Wednesday they knocked off Carolina in overtime, two days after besting Calgary in a shootout. In their past 15 games, the Ducks are 11-2-2 and, while they remain in 13th place in the Western Conference, they have pulled to within eight points of the eighth and final playoff spot….
LeBrun: I had a chance to catch up with Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau before the team departed for Detroit this morning. There’s definitely a buzz in the Ducks’ dressing room that something special could be happening, despite the long odds.
“There’s a sense of optimism, for sure,” Boudreau told ESPN.com.
“The guys are believing that it’s possible. If we ever get to within six or four points, it’ll be a real race.”
more plus some Phoenix, Calgary, Washington and Winnipeg talk…
