About the Ducks: They haven’t been very offensive this season and come to St. Louis ranked 30th in scoring, at 2.21 goals per game. Max Comtois (14) and Adam Henrique (11) are the only Ducks with 10 or more goals. The power play has been abysmal, dead last in the NHL at 9.4% success rate. Ryan Getzlaf is the top threat, but with only three power play goals.

Even with all that, the Ducks have been respectable on the road, going 10-11-3 compared to 6-18-4 at home. If the Ducks’ defensive numbers sound bad — 3.15 goals allowed per game, to rank 23rd — the Blues aren’t much better at 3.10 and 22nd.

With former Blue Ryan Miller retiring at the end of this season, the Ducks have been getting a look at goalie Anthony Stolarz. He’s playing well, with a 3-3-0 record, 2.25 GAA and .926 save percentage. One of those wins was a 38-save performance in a 3-2 overtime win over the Blues on March 28. Miller was honored Saturday night as he made his final home start, getting the victory as Anaheim beat the Los Angeles Kings 6-2.
