It is down to the final few games of the regular season for the Anaheim Ducks and while Anaheim tries to finish off clinching a playoff spot, the team has had some trouble scoring lately. It looks like the lone consistent option is Ryan Getzlaf at this point of the season. Getzlaf has 44 points in 39 games for the team this year, including six points over his last five contests.
The Ducks are going to need Getzlaf to keep scoring if they want to have a chance in the playoffs. The reason for that is because Anaheim is proving to be a very inconsistent team in regards to putting the puck in the net. There could be nights where they score four or five goals and the next night, it is one or two. It is those kinds of problems that can doom any teamís chances of doing anything productive.
