The Ducks and Canucks get set for a west coast battle Monday night inside the Honda Center.

The Ducks had their opening game spoiled as the Sharks shut them out 2-0.
The puck drops at 10:00 PM EST.
The Canucks got some early revenge on the Calgary Flames to start the season, but couldn’t complete the home and home sweep as they split the pair of games to start their 2015-2016 campaign.
Vancouver spoiled the Flames’ home opener with a 5-1 route, but the Flames returned the favor with a 3-2 win in the Canucks house.
F Daniel Sedin leads the Canucks through their first two games with a goal and a pair of assists.
Vancouver’s downfall has been their struggles in the 3rd period. They’ve allowed the opposition (Calgary) to have 28 3rd period shots.
However, the bright spot, G Ryan Miller has stopped 64 of the 68 shots he’s faced. Miller will hope to have his defenseman Alex Edler back as he continues to battle the flu.
The Ducks main problems in the season opener stemmed from the discrepancy in shots.
Anaheim had just 3 shots to their credit in the 3rd period and allowed the Sharks to fire 44 against them as they fell 2-0 on the road.
G Frederik Andersen made 42 saves in the loss to the Sharks, which was a very impressive performance for him as he was under constant pressure all night long. Defenseman Kevin Bieska, who made his Ducks debut against the Sharks, played 597 games in a Vancouver uniform before being traded to the Ducks.
Anaheim went 3-1-1 in 5 meetings last season against the Canucks with 3 of those meetings going into overtime.

Anaheim played well even though they didn’t come away with a win against the Sharks. Their defense and goaltending was satisfying as they look to build in some offense to compliment that.
