08:23 AM ET 02.06 | Thirty games only sounds like a lot. There will be 30 games remaining and plenty of points available to the Ducks after Monday night as they keep their postseason thoughts alive. But the reality, is the season is ticking away from the Ducks, and their game against the Calgary Flames could be one where it's win and keep believing or time for General Manager Bob Murray to look beyond this season. Letting a point get away Friday in an overtime loss to hapless Columbus only put more pressure on the Ducks to gain two points on the Flames tonight and get back to 10 points out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. "It's kind of at that point now," center Ryan Getzlaf said.

It could get worse Spiny. If Jamie Lee Curtis gets involved we'll have "when will Selanne go" threads.

Goodness sakes, they sure looked good on paper last summer. Cogliano's been an awesome pick up. They need a pounder up front with some hands - Boll from Columbus/Ruutu from the canes...

Why do you think there are constant threads about them the Jackets one's disappeared after they fired Arniel (for the most part) the Ducks have a great core and duck all besides that

0.8% chance to make the playoffs according to http://www.sportsclubstats.com... Sorry, Ducks. But math never lies...
