Jets look to tame giant-killing Ducks in SoCal

With the Winnipeg Jets having already shifted into late-season mode, it would seem as if the recently resurgent Anaheim Ducks will be unable to spring another surprise on a playoff-bound squad when the teams meet Wednesday in Southern California.

The Ducks are not officially eliminated from playoff contention, but that day is coming soon -- not that it has lessened their edge. It has done quite the opposite, in fact, with Anaheim going 6-3 over its last nine games.

Teams currently in the playoff picture, such as the Nashville Predators and Arizona Coyotes, have felt the recent bite of the prideful Ducks. And teams fighting to earn a wild-card berth -- the Montreal Canadiens, Florida Panthers and Colorado Avalanche (twice) -- have been turned away after entering in what seemed to be a chance to make some ground.
