Tough break for the Ducks last night: Dallas lost, but they couldn’t gain ground because of their own 3-0 loss in Chicago. San Jose has moved up to the 4th spot in the conference standings which — if the playoffs began today — might not be a horrible scenario. The Sharks are curiously bad at home and the Ducks have historically had their number at all times and in all places.
4. SAN JOSE: 38-21-8; 84 points; 114 possible points; 15 games left (7 at home)
