Then there’s the other five months, not to mention the Olympic break in February. In all, it’s not a bad schedule for the Ducks: They start the season at home (10/3 against San Jose), end the season at home (4/11 against Edmonton) and the longest road trip in between is a six-game, 12-day stretch at the end of January.
Also, in response to fan feedback, the team will host six Saturday games this year. Only eight home games prior to this season have fallen on a Saturday.
