Here's a streak to worry about, Sens fans

With the Ducks winning both their games at Honda Center, I’m sure the Ottawa Senators are feeling the pressure to return the favor for two games at Scotiabank Place. And they probably should be, considering that in each series this playoffs, whichever team first faced elimination lost.

But I’ll warn you, ticketholders of Ottawa, these Ducks know a thing or two about winning in tough-to-play-in buildings. Here’s the list of teams Carlyle’s Ducks have faced in the playoffs this year and last, and the road record for each series.

That’s a pretty tough set of buildings to play in, all situated a great distance away from Anaheim, yet the Ducks have gotten a road split or better in every series Carlyle has coached.

His Ducks are pretty road-playoff-tested, for sure. They've heard the big crowds. They've dealt with forced line-matches. They've hung in games and found ways to win.

The only question that matters now is: will it happen again?

Go Ducks.
