As of Monday, the Ducks (6-13-4, 16 points) are in last place in the Western Conference's Pacific Coast Division. Currently, veteran right winger Teemu Selanne leads Anaheim in scoring with 22 goals.
Then, on Saturday (8:00 p.m. ET), the Flyers travel to Phoenix to face a gritty Coyotes' squad, which is 12-7-3 overall (27 points) and is 6-4-2 at home.
