Is It Time for Anaheim Ducks to Press Panic Button?

If you are a fan of the Anaheim Ducks, you have to be disappointed in the performance of the team in recent games.

The Ducks cannot seem to solve their recent opponents as they have lost three of the last four games. The shocking part of it is that they have lost those games at home, a place in which the Ducks started the season 20-0-2. They have been outscored at home 13-9 in the past four games. That does not sound good for a team that has dominated teams early on in the season. It is really hard to see a team that has all this talent and success struggle so much as of recently.

I can understand why it could be the reason because three of the four teams that they have lost to are trying to gain important points before the Olympic Break. The Minnesota Wild, Dallas Stars and Columbus Blue Jackets have really given the Ducks troubling times. The only team that the Ducks have beaten on this home stand was the Philadelphia Flyers. The Ducks have done a lot of things right, they just have not been able to get the pucks to get past the opposing goaltenders.

Is it time for the Ducks to panic? I do not believe so, but I think that they will be relieved when the Olympic Break begins. They will need a break after the recent struggles. I have faith that the team will bounce back, but losing a home stand in which the Ducks have had so much success proves to be a problem that needs to be solved.

The Ducks have the chance to get far, but as of recently they need to fix something fast, or there could be some issues once the break ends.
