Still alive, Ducks look to close ground on Wild

The Anaheim Ducks sank about as low as they could go over the past two months, winning just three games in a 23-game stretch, but thanks to lukewarm performances by the rest of the teams in the lower half of the Western Conference standings, they remain firmly in the playoff race.

Anaheim (23-27-9, 55 points) will head into Tuesday's game at the Minnesota Wild (27-26-6) just five points behind Minnesota for the West's second wild-card spot. The Wild have made things easier for pursuers by losing their past four games and eight of nine.

The Ducks just completed a positive week under general manager and new coach Bob Murray, who fired Randy Carlyle on Feb. 10 and decided to step into the fire as interim coach. Anaheim is 2-1-0 under Murray so far, including an impressive 5-2 win against the defending Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals on Sunday.
