    As October creeps closer, another NHL season creeps with it. In the 26th of a series of team-by-team summer reviews and season previews, here's a glimpse at the ... Anaheim Ducks With four straight Pacific Division titles under their belt, the Anaheim Ducks entered 2016-17 with high hopes. Their defensive core, headlined by goalie John Gibson , staved off rival playoff contenders on the way to yet another postseason berth. A 30-goal breakout season for Rickard Rakell , coupled with more production from veterans Ryan Getzlaf , Corey Perry and Ryan Kesler , helped Anaheim boast the best home record (29-8-4) outside of Washington and Pittsburgh. And a late-season tear, including a 14-2-3 finish,
