Jonas Hiller might have the best perspective on the Ducks' struggles during their past 15 games. As their goaltender, he has noticed everything that's gone wrong as well as right during a 2-9-4 slide that's threatened to torpedo their season.

"We have a lot of potential here," Hiller said Tuesday, prefacing a rather critical review of the Ducks' play. "It just seems we can't find a way to put it on the ice, at least not for 60 minutes.

"I think we always show it in parts of the games."

Above all, the Ducks' lack of experience and maturity beyond their first two lines and their top two defense pairs have blunted their momentum at times. A lack of confidence also has been a key factor during their recent skid.
