Corey Perry thinks that the Ducks will either get off to a good start or won't make the playoffs at all.
"You get behind the eight-ball early and you can pretty much pack your season in," Perry said. "It's going to be crucial that we're ready to play from the start to get going. We've got to be pushing right from the get-go." Teams won't get much room for failure in a 48-game season. One prolonged cold streak or a bad month could be crippling.
