They've failed to earn at least a point in only five games and their 60 points tie them for the fifth most through 38 games, matching the Montreal Canadiens in 1975-76 and 1976-77. Two of the Ducks' points are from shootout victories, which would have been ties back then.

The 1929-30 Boston Bruins top the list with 67 points after 38 games.
