Canucks-Ducks games are never boring. Not that I can recall. There's no love between these teams and so it's usually a chippy affair. As you can see above, the Ducks have a 4-10-6 record away from the pond. Their GM has declared that all players except Selanne and Koivu are available. That may have been said to light a fire under his team's ass. Anaheim is 4-0-1 in their last 5 games. They beat the Oilers 5-0 on Friday. Ryan Getzlaf had

4 assists. Corey Perry and Teemu Selanne had a goal and an assist each and Jonas Hiller got the goose egg. So maybe there's a turnaround happening with these Quacks. The Canucks had better not underestimate them, because we've seen what the Ducks can do to us when that happens: Turnover/Transition hell. Odd man rushes against that make you wanna kick the shit outta your $2000 TV.
