Game Day: Ducks
Yes, I know the Ducks were a Disney team and therefore were named for Donald, not Daffy, but I've never liked Disney and am a huge Looney Toons fan, so there. Besides, Disney is to, well, DISNEY to have ever produced an image of Donald after having been shot in the face with a shotgun.
So, after looking very ineffective for 50 of 60 minutes against Quick, Doughty, Kopitar, Smyth, et al, the Thrashers head up the road to take on Selanne, Bobby Ryan, Ryan Getzlaf, and Corey Perry. The Ducks have come out flat thus far, going 1-3 and giving up a flock of goals. Tonight might be a good opportunity for the new line combo of Kane, Antropov, and Peverly to get a spark going.
