Vancouver Canucks (41-22-5, 4th in west) at Anaheim Ducks (41-17-11, 3rd in west)
Canucks are on a tear, having but one regulation loss in their last 13, an impressive 11-1-1, including 5-1 in OT/SO games. Ducks meanwhile have but one regulation loss in their last 12, with a record of 8-1-3; essentially the same regulation result but only 3-3 in OT/SO.
But really, the only stat that really matters is that I’m putting my perfect 5-0 attendance streak on the line tonight. That's right; I got a last-minute invite to see this one in person. I have no idea where at the Honda Center I’ll sitting, but I’ll be wearing my new St. Patty’s Ducks t-shirt and my friend next to me will be wearing a Canucks jersey.
Oh, and I’ll probably be over-telling my stupid two-liner: “What’s the easiest way to tell Henrik and Daniel Sedin apart?”
“Injure one of ‘em.”
Aw, I kid. Here’s a picture of nature’s freakiest twins with Sammy and some old dude after they won some sort of CD contest at the Olympics.
Prediction: Ducks 4, Canucks 1. Has the Penner-Perry-Getzlaf PPG line ever had as dominant a game as they did against the AHL Oilers? Each of them gets a goal, and Sammy scores a shortie.
