Ducks Gameday—Canucks putting the “win” back in “twin”

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.

I hate you.

You suck.

“Injure one of ‘em.”

You are dead to me now.

7-3 Canucks
Henrick (2) Daniel (2), Naslund, Bieksa, Salo

Giguerre (3)

I may have lost the bet, but I've still got my pride! Be sure to take plenty of pictures :-)

The Joke IS pretty funny though. Is it bad that I laughed?

Should be a beauty. So I guess we won't be looking for a yellow shirt next to the penalty box, huh Sleek?

4-3 Canucks win in OT. Sleek's attendance record goes for a shit.

God Dammit!!!!

God Dammit!!!!

Aw, don't go blaming Pahlsson--he didn't even fulfill his part of the prediction.

Unless, of course, you are upset at the Canucks not scoring on the power play. Pahlsson took 2 out of every 3 shorthanded shifts, and was his usual stellar self.

Oh, and as for being at the game, we had pretty decent seats toward the front of the upper bowl. I don't have any pictures or any particularly powerful stories, but I did learn that my digital camera is broken, so that's something.

6-0 when Sleek attends now, outscoring opponents 29-11. Keep it up, Ducks.
