In a complete side-story irrelevant to hockey, it's Thanksgiving week, and my brother, his wife, and his 4- and 1-year-old children are staying at my place for the week. I honestly believe it's the first time that somebody younger than 20 has been inside my house -- let's hope
nobody not everybody dies!
But no time for much blogging or hockey today -- Sleek's nephew needs lots of attention! Here's an old cartoon for you. :)
In the meantime, here's some slight encouragement for Ducks fans -- visitors this season who have spent two days playing two games in Southern California have shown a strong pattern of alternation, and with the Kings' loss yesterday, it's theoretically the Ducks' turn to cash in today.
Teams playing in Anaheim and Los Angeles on consecutive days this season
|Visiting Team||First Game||Second Game||Two Game Result|
|Dallas Stars||10/21 @ANA W 3-1||10/22 @LAK L 0-1||One win, one loss|
|Nashville Predators||11/8 @LAK L 3-4||11/9 @ANA W 4-2||One win, one loss|
|Vancouver Canucks||11/10 @LAK W 3-2||11/11 @ANA L 3-4||One win, one loss|
|Minnesota Wild||11/12 @LAK L 2-5||11/13 @ANA W 3-2||One win, one loss|
|Detroit Red Wings||11/19 @LAK W 4-1||11/20 @ANA ???||???|
Prediction: Pattern gets broken. Ducks decide to Carlyle instead of winning.
