Ducks Gameday -- Battle of the Mediocres

Anaheim Ducks (5-5-3) at Detroit Red Wings (5-5-1), 4 pm
Anaheim Calling and Winging It In Motown -- Webbed foot vs. Winged wheel.

Whoa, weird.  Another struggling club?  After winning their first five games of the season, Detroit's now at .500 again, having gone six games without a victory, including an embarrassing loss to the Blue Jackets.  And after the Ducks won four of their first five games of the season, Anaheim's now at .500 again, with only one victory in its last eight games, including an embarrassing loss to the Blue Jackets.

Who can out-struggle the other once-proud franchise today?

Lazy Saturday; I just went back to a classic.

I'm out of the house most of today and will be watching today's game with some Wings and Ducks pals, so I'll probably be really comment-light today.  Have fun anyways!

Prediction: Somehow the two teams end up with an impossible double-loss.  But everybody's so used to their result that nobody really raises a fuss.

Go Ducks.
