More sucking at shootouts from Anaheim last night, thanks to a shoutout* by Khabibulin. (I wonder why Ryan Shannon was not one of the three shooters last night; I thought that was why he was on the roster...)

Still, the standings point guarantees that by next Tuesday, the Ducks will still be first in the west. The Sharks, by next Tuesday, will be 2nd.

Why, dear readers, do I make such a fuss about next Tuesday?

Tuesday is the first of eight matchups between these early-season western powerhouses. An opening blow in the (meaningful) Battle of California.

And I will be there, proudly in Row B, drunk as a skunk. I only get three games a season up there, but looks like I picked a winner.

Can't fucking wait.

* shoutout = shutout in a shootout
