Anaheim Ducks (32-22-4) at Minnesota Wild (30-22-5), 5 pm

It seems the 9-man logjam on the Anaheim blueline has found some relief. The Ducks traded Paul Mara to the Montreal Canadiens for a 5th round pick before sending a 6th round pick to Ottawa for Finnish winger Jarkko Ruutu. This is a good thing, it seems -- the Ducks can play twelve forwards in the near future (though not tonight, I think -- work visas or something).

And hell -- whenever I get around to continuing my Star Wars rip-off saga (Episode 4, Episode 5), he'll fit right in. :)
Prediction: Getzlaf's baby is born with more hair than the father.
