Minnesota Wild (32-23-6) at Anaheim Ducks (32-25-4), 7 pm
Hockey Wilderness and Anaheim Calling -- A, B, C, D, E, F, G -- H, I, J, K, Ellis, Emery.
Still not really following any hockey until the Ducks win a game, but here's a cartoon for your Friday:
The Great California Goalie Rush.
Who knows what this controversial new goaltender tandem can do for this season's tanking Ducks? In lieu of me trying to guess or do any sort of real work for this post, here's their stats lines for their last seasons in the NHL (Ellis this season with the Bolts; Emery last season with Philly).
|2010 - Dan Ellis||31||1678||13||7||6||82||2.93||741||659||.889||2|
|2009 - Ray Emery||29||1684||16||11||1||74||2.64||783||709||.905||3|
I'm still trying to work out some nicknames for either of these guys -- feel free to leave your suggestions, and I'll try them out tonight. That's right -- I'll be back in Row B tonight, a guest of my dad -- you know the green shirt drill.
Prediction: Tonight's game is shockingly tolerable.
p.s. Just saw this -- forget any thought of firing Bob Murray any time soon.
