Ducks Gameday: Blackhawks Friday!

New, 1 comment

An (almost) annual tradition. Blackhawks @ Ducks.

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

I'm pretty sure I've written about this before, but I'm too lazy to go read what I said. So forgive me if I'm repeating myself.

Almost every Black Friday since 2008, Anaheim has played Chicago (and always in Anaheim). There were some games against them on the day prior to 2008 as well, but less consistently. I'm not sure why it always happens, but It's become a tradition and it's the best.

Here's the history...

1995-96 season: Fri Nov 24 1995 at Ana Chicago 5, Anaheim 4 (OT)
1996-97 season: Fri Nov 29 1996 at Ana Anaheim 2, Chicago 0
2003-04 season: Fri Nov 28 2003 at Ana Anaheim 4, Chicago 3
2008-09 season: Fri Nov 28 2008 at Ana Anaheim 1, Chicago 0
2009-10 season: Fri Nov 27 2009 at Ana Anaheim 3, Chicago 0
2010-11 season: Fri Nov 26 2010 at Ana Chicago 4, Anaheim 1
2011-12 season: Fri Nov 25 2011 at Ana Chicago 6, Anaheim 5
2014-15 season: Fri Nov 28 2014 at Ana Chicago 4, Anaheim 1

We've lost the last few Black Friday games, and we'll definitely lose tonight.

But, tradition! Hooray!

To take up space in my gameday posts this season, so that I don't have to write so much, you'll be getting a glimpse of my playlist while I write this garbage.
