The Ducks have waddled one step closer to the Stanley Cup.

A 3-2 win in Game 1 sent 18,000 Anaheim Ducks of Anaheim fans home in a tizzy. Of course, the other 9,982,000 citizens in the Los Angeles area are probably wondering what all the fuss is about.

If they even noticed.

You can get the details of the actual game anywhere. How the Senators ran out of steam in the third period. How the Ducks came out and punished everything in sight. How 5 on 5 the Ducks carried the play and killed a key 5 on 3. How it was a very entertaining hockey game...

But I want to talk about the national anthems.

The Ducks brought in some smokin' hot blonde to belt out a fabulous rendition of "O Canada". Very talented. This girl is going places. The next big sensation!

In fact, I believe she could be a star with her mouth closed. With mouth open, the sky's the limit.

Then, someone decided to de-thaw and wheel out Stephen Stills to perform the American national anthem. Steve is apparently a two-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Let's just say last night's performance will not qualify him for a third trip to Cleveland.
