    Hello hockey fan(s?).The Anaheim Ducks are fresh off an exciting two game series against the LA Kings in the great city of London, England. Today, they find themselves in Detroit Michigan, another city replete with history and gore, er, I mean lore. Watching Game 1 of the 07-08 NHL Season, made me proud to be a fan of this great sport. I mean, what other professional league can claim they have no idea how to...

    Hello Ducks fans, I'm back to regale you all with my take on the greatest game on earth. When I signed off last time (seemingly for good) the Anaheim Ducks of Los Angeles Anaheim were the glorious winners of Lord Stanley's silver chalice. Fast forward. A lot has changed. Out with Dustin Penner, in with convicted criminal Todd Bertuzzi. Possibly out with Scott Niedermayer, in with Mathieu Schneider. Hopefully out with Teemu Selanne and his...

    So this is what it feels like to collapse across a finish line. Normally I collapse well before the yellow tape. Prematurely, the doctors like to call it. But here I am, on the plus side of a 6-2 Stanley Cup clinching victory by the Anaheim Ducks. It was quite a ride. There was a certain amount of gratification "covering" the Stanley Cup Finals for LAist. I use the term "covering" in the most Chatsworth...

    Is it me, or is there an explosion of hockey interest here on the mighty LAist? Thank you Adam Rose! I was beginning to feel like that solitary nutjob on the corner who rails on about the miraculous healing power of magnets. Sure, hockey fever is finally rearing its rubbery head with Anaheim only one game away from winning the series, but on the bright side... it's better than nothing. (Which is also good...

    I'm so intelligent when it comes to hockey there should be a bylaw barring me from showing off like this. All of the pre-game talk yesterday was how Ottawa had all the momentum, how the Ducks defense was deflated due to Pronger's abscence, and how the hometown crowd was going to run amok with Alanis induced fever. Who predicted a 3-1 series lead coming home on Wednesday for Game 5? Yes, probably your uncle....

    Sports, in my opinion, is the forebearer to "reality" TV as we know it today. We view many of our sports heroes as being close to super human. And yet with today's access to information we find ourselves readily identifying with the Clark Kent side of Superman. This is exactly the allure of the reality TV genre. Regular folks doing extraordinary stuff for our viewing pleasure. Now Chris Neil of the Ottawa Senators isn't exactly...

    There is a silver lining in the Anaheim Ducks' 5-3 loss last night to the Ottawa Senators. It means that there is now a Game 5 guaranteed to occur at the Honda Center. Of course, this good news is offset by the fact that you folks will have to hear from me for another couple days. I don't know if you caught the anthems yesterday, but there's something special hearing 18,000 people belt out a...

    Do not forget to pronounce the 'i' when you tell all of your friends that Chris Kunitz is likely back for tonight's ever so important Game 3 between your Anaheim Ducks and the Ottawa Senators (NBC @ 5 pm). Who is this Chris Kunitz fellow? He's like the bread in a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. He's like the ice in a gin and tonic. He's like the third part of something that has 3...

    James Caan, Ray Liotta, Cuba Gooding Jr., Josh Lucas, Jerry O'Connell, "Snoop Dogg", Jerry Bruckheimer and Mark McGwire. Is this the cast for next summers biggest blockbuster? No way hockey fans! That's just a sprinkling of the giant mega superstars that attended last nights 1-0 win by the hometown Ducks. The Ducks are now up 2-0 in the series and are poised to bring the Stanley Cup to the West Coast for the first...

    Game 2 goes tonight at the Honda Center as superstar Travis Moen and the Anaheim Ducks host Ray "Don Magic" Emery and the Ottawa Senators. All the buzz thus far has been about how Anaheim's top checking line of Sammy Pahlsson, Rob Niedermayer and Travis Moen have outplayed Ottawa's top scoring line of Jason Spezza, Dany Heatley and Daniel Alfredsson. Nuts to all that sports talk gibberish. The real story is how there is...
