Oh Hey California, Didn’t See You There…

25 01 2012

Just a quick update, since us bloggers have lives outside of Hockey’s Finest (I know, so hard to believe), I’m currently in Florence, Italy doing a study abroad program!  So, unfortunately I won’t be blogging as immediately as I would like (damn you, time difference), doesn’t mean I’m not paying attention to all our hockey players and teams from outside the US!

With that in mind, let’s turn our attention to sunny southern California, where one team is quietly having a resurgence.  I’m talking about the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim.

It's knuckle puck time!

Unfortunately I’m not talking about those ducks (not to mention the sexiest fake coach hockey has ever seen), but these Ducks:

Look, Ma, we still have all our teeth!

All but written off by most of the hockey world, the Ducks have gone 8-1-1 in their last 10 games, racking up a lot of points missed earlier in the season with former head coach Randy Carlyle.  In fact, they hadn’t lost in regulation in 10 games until last night against the Stars, losing 1-0.  It seems that since Bruce Boudreau took over, all three of the team’s stars have picked up the pace and started scoring a bit (or, as they say in hockey-land, “making things happen out there”).

How do you guys feel about Anaheim improving their play?  They still only have 43 points in a very competitive Western Conference, but do you think they could make the playoffs?  Sound off in the comment section below and let us know what you think!

Until next time,


PS I saw James Neal is in for Ovi at the All-Star game, but I’ll let L write that post since she has an invested interest (aka becoming a mormon so she can marry both Letang and Neal.  I know that isn’t all Mormonism is, but for our purposes, that’s it).

So…I have actually never thought of becoming a Mormon…but…now that you mention it…

PS– have fun in Italy, M! Stay safe. I expect a full report when you get back :)
