Purple and Teal are great colors. 

Our team will beat your momma’s team right after we whip your team.

The pond is official duck residence for momma and future babies..  (or is that too cute? :-)

Ducks strengths:
Scott Neidermyer
Teemu Selanne
Randy Carlyle, been here before and knows how to prepare the team
Finess of puck
Penalty killing
Deep bench
Great pizza downstairs at First Class Pizza (a little costly but worth it)


Colorado strengths (from watching only one game)
getting to the puck fast
Fighting for the puck and also just cause
Goalie
Large fan base in LA area due to their past wins so duckie fans will have to outyell them, but we can do that

Devils are going to turn the Hurricanes into a Tropical Depression!

I’m rooting for the Ducks because of Scott Niedermeyer, and I hate the Avalanche.

duckies are looking GOOD!!!  Ilya is my hero.  Scott Niedermyer has stepped it up for the playoffs, he is everywhere doing everything which is one of the reason Ilya has all those scoreless minutes in goal, and Scott ain’t getting the recognition. 

WOOT!!!!!  I am having fun.

Avs are being jinxed by their own announcers…They called Joffrey Lupul “Jeffrey”. 

I sure hope tonite the announcer continue with “Jeffrey”.

The boys finally got themselves an opponents for the next round… Edmonton.  We have been off for a week so hopefully they can get the rust out of the gas can before the 2nd inning, but the Duckies have been strong in the 2nd all playoffs.  If they can keep the penalty killing going they will do good.

Healines from Thurs May 18:

Calgary Herald:  “Oilers cook Sharks, Ducks on menu”
“Oilers move on to Duck hunt”

The Calgary Sun:  “Talk of title is no longer off limits”
“Mayhem erupts after Oilers’ win”

Edmonton Journal:  “On to Duck hunt”
“Nieminen predicts Oil victory in Round 3”

Orange County Register: “Ducks identify next target”
“Carlyle Insists Ducks Won’t Be Rusty”

LATimes: “Ducks Finally Know Their Opponent”
“First look: Ducks vs. Edmonton”

Long Beach Press Telegram: “NHL: Oilers slip into West finals”

That mayhem story is about how two women had a cart and on top of cart tried to pretend it was Marti Gras and some guys’ fireworks hit their cart and they fell down.

Long Beach Press Telegram is terrible in their coverage of the Duckies, but they had them losing in the 1st round, quickly, so I guess they feel their work is done. The LATimes have been good about having some really good articles every day, I especially like Helene Elliott’s analysis.

Those puns in canada will make for some good trash talk to spur our guys on, I sure hope. Plus all this counting their chickens (Ducks?) before they hatch is like talking about a no-hitter.
