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.
