If this wasn’t the best game of the season for the inconsistent Ducks (12-11-3) it certainly belongs on the short list.
“That’s the type of game our hockey club has to play night in and night out,” Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. “It was a good one for us. We feel good about ourselves because we won a big hockey game.
There are wins, there are satisfying wins and then there are Damn, that felt good wins. Last night’s 2-0 triumph over the Kings would certainly qualify as the latter.
It wasn’t just that it was a second straight victory for the Ducks, or that it came over a bitter divisional rival, but that it happened in an electric, sold-out Honda Center in which the boisterous gaggle of Kings fans who made the trip from L.A. had little to cheer about.
I would add more, but after 5 minutes of google searching Duck blogs, I started to feel like there was a razor blade being slowly stroked along the interior of the soft tissue around my skull. So I stopped.
But I did find these photos of fans from the game last night.
Notice anything? Like how not one of those Duck fans looks like they know anything about hockey besides that its played on ice.
Anyways… moving right along with our lives.
