Ducks related #RandomNHLfacts from @NHLhistoryGirl:

Today's (10/23) hockey history brought to you by Wild Wing's fiery ways. No really. He's on fire. (That was probably a bad idea.)

To balance that out, the Ducks tweeted this out yesterday:
We're celebrating #ThrowbackThursday with a look back at the #NHLDucks (Mighty Ducks) inaugural game. WATCH: .

I love the guy in the teal shirt saying "Let's Go!" that they use repeatedly in that video. They followed it up with a response from a fan who has added to my Christmas list.

"@MaskedMallard4: @AnaheimDucks Here is the tape of the Inaugural Game." Cool, thanks for sharing! #DucksDedication
