Happy New Year!
Selanne, Getzlaf and Eminger used their plane tickets, but none are likely for the game tonight. As such, expect to see a version of last game's lineup with, perhaps, the obligatory Carlyle shuffle. The NHL scheduled only two games tomorrow, with the Winter Classic taking center stage, but the compressed Olympic schedule puts Anaheim right back on the road against Nashville on Saturday. It's a tight road trip with three games in the next four days and very little delineation between auld lang syne and the Ducks' New Year's resolutions. They'll need a solid effort in a tough divisional matchup; the team that showed up the day before Christmas Eve won't cut it.
I won't be at a computer for the comments, but I plan (PLAN) to be sober enough to mobile comment during the game. As of now, despite being up 9-1 in his fantasy matchup, Daniel has chosen to let Cam Ward tank his goalie stats instead of using his jinx powers on Marty Turco. Please urge him to see reason.
Post any game info and lineup changes in the comments. And if anyone has a stream link, please post that, too.
F all of our L's!
