Blackhawks Down Low:
Real stat: the Ducks first line has the most punchable faces in the NHL.
Game Time: 7:30 PMTV/Radio: Comcast Sports Net/WGN 720Last meeting: Ducks won 2-1, March 26 at the United Center (In the most frustrating game ever, but Ray Emery was in net!)Other guys: On The Duck Pond
Tonight, the Blackhawks welcome what could possibly be Orange County's finest hockey team, the Anaheim Ducks. The Ducks were one of the hottest teams in the league last year, using a second half push to lead them to the fourth seed in the playoffs where they were bounced by the Nashville Predators. Their second half surge was led by shame to my last name, Corey Perry. His 50 goals came as a result of being on a line with Bobby Ryan and Ryan Getzlaf combined with a real stellar Anaheim power play.
Anaheim is coming off a rough weekend, losing 3-1 to Dallas and 5-4 to Phoenix. Hiller was pulled in the second period of the Phoenix game after giving up 5 goals on 19 shots (woof). The Shame of Omaha,...

Every November hockey players sport unusual facial hair in support of Movember, a month of raising funds for men’s health issues.
For Movember, Hiller isn’t just going to grow some facial hair of his own, but plaster his mask with black and white images of teammates sporting their mustaches.
The Goalie Guild unveiled the images today:
The mask Jonas Hiller will wear during...
Movember is the month-long effort to raise funds and awareness for men's health issues by growing fabulous facial hair throughout November. Given that NHL players are familiar with going unshaven for a specific time period, they're naturals for Movember participation — witness 10 of the best 'staches from last season.
Anaheim Ducks goaltender Jonas Hiller may have...
The last time Patrick Maroon was recalled to Anaheim, he did not see any playing time. This time, he is likely to be on the ice and in the line up while the Ducks are on a seven game road trip. Maroon joined the Ducks in Chicago and practiced with the team on Monday. Will he be on the ice for Tuesday night's game against the Blackhawks? Coach Randy Carlyle would neither...
NWA Hollywood sent out the following:
Due to live Anaheim Ducks hockey and Anaheim Bolts soccer on KDOC Los Angeles, NWA Championship Wrestling from Hollywood will be preempted this Saturday and may not be seen in its entirety. The decision to re-run last week’s episode has been made, so viewers won’t miss out on a new episode. The program is scheduled to return to its regular...
Remember Duck Hunt? That old video game for the original Nintendo that came with the plastic gun that you would shoot at the screen and that dog would laugh at you when you messed up? Well, Chicago Blackhawks winger Dan Carcillo loved that game as a kid. Either that, or he's getting a little too clever about playing against the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night. "Favorite game...
It's funny hearing people rant about narratives in sports journalism. It's funny because the story going into the night was the Blackhawks' struggles on the shootout (scoreless in six tries), the shootout drills held during practice, and what happens when the Hawks play against the Ducks the very next game? Boom. Shootout.To be fair, it was something that felt almost...
Speaks highly of Ducks but he had most success in New Jersey
Two bad losses and the Ducks needed a road trip to turn things around. OK, the ship is still not straight, but it is veering closer to the right direction after a 3-2 shootout loss to the Chicago Blackhawks. Gaining a point in the loss was certainly a vast improvement over zero points and pulling Jonas Hiller from net because he looked, to be quite honest, awful. Some morning...
The Ducks have reassigned left wing Jean-Francois Jacques to the Syracuse Crunch, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey Leagu...
Yeah, it's only eight games. There's so much further to go, but seeing as how it never happened last season, the fact that the Hawks put their head to the pillow Tuesday night as first in the division, well, we'll just let that put a smile on our face. If only for a second or two.
Anyway, weird game against Anaheim. Some good, some bad. But the problems of Saturday...
Facial hair in the National Hockey League is nothing
new. Each year in the playoffs the
hockey beards come out, but long before that point there is Movember. Movember is and effort throughout the month
of November to raise money and awareness for different men’s health issues by
growing mustaches. On some the mustaches
look good, while on others they provide...

Seems rare in the four seasons I've been writing this, but the Hawks go into tonight's game, the fourth in a row I can say this, with no injury concerns or lineup changes. Sure, there may be some shuffling of lines, but it's unlikely. Though the Hawks juggled things in the 3rd period of the shootout loss to the Avalanche, that was more to get back into the game. Most...
The Anaheim Ducks didn't get one of the longest road trips in team history off to an ideal start. They also might have trouble earning a victory in the next stop on that trek.
The well-rested Minnesota Wild will try to extend a five-game home win streak over the Ducks on Thursday night.
Anaheim's seven-game road trip is tied for the club's third-longest ever, and the...
The Chicago Blackhawks put their six-game points streak on the line as they face the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night at the United Center.
