Question - how many minutes are in a hockey game in regulation?Answer - 60, but you would not know it judging by how the Ducks play.Seems like such a simple concept - play a full 60 minutes of hockey. How hard can that be? Exceptionally difficult for the Ducks, who checked out for part of the game against the Minnesota Wild on Sunday, losing 5-3. Insert heavy sigh here. New...
A LOOK BACK:
The same old song and dance has fantasy players scratching their head in Anaheim. Anaheim jumps out to a lead, looks pretty good for awhile and then the opponent imposes their will and takes over the game before Anaheim tries to recover and its too late. New coach, same result.
