Your Daily Sauce: Kit of the Day – Just Ducky

Jakob Silfverberg has found gold in playoffs before

ANAHEIM >> Jakob Silfverberg's hometown is Gavle, Sweden, which has a river running through it. People with permits can catch salmon, right downtown. You don't see that everywhere. You also don't see the Gavle Goat, or Gavlebocken, everywhere. It is a large straw goat that the townspeople build for the Christmas season and it observed its 50th anniversary last year.

Ducks Get Much Needed Break

The Anaheim Ducks became the first team in the league to advance to the conference semi-finals with a four game sweep of the Calgary Flames.

Whicker: Luck of the Ducks, futility of the Flames in Game 2

ANAHEIM - You might well say the Ducks didn't deserve to win Game 2, But in recent years our lives have been invaded by a drought, several mudslides, a few fires and two bad football teams, and we didn't deserve them either. Ryan Getzlaf wasn't even trying to score the game-winning goal Saturday night.

Whicker: Flames' absence is a present for Ducks

ANAHEIM >> He didn't have time to wonder what was wrong with this picture. Kevin Bieksa got the puck and looked up and saw the landscape of Antarctica. Nothing but permafrost, as far as he could see. Well, he did see Ryan Getzlaf, motoring toward the opposite blue line, but he didn't see any opponents.

Antoine Vermette slashes ref, given abuse of official penalty and ejected

What was Antoine Vermette thinking?The Arizona Coyotes forward slashed an official during Tuesday night’s game against the Anaheim Ducks. What provoked him? It appeared Vermette didn’t like the way the official dropped the puck, so he gave him a whack with his stick – a big no, no. For those thinking, “he didn’t hit him that hard,” that won’t fly. The NHL has a zero...
