To our Finnish posters:

Will the majority of the fans at the game be rooting for the Ducks or Jokerit?

Sorry if this is a dumb question.

Actually pretty hard to say. Some might root for Jokerit purely for the Finnish patriotism (team from home country beats big bad NHL team).
Then again, I think Jokerit is one of the most hated teams in the country, whereas the Finns of the Ducks are really sympathetic.

The most favorable situation would be that it's a tight and good game but only Selänne, Koivu and Lydman score for the Ducks and carry them to win

My personal feeling:

Today: 60-40% for Jokerit
Friday: 90-10% for Ducks

Still few hours at work, then back home and get ready to sit for 15-20 mins in a bus and in Hartwall Areena I am...woohoo!

I just hope that the spectators will UNLEASH HELL (in a positive way) if one of the Finns, especially Selänne scores today... Because knowing us Finns, there is a tiny chance that people won't know how to react. The game should've been on Friday/Sat, drunk Finns = lots of noise. Though it's good that the real event is on Friday.

When you say Ducks it really means just Teemu, Saku and Lydman (if he playes) likely for Finns. Though there might also be people who are not Jokerit fans that will be rooting for the Ducks. Hard to say.

For sure there is lots of ducks fans no matter if any finns played there anymore! Besides who likes Sabres anyway.. (just kidding) !

For me its ducks for Life and KalPa for life... Jokerit is OK but i dont see it has almost anything to do with Ducks. Selänne came from jokerit, so what? That really means nothing that special to me. I think its only Jokerit fans who think that way. Selänne is way more a Duck than a Jokeri.

Found the line ups on Jokerit's page. They have messed up some of Ducks' (or is McMillan sitting out?) but it looks quite ok.


Jokerit:
Ruuttu - Filppula - Eaves
Lahti - Kerälä - Pulkkinen
Hännikäinen - Hahl - Rita
Mäki - Tyrväinen - Heino

Nordlund - Dehner
Kivistö - Väänänen
Niemi - Klingberg
Manelius

Kilpeläinen (Tuohimaa)

So rookies Ruuttu and Hännikäinen are replacing the injured players. Ducks should watch out for that second line, otherwise offence looks manageable because of the injuries. I'm predecting that their defence will take a lot of penalties when they get frustrated. Kilpeläinen has played 3 shutouts out of 6 games so far this season. Latest one was on Saturday, which means that he's hot.


Ducks:
9 Bobby Ryan - 15 Ryan Getzlaf - 10 Corey Perry
33 Jason Blake - 11 Saku Koivu - 8 Teemu Selänne
41 Andrew Gordon - 7 Andrew Cogliano - 77 Devante Smith-Pelly
39 Matt Beleskey - 49 Maxime Macenauer - 16 George Parros

5 Luca Sbisa - 17 Lubomir Visnovsky
21 Sheldon Brookbank - 34 Nate Guenin
23 Francois Beauchemin - 4 Cam Fowler

1 Jonas Hiller (38 Dan Ellis)

First line with Ilari Filppula and Ben Eaves is also something to check out...even there is rookie playing with them now.

Well obviously yeah there are some Ducks fans also in Finland who root the whole team.

Some Ässät fans from Finland atleast. But yeah the team is not nearly as sexy for Finns compared to the Ducks.

Read that it is likely that the goalies will split the time in the game.

Interested on how they do against so much firepower.

Filppula-Eaves is a good pair but Ruuttu is a question mark which makes the line unpredictable.

Less than two hours to go!!

For those stuck in my situation. Fridays game will be replayed at 3PM central time on NHL Network. I think that is 1PM Pacific time.

Teemu arrived to the hotel with Perry and I suppose somebody drove his mercedes away...



Carlyle let the team go out last night..."they can have a glass/beer but not too many." The whole team left from the hotel by bus.

I also got some pics from todays early practice.. but I'm way too bad at using computers. I tried to upload them with the "insert image" link, but it shows only the url. I also tried the "attachments" button, but couldn't make it work either
