How come we play the Ducks twice this season? I thought we only played WC teams from two divisions once every season.
I think it is like this:
Division Rivals (4 teams) played 6 times = 24 games
Conference Rivals (10 teams) played 4 times = 40 games
Western Conference teams (15 teams) play one time each = 15 games
TOTAL = 79 games
To reach the 82 game schedule we wind up playing 3 Western Conference games twice
This year that means: Anaheim, Phoenix and The Blackhawks twice from The West
Excited for this game, excited for my first GDT. Selanne has looked ridiculous these last few games, worried about him tonight. If we go down early the crowd will most likely start the 'we want avery' chants again. One positive to take out of a good Hiller performance is that at least the Movember helmet will get lots of camera time.

I have Fowler on my yahoo team so I'm hoping he doesn't play tooo poorly
