NHL Stanley Cup Pants Party: Red Wings Vs. Ducks

We have always found it amusing that Anaheim decided to take the positive modifier "Mighty" out of its name; we know they wanted to avoid the Disney context, but usually when there's a "Fighting" or a "Runnin'" in there, it's supposed to be a good thing. Now they are Ducks, simply Ducks.

Anyway, the Less-Than-Mighty Ducks kick off their Western Conference finals series tonight against the Red Wings, a franchise with no history of postseason success and a sedate, subdued, almost apathetic fan base. (After Buffalo's loss of home ice advantage last night, the Bfloblog is strangely quiet this morning.)

The Ducks are feeling confident, but the Red Wings are the Red Wings: They always think they're gonna win.

Again, no predictions from us, but over at James Mirtle's blog, they even have pie charts. Mmmm, pie.
