08:13 AM ET 01.24 | On their ledger, the Ducks are sparkling, sitting pretty at 2-0 with a dozen goals scored. But the consecutive triumphs hardly were without blemishes, Bruce Boudreau even acknowledged Wednesday that his team was "lucky to end up with the win" in the latter game, Monday against the Flames. The final was 5-4. "But I thought, in the end, our first 15 minutes of the first period and our first 15 minutes of the third period were really good," the coach said. "I'd like to think we deserved it." ... The Ducks also have permitted power-play goals four of the seven times they've been shorthanded. Playing 5-on-5, they're a plus-6 in goals. "I think we need to communicate a little bit more," defenseman Cam Fowler said.

I would like to thank Teemu for posing for this picture after eating 3 bowls of chili.

What we don't see is how he was propelled down the ice right after this picture was taken.

Couldn't have. They haven't played the Flyers, yet.
