First Game vs Sharks.. Lets go Ducks! I unfortunately won't be home to view the game and don't have DVR since I just moved. This is not fun for me. Keep me updated via twitter @jessicaleerose.
I'm out tonight filming something for a web series I'm hoping to pitch in the near future. Not that I won't be constantly checking the score on my iphone already; but still interaction with Ducks fans while watching the score will be kind of like being there.. not really but you catch my drift.
Sadness also that Sunday nights game will also be lost on me. My Ducks fandom quota just dropped like 30 points.
Ok so I'd like to hear your predictions for tonights game.. I honestly have no idea but I think we end first period 1-1 from there I'll recalculate my predictions via twitter. Game final 3-2 Ducks. Fingers crossed guys and gals .. fingers crossed. Thoughts?

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
