Idle Ducks clinch Stanley Cup Playoff berth
The Anaheim Ducks clinched a berth in the Stanley Cup Playoffs on Tuesday night when the Dallas Stars lost to the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Anaheim Ducks clinched a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs on Tuesday night without playing a game. The Ducks were assured of a postseason berth when the Dallas Stars lost 4-2 to the Chicago Blackhawks at United Center.

Anaheim (46-18-7) is in second place in the Pacific Division. The Ducks are four points behind the first-place San Jose Sharks, who beat the Edmonton Oilers 5-2 on Tuesday night, but have played three fewer games. Anaheim's next game is Wednesday night against the Calgary Flames in the opener of a three-game road trip.

Quote of the Day

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
