The following story appeared in the March 4th issue of Puq Magazine.
There was a certain magic about the 2007 Anaheim Ducks championship team, and it had nothing to do with its twin pillars on defense (Scott Niedermayer and Chris Pronger). It didn’t have anything to do with its two excellent goaltenders, each a possessor of impressive playoff records. It didn’t even concern the youthful infusion of talent brought to the table by the wonder “twins” Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry.
It was the swagger of a team that had the best third line in hockey.
