Ducks hand Blues rare home loss

What was supposed to be a clash of Western Conference giants was quickly squashed by the Anaheim Ducks. Ryan Getzlaf extended his point streak to 13 games with a goal and an assist, and the Ducks handed the St. Louis Blues their second regulation loss at home with a 5-2 victory Saturday at Scottrade Center. The Ducks (20-7-5) got goals from Andrew Cogliano, Corey Perry and Getzlaf in the opening 7:29. Perry and Getzlaf scored in a 1:53 span to chase Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak. Nick Bonino and Cogliano had a goal and an assist, and rookie Frederik Andersen stopped 26 shots to improve to 8-1-0. The Ducks, who defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 in a shootout Friday, are 5-1-2 in their past eight games.

What will the future hold for the Class of 2015? Time will tell.

My youngest has now graduated from high school. Back in 1980, I was the youngest of my family who graduated.
