 ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Coach Bruce Boudreau can't imagine an NHL team more eager to get back to work than the Anaheim Ducks.
Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf are playing for new contracts. Teemu Selanne knows he's running out of time at 42. And Boudreau simply detests sitting still, making the lockout particularly painful.
The Ducks all hope to rebound from last season's awful start, which kept them out of the playoffs for the second time in three years despite a big second-half surge when Boudreau took over.
Getzlaf knows his team can't afford another slow start in a shortened season. Yet if the Ducks play in their usual January form, their veteran-led roster could emerge as a playoff threat in the West.
Selanne is back for his 20th NHL season, still going strong.
