ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Teemu Selanne and Corey Perry vividly remember how it felt six years ago when the Anaheim Ducks went to the rink every day feeling they just couldn't be stopped from raising the Stanley Cup.
That feeling hasn't been around Anaheim much in the past few years, but it's all rushing back during the Ducks' spectacular 21-3-4 start to the lockout-shortened season.
Deep, balanced and brimming with confidence, the Ducks have compiled the NHL's second-best record, a sizable lead in the Pacific Division and a 12-game home winning streak during a roll Anaheim hasn't matched since that championship season.
Hockey is a blast again in Orange County, and the Ducks head into Wednesday night's showdown with league-leading Chicago (24-2-3) quietly confident this good feeling will last.
