Ducks Road Trip
Day 3 -- Ducks visit NYC
1:04 a.m. – The Ducks touch down in Newark, New Jersey after thumping an injury-depleted Detroit Red Wings squad, 5-2 at Joe Louis Arena. Hard to believe it was only the fifth regulation victory at JLA in the franchise’s 20-year history (5-25-8).

1:30 a.m. – With practice scheduled for one o'clock in the afternoon at AmeriHealth Pavilion, adjacent to Prudential Center, players quickly head up to their rooms for some much needed sleep at the team hotel in Jersey City.

10:30 a.m. Teemu Selanne has a sit-down interview with the NHL Network for the upcoming series “NHL Revealed: A Season Like No Other.” The seven-part series, premiering on the NBC Sports Network in the U.S. on Jan. 22, will follow more than two dozen of the league’s top stars – on and off the ice – as they participate in 2013-14 regular-season games, including the four 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series™ games. The Ducks and Kings will square off at Dodger Stadium on Jan. 25.

After his 30-minute interview wraps up, Selanne grabs a quick bite before catching the team bus to practice. His breakfast of choice: Oatmeal with wheat toast and a cup of coffee (black). "I always drink my coffee black. Always," he says.

11:30 a.m. – The Ducks board a bus bound for AmeriHealth Pavilion in Newark. The 15-minute bus ride includes a ride over the Passaic River by way of the Pulaski Skyway (a four-lane bridge-causeway that connects Jersey City to Newark).

What’s unique about AmeriHealth Pavilion is that it’s connected to Prudential Center, making it convenient for the equipment and training staff. With that being said, the walk from the visiting locker room to the practice rink is a long one. After the 40-minute practice, goaltender Jonas Hiller makes it about a quarter distance before he says, “I could just sit here and relax for a bit.” Hiller keeps going and eventually makes his way back to the locker room in full gear.

12:00 p.m. – The Ottawa Senators are wrapping up their morning skate at Prudential Center as the Ducks begin their stretching exercises in the hallway. Jakob Silfverberg and Sens defenseman Erik Karlsson share laughs while Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry and former Duck Bobby Ryan catch up with each other at the end of the hall. Silfverberg was drafted by the Senators in 2009 and made his NHL debut last season before being traded to the Ducks for Ryan last summer.

1:00 p.m. – Head coach Bruce Boudreau leads his team through a brisk 40-minute practice. Despite getting in late last night, Boudreau says the practice serves as a way to flush the legs after a game the night before.

“We practiced hard, but it was just 40 minutes of up and down,” he says. “We wanted to make sure they get the lactic acid out of their legs. They went from a long flight back into here. I thought it was good work for them.”

2:15 p.m. – As the rest of the players go their separate ways, Cam Fowler, Kyle Palmieri and Dustin Penner are heading to New York City for separate in-studio interviews. For Fowler and Palmieri, the site is the NHL Live Studio for an interview with Steve Mears and E.J. Hradek on NHL Live. In addition, the two will be interviewed by several NHL.com writers in the NHL offices next door. Penner will go on Fox Sports 1’s ‘Crowd Goes Wild’ show.

3:00 p.m. – Cam and Kyle arrive in NYC and take a quick tour of the NHL offices before splitting off into one-on-one interviews with NHL.com writers. Afterward, both are mic’d up for NHL Network promo reads. Fowler goes first and his first line is simple: I’m Cam Fowler of the Anaheim Ducks and you’re watching the NHL Network. Not so easy after all, as Fowler flubs it by saying he’s a member of the “NHL Ducks.” This draws a big laugh from those inside the small studio. He ends up nailing his second take. Palmieri is mostly flawless.

3:30 p.m. – The duo heads next door to the NHL Powered By Reebok Store to knock out some social media content for the league. A funny moment occurs when Cam’s T-shirt gets caught up with his collared shirt, so Kyle comes to the rescue. Teamwork at its finest.

4:00 p.m. – The NHL Live in-studio taping is complete, and Cam and Kyle show some #DucksDedication by holding up a rally towel inside the store before exploring Times Square.

8:30 p.m. – The remaining players convene in the hotel’s lobby before heading out to a team dinner in New York City.
