The scoreboard didn’t scream “drama” between the Anaheim Ducks and Vancouver Canucks last night, as the Ducks handily won 4-0. It sounds like Ryan Kesler’s over his former link to the city, too.
Despite spending the first 10 years of his NHL career with the Canucks, Kesler essentially referred to Vancouver as just another of the 29 stops he’ll visit whenever the Ducks are away from Anaheim.
As you can see from the video on his hit on Derek Dorsett (which left the grinding forward with an upper-body injury), Kesler was full of unfriendly statements on Tuesday.
One can excuse Vancouver crowds if they still take notice of the 30-year-old, though.
