Los Angeles Hockey: World Wrestling Entertainment

ANAHEIM -- All's well back at the Honda Center.
The morning after World Wrestling Entertainment invaded the arena, the Ducks returned to practice Tuesday and found everything still in order. While away for four games, the most notable changes came to their mix of veterans and young guns who are quickly making a name for themselves.
Ryan Getzlaf was back in his familiar role centering the top line. Getzlaf, who has combined for more points than any player on the Ducks the last three seasons, missed 14 games after getting struck in the forehead with a puck at Phoenix on Dec. 28, causing fractures to his nasal passages. Anaheim, fifth in the Western Conference heading into Tuesday, won 10 games while he was out and four straight since he has returned.
When he skates onto the ice Wednesday against visiting Washington, it will be his first home game since Dec. 12.
"It’s always nice to come home and be in a comfortable setting, in your own locker room and own building, in front of your own fans," Getzlaf said. "We have to use that to our advantage."
