This is a column about two big deals in Southern California horse racing, the Santa Anita Handicap and Bobby Frankel. One will be run Saturday and the other is no longer with us. Neither will ever be forgettable. If it seems odd to talk about a live race via a dead man, then you don't understand the value horse racing puts on its legends and legacies. When Frankel died of cancer Nov. 16, 2009, at age 68, he had had hundreds of huge moments as a race trainer, including six Breeders' Cup victories, a Belmont Stakes win, five Eclipse Awards and a 1995 Hall of Fame induction.

Teemu, the facilitator? Teemu Selanne, with so many skills at his disposal, turned playmaker Friday night with a deft and dazzling performance at Honda Center. Selanne's three assists sparked the Ducks to a 3-1 victory against the Minnesota Wild. The newly formed combination — which had Bobby Ryan centering Kyle Palmieri and Selanne — was responsible for eight points. Ryan Getzlaf had the other, an assist on Ryan's power-play goal late in the third period. It was Selanne's first three-assist game in nearly two years.

The lockout helped bring the Kings and Ducks together in Southern California as they figured that it would be far more beneficial to join forces than to practice in two smaller groups. Nine time zones away, the same thing was happening on a much smaller scale. The modest town of Mora, Sweden, was treated to the sight of two talented forwards in their prime, Bobby Ryan of the Ducks and the Anze Kopitar of the Kings, playing on the same line. Seeing two NHL players who combined for 56 goals last season playing for a second-division Swedish outfit might be a once-in-a-generation thing.
