"That was us," Ducks forward Corey Perry said of the three-goal, third-period binge that answered a Nashville Predators tying goal near the start of the period. "We didn't sit back and wait. We kept going at 'em. " That style defined the Ducks in their sprint to the NHL's best record (41-14-5)

Turns out the surf wasn't the only thing up in Huntington Beach on Sunday. First, the city hosted the U.S. Open of Surfing. Then, it hosted the U.S. Open of Rioting . And on Monday morning, it was hosting the U.S. Open of Cleaning Up. Gee, Gidget, bet you didn't see this coming! Mix hundreds of young people, alcohol, an all-day event and what do you get? Tequila Uprising. Sadly, though, this type of incident is all too common in today's sporting world. Rioting is now as much a part of championship celebrations as the parade.
