DENVER - The worst game the Ducks played this season before Wednesday was here in their opener, a 6-1 loss capped by Colorado Avalanche rookie Coach Patrick Roy threatening to break through a glass partition to fight Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau. That image has lasted longer than what happened afterward: the Ducks embarking on a seven-game win streak and a 15-2-1 roll. Back in Pepsi Center on Thursday, the Ducks (43-16-7) went through perhaps their most spirited, contact-filled practice of the season, a night removed from their horrific showing in a 7-2 loss at woeful Calgary.

When: Noon. Where: StubHub Center. On the air: TV: Unimas; Radio: 1330. Records (2013): Chivas USA 6-20-8, Fire 14-13-7. Record vs. Fire (2013): 1-0. Update: Chivas USA goes into a new season with new owners, new hope and 12 new players. All that translated into an unbeaten preseason but the team starts with a clean slate Sunday against a Chicago Fire squad that just missed the playoffs last fall. Sunday's game will mark a homecoming of sorts for the Fire's Mike Magee, the reigning MLS MVP and a longtime fan favorite with the Galaxy who hasn't played here since being traded to Chicago 10 months ago. Magee is likely to play some minutes but he may not start Sunday.

The Victorian-era detectives of "Ripper Street" have been granted a stay of execution, thanks to Amazon, which ordered a third season of the BBC series that had been canceled last year. The online retail giant announced the new eight-episode season as part of the launch of its Amazon Prime Streaming Video service in the United Kingdom. The third season will stream on Amazon in the United Kingdom before it airs on BBC One, where the first two seasons aired. BBC America, a co-producer of the series, will air the new season after it has aired in the United Kingdom on BBC One. Currently, Amazon does not have streaming rights for the show in the United States.

As the Cactus League opens for play Wednesday, the most immediate story line is not difficult to determine: Is there really a rivalry between the Dodgers and the Arizona Diamondbacks? The Dodgers won the National League West. The Diamondbacks complained when the Dodgers jumped into the Chase Field pool to celebrate the division title, then mocked them for sending A.J. Ellis to Australia to promote the season opener rather than, say, Clayton Kershaw. The Dodgers and Diamondbacks face each other Wednesday and Thursday, then once more in Arizona, then twice in Sydney, in the opening series down under.
