It might require 469 miles of stopping distance, which is the interval between New Orleans and Atlanta’s Super Bowl site. But it’s there, in a way it wasn’t there on the first Sunday in November, when...

Ducks right wing Patrick Eaves making strides in return from broken rib

WINNIPEG, Manitoba — Patrick Eaves didn’t make the trip with his Ducks teammates. But it would seem to be only a matter of time before he’s sound enough to play again.
