Don’t call it the freeway series.

The Ducks have extended a contest to name their rivalry with the Kings.

USC-UCLA is “The Cross-town Rivalry.”
Dodgers-Angels is “The Freeway Series.”
Kings-Ducks is ???

It’s worthy of a nickname, says Fox Sports, which is giving away tickets to all 6 Ducks-Kings games this season if you can come up with an appropriate nickname. This contest has been going on for a while, but they just extended it. Chances are if you’re reading this blog, you know more about the rivalry than I do. So go here: and name the rivalry. It makes it easier for us media-types to refer to in print.

My suggestions (I’m ineligible to win, so steal away):
The SoCal skate
The Ruckus for the Puckus
Thin Ice
The Frozen Pool Party
