    ANAHEIM — The Ducks went back to the business of playing hockey Thursday morning.
    It wasn’t easy.
    How could it be?
    The Ducks reconvened for the first time since Jay Bouwmeester of the St. Louis Blues suffered a cardiac episode while seated on the visiting team’s bench during a television timeout with 7:50 remaining in the first period of Tuesday’s game at Honda Center.
