That just isn't true, and this is coming from an Anaheim fan. If any team dominated that series it was Detroit. They sent wave after wave into the Anaheim zone, and the Ducks were often back on their heels. Anaheim got out of that series because of some opportunistic scoring, smart defense, but mostly because Giguere was extraordinary between the pipes. If Giguere had been anything less than what he was, the team that was swept would have been Anaheim.
Anaheim was outmatched by Detroit in every area save one.
