Come on Schneider, shut these Ducks down! Hopefully Perry, Getzlaf keep it somewhat clean tonight. At least we get to see our future Canuck that will be playing with Kesler soon. Hint: Man with two first names.
This is a game where we're going to have to play tighter defensively and really use our speed to rush the puck in. Shoot whenever you get a chance because Hiller's been shakier than a someone with Parkinson's and he'll be easy to get rattled if they get at him early. Selanne is a tricky mother****er (who I love dearly) and seems to pick apart looser defensive systems like no one else.
I'm not too afraid of Getzlaf, he's been sensationally blase and lazy this year. I'd watch out for Ryan since he's got something to prove, and Perry as usual.
They have brutal defense, but they can easily put up 3/4/5 goals.
They are as bad as their record indicates; a horrendous defensive team that has limited goal scoring outside of their stars (who are struggling besides Selanne). With Koivu injured the Ducks' second line center is Bonino; either Henrik or Kesler is going to be getting mad soft match-ups all night.
AV and company can't underestimate the Ducks, their first line could single handedly tear us apart if we don't focus on them. the Nucks just need to play 100% like Anaheim is any other team and they should be fine.
