Anaheim's ability to overcome deficits during this postseason run is remarkable. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, of the 14 multi-goal comeback victories this postseason, four have been from the Ducks, marking the sixth time in NHL history a team has earned at least four such victories in a single postseason.

...

Furthermore, with their victory two nights ago, the Ducks overcame a deficit (of any margin) to win for the sixth time this postseason. Per Elias, Anaheim overcame a multi-goal deficit to win only four times during the regular season.

 

"We have that confidence in our room that we're going to keep that same mentality," Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf said to reporters after Game 2. "We talk about it all the time that if we keep doing the same things, we're going to get rewarded. At times, it's easier said than done, but we have a belief. We've done it in the past, so you look back on those moments and it helps keeps the group calm."

Time to bum-rush Rinne. Make him think about something different, and get all their snowflake up.

If you're going to take a penalty, get your money's worth. Put Neal's nose into the glass, put Rinne under several bodies in the crease, send the #BigSwan76 to the training room, really give crybaby Johansson something to pull out of his ass on the bench. Give Laviolette something to launch into outer space about.

Score early, score often. Rah rah, sis boom bah.

Shoot high and in the corners. Run Rinne, get into his head. Hit, hit, hit and hit. 

 

DONT SUCK IN THE 1ST PERIOD!

 

You're close to the end of the season, time to empty the tanks. None of this crap about revving up and reacting to their speed. Set the pace early and play with energy from puck drop.

Keep hammering their D.  They are a big part of their offense and their success, so f*** 'em up.

 

Josi, Subban, Ellis, Ekholm.  Dead men walkin'.

Yeah we were very lucky to not be fishing the puck out of our own net there.

Bogus call. On the replay Thompson did not contact him with his elbow at all.

Nice kill.

The ref was facing the other way, turned as he hit the glass and immediately raised the arm.  He didn't even see the hit

I agree. I hate it when the refs call what they "think" happened vs. what they actually "see" happened.

The NSH player ducked his head down and into the boards himself.

Vermette upset about losing the face off?  Perhaps what he was upset about was the butt-end to the back of his helmet...

I agree, but they CAN'T continue to allow a forward to stand in the crease taking whacks at the puck with 4 Ducks standing there swatting at the puck, nobody taking the body tho

With the only exception being we got badly outshot in the 2nd half of the period and our FO % wasn't that great.

Also given our games 1 and 2 first period starts, tonight was a great improvement.
