Ducks-Red Wings Playoff History

Ducks vs. Red Wings: The Ducks and Red Wings will meet in the Western Conference Semifinals (schedule TBA). The Ducks and Wings are the two most successful teams in the NHL since the lockout (start of 2005-06 season). The clubs have each won one Stanley Cup, while leading the league in playoff rounds won (7) and appeared in (9). The two clubs have met four times in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, with each team winning twice. Detroit swept Anaheim in 1997 & 1999, while Anaheim beat Detroit in 2003 (sweep) and 2007 (six games).

Below is a year-by-year recap of the playoff history between the two clubs….

1997 Ducks vs. Red Wings Western Conference Semifinal Series
Anaheim was eliminated from the 1997 Playoffs by the eventual Stanley Cup champion Detroit Red Wings in the CQF, 4-0. The Mighty Ducks extended the Red Wings to overtime in three of those contests, including one double overtime game and one triple overtime game. Two of those overtime games came at Detroit. Guy Hebert and Mikhail Shtalenkov combined for a 2.45 GAA and .942 SV%. Only St. Louis had a better GAA (2.18) vs. Detroit in the postseason, while Anaheim was tops in save percentage vs. the Wings. The Mighty Ducks converted 36.4% of their power plays in the series – the highest vs. Detroit in the playoffs.

2003 Ducks vs. Red Wings Western Conference Quarterfinal Series
The Mighty Ducks became the first team to sweep the defending Stanley Cup champions in the first round in over 50 years, since the Red Wings swept Toronto in the 1952 playoffs…the Ducks won each of their first round games by a single goal, with two of the games needing overtime to be decided…the Ducks became just the second team in NHL history (1998-99 Dallas Stars) to win the first four games of a postseason all by one-goal margins…the club became just the fourth to sweep a best-of-seven series with each win by one goal, joining the 1998 Stars in the CSF; the 1992 Canadiens in the WCF and the 1967 Canadiens in the Stanley Cup Final…by sweeping his first best-of-seven series, J.S. Giguere joined just three other goalies (statistical research dates back to 1967-68) who have accomplished that feat…Tony Esposito of Chicago in 1969-70, Les Binkley of Pittsburgh in 1969-70 and Darcy Wakuluk of Dallas in 1993-94 were the only previous netminders to do it…Giguere had a 1.24 GAA (290 MIN, 6 GA) and .965 SV% (165-of-171) in the series…he stopped 63 shots in Anaheim's 2-1 overtime decision in Game 1 @ Detroit...the 63 saves were the most by an NHL goalie making his playoff debut.
