Ducks lead 2-0

With tonight’s win, the Ducks are 60-47 all-time in the postseason and 36-20 at home. They lead the all-time playoff series against the Stars, 8-6.

Dating back to the regular season, the Ducks have won six consecutive games (four regular season plus two playoff games).

Ryan Getzlaf scored his second goal of the postseason (1-1=2). Dating back to last postseason, he has points in his last three playoff games (2-3=5). Tonight marked his second consecutive multi-point game. The last time he accomplished this feat was May 1-3, 2009 (1-4=5).

Andrew Cogliano scored a SHG, his first career playoff goal and the first SHG scored by the Ducks since May. 4, 2013 @ DET (Getzlaf).

Through the first two games of his postseason career, Frederik Andersen has posted a 2-0 record with a .930 SV% (66 SV/71 SA) and a 2.50 GAA (5 GA/ 120 MIN).

Tonight’s attendance was 17,426, a sellout including standing room only. Tonight marks Anaheim’s 14th consecutive sellout, continuing their longest streak of the season (previously six, Dec. 28-Jan. 12).

POSTGAME QUOTES

ANAHEIM DUCKS

Corey Perry
On tonight’s game

They were skating and hitting. They played well tonight. We weathered the storm and came away 1-1 after the first. That’s what we wanted to do.

On Getzlaf’s goal at the end of the first period
That was huge. What a great play by him stealing the puck and being a beast going to the net. That’s the type of player he is, and he showed us what he can do.

Andrew Cogliano
On his shorthanded goal

Getzy [Ryan Getzlaf] made a great play, and I was able to put it upstairs. It’s probably one of the biggest goals of my career. He made a great play, and it ended up being the game-winner. It was nice.

Ryan Getzlaf
On focusing on the game, not his jaw

Once I went through the warmup and those types of things, I got my feet under me. I got a hit in on my first shift which helps gets the nerves out.

On his goal
We didn’t start the way we wanted to in the first 10 minutes. We let them come at us, and you can’t do that in playoff hockey. We weathered the storm and got going after that.

Head Coach Bruce Boudreau
On Getzlaf and Perry stepping up

Every once in a while, you need your best players to step it up when the rest of the guys lose their composure. Getzy, with what’s happened to him in the last three days, to come in and get two points and a plus-3 rating, is a sure reason why he’s hopefully nominated for the MVP.

On Cogliano
In a lot of games, we bend, but we don’t break. You see the sacrifices going on at the end. As many mistakes as we were making, we were blocking shots and getting in the lanes, and doing the things necessary to win. And the goalie makes a big save at the end.

DALLAS STARS

Sergei Gonchar
On tonight's game

Obviously losing two (games), nobody is happy about it. At the same time, it is a seven-game series. I think we are playing better. We had a good chance to tie this game. I think the referee missed that penalty, on me, behind the net. In my opinion we should have been 5-on-3. Those mistakes happen on their side, too. We have to keep focused and make sure we are playing the same way we’ve been playing in the third period.

On the start
I think we started better, definitely. But it doesn’t matter. We have to make sure to keep playing like this. All game, 60 minutes is what counts. I think we have to be consistent with that, through 60 minutes.

Ryan Garbutt
On the series

It’s hockey. Every game is important from here on out. If we take care of business at home, we are going to be fine.

On tonight's game
I thought we played hard. We got a lot of pucks on net. Next game we just got to make sure we bury a few more.

On Honda Center
It is a tough building to play in regardless of being playoffs or not. I think we played hard and learned a lot here. It is going to be paramount, going back home that we play even better.

Head coach Lindy Ruff
On tonight's game

At the end of the night, we handed them their opportunities and their goals. We skated well, the effort was great but we made a couple mistakes that cost us.

On the playoffs
Part of becoming a good playoff team is to improve from the first game and I saw the improvement. We made some individual mistakes that we are going to have to try and eliminate. They made some big mistakes, too. We didn’t capitalize on some of their big mistakes, which was the difference. But I actually like where our team was at, the pressure they were putting on. There was a lot to like. We missed the net on a couple big mistakes and you got to give them credit. We handed them a couple. They didn’t have a lot but what we handed them, they took advantage of.
