DALLAS -- During the regular season, the Anaheim Ducks had the second-best road record in the NHL (25-12-4). And the Ducks, who lead their best-of-7 Western Conference First Round series against the Dallas Stars 2-0, want to carry that success away from Honda Center into the postseason.
Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau knows if the Ducks are to take a 3-0 series lead by winning Game 3 (9:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, RDS, TSN, KDOC, TXA 21) at American Airlines Center on Monday night, they will have to weather an early storm from what should be a fired-up Stars team playing its first home playoff game in six years.
"I think they're going to come out pretty hard. There's no doubt about that," Boudreau said. "We just got to play the way we're capable of playing. It's going to be a hostile environment for sure."
