Having a 2-0 lead in the best-of-7 Western Conference First Round series certainly helps the Ducks appreciate the moment a little bit, but Game 3 on Monday (9 p.m. ET: NHLN-US, NBCSN [JIP], SN, TVA Sports, PRIME) will not be taken for granted, especially stepping into what will be an extremely hostile MTS Centre.
Still, the return of the Stanley Cup Playoffs to this city after a 19-year absence is special and the Ducks are looking forward to it.
"It's going to be awesome," Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf said. "This is what playoffs is all about when you get all the fans against you, all the fans chanting. It's a good time."
