Ducks fly to Scandinavia
Selanne takes ice to thundering ovation
We're about to get underway here at Hartwall Areena. Jonas Hiller will be in net for the Ducks, and Kurtis Foster is dressed -- he was a question mark. When the Ducks took the ice before the start of the game, the three Finnish players were announced separately.

Toni Lydman is not playing, but was on the bench to receive an ovation. Saku Koivu was next and a loud roar came from the sellout crowd. Finally, it was time for Teemu Selanne -- and the ovation for the hometown hero was a thunderous one. He had to acknowledge the crowd on three occasions because the ovation went on for so long.

Selanne and fellow Jokerit legend Jari Kurri were presented with large "membership cards" -- the first of their kind for the club.
Quote of the Day

This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.

— Senators coach Dave Cameron after getting eliminated in the first round by the Canadiens
