Former coach Randy Carlyle had moved Ryan to the third line to try and generate offense. But Boudreau drew from his experience as Washington coach when he played Anaheim.
"All I know is that when we played against them, they were great," Boudreau said of the trio. "They were always dominant. That's my memory of them. We get them back playing like that, and they should be, again, as a good as any individual line in the League."
Boudreau also is quite familiar with Selanne, who scorched Washington with 2 goals and 2 assists Nov. 1.
"(I'll) tell him to do it every night," Boudreau said. "Usually you get a little slower when you get older, but he was fast that night and Saku (Koivu) looked great that night, too. Let's hope that they can continue that."
Here's a look at how the Ducks' lineup could shape up tonight.
