Grand finale: Ducks get last chance to survive Red Wings in Game 7 on Sunday night

ANAHEIM, Calif. - A theatrical playoff series gets an appropriately grand finale when the Anaheim Ducks host the Detroit Red Wings in Game 7 on Sunday night.

After four overtime games, several clutch goals and plenty of wild momentum swings, the second-seeded Ducks have one last chance to finish off the resilient Red Wings.

Although Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau would rather be playing in a Game 7 than watching it from the bench, he hopes his players embrace their opportunity to create a post-season reputation that could last their lifetimes.

Detroit has stayed in this series with three overtime victories, including Game 6 on Friday night. Anaheim had to rally late just to force two of those overtimes.

When the clubs met in a Game 7 four years ago, Detroit won it at home.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
