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

When somebody goes out and is there to score goals, but is also there to make some big hits, fight, do all of those things, and he has a great mustache, it was great to see him get that hit and get everybody going.
