* The Anaheim Ducks (idle) would clinch a berth in the Stanley Cup Playoffs if the Rangers defeat the Coyotes in regulation OR if the Jets defeat the Stars in regulation OR if both the Coyotes and Stars lose in overtime or a shootout.
It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
