DALLAS - Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf says it's obvious the Ducks have to compete "a little bit harder" against the Dallas Stars.
Getzlaf also talked about playing within the rules in Game 4 on Wednesday night in Dallas.
The Ducks clearly took exception to how the Stars came out in their first home playoff game in six years, especially how they confronted the Anaheim captain wearing a visor after taking a puck to the face in the series opener.
There were plenty of scrums and penalty minutes in Dallas' 3-0 win Monday night, including Getzlaf taking a punch to the head from Stars forward Antoine Roussel late in the second period.
Stars coach Lindy Ruff says he didn't see anything more than playoff hockey, and expects the best-of-seven series to get even more physical.
It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
