For additional insight into the Western Conference Second Round series between the Anaheim Ducks and Calgary Flames, NHL.com has enlisted the help of Frederic Chabot to break down the action. Chabot will be checking in throughout the series.
Chabot was the goaltending coach for the Edmonton Oilers from 2009 to 2014. He played in the NHL for five seasons, spending time with the Montreal Canadiens, Philadelphia Flyers and the Los Angeles Kings.
When the Anaheim Ducks were at their best during their Western Conference First Round series against the Winnipeg Jets, forwards Ryan Getzlaf and Cory Perry were leading the way. Anaheim's depth also was productive and problematic for the Jets' bottom-six forwards, and the result was a four-game sweep for the Ducks.
"Perry and Getzlaf really set the tone and showed the way in the first game," Chabot said. "You can expect the rest of the crew to follow suit in the next games."
