WINNIPEG –- The Anaheim Ducks are playing a dangerous game and they know it.
The Ducks are ahead 3-0 in their best-of-7 Western Conference First Round series against the Winnipeg Jets despite trailing in the third period of each game.
The fact the Ducks have been able to come back in the third period should come as no surprise considering they were the best team in the NHL when it came to winning games they trailed after two periods. They won 12 of those 35 games in the regular season, a winning percentage of .343, considerably higher than the League average of .206. But even then, the odds were against the Ducks winning those games.
They've won three in a row against the Jets, but Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau knows this is not a trend that can continue, especially not Wednesday when they try to close out the series at MTS Centre in Game 4 (9:30 p.m. ET; USA, SN, TVA Sports, FS-W).
