The Anaheim Ducks aren't just trying to get under the Nashville Predators' skin. They're digging in with the help of Ryan Kesler's face.
The Ducks arrived in Nashville the day after Predators forward Ryan Johansen expressed his displeasure with Kesler's needling as the two battled throughout Game 2 of the Western Conference Final. Kesler, for his part, is relishing the villain role.
Just to rub it in a little more, they taped flyers with Kesler's face on various spots around Bridgestone Arena.
Well, what's the playoffs if you can't have a little fun while trying to drive your opponent into a blind rage by putting your guy's face at every turn?
It's win at all costs, even if it's just a few dollars on photocopies and tape.
