ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Dan Ellis has worn both jerseys in Anaheim's burgeoning rivalry with Nashville over the past year, so the Ducks' new goalie knows exactly what to expect when his current and former employers meet in a first-round playoff series.

His Ducks are exciting, offensively brilliant, and on a serious roll. Ellis says Nashville is disciplined, defense-oriented - and very due for some playoff success.

The fifth-seeded Predators begin their sixth shot at the first playoff series victory in franchise history when they visit Honda Center on Wednesday night to take on the fourth-seeded Ducks, who streaked all the way to home-ice advantage with a 15-5-0 finish to the regular season.
