Ducks Say They Won’t Take Another Night Off After Game 1 Debacle

ANAHEIM (AP) — After the Anaheim Ducks went on a frantic six-week sprint just to make the postseason, Teemu Selanne thinks it’s understandable they couldn’t maintain that breakneck pace going into their playoff opener.

The Finnish Flash just wants to make sure the Ducks don’t take another night off in Game 2 against the Nashville Predators.

The Ducks acknowledge they were outworked in Wednesday’s 4-1 loss to Nashville, and goalie Pekka Rinne was exactly the nightmare Anaheim anticipated.

But Selanne and his high-scoring Ducks aren’t out of tricks yet.

With a commitment to steady work, they think they can even the first-round series Friday night.

Nashville coach Barry Trotz couldn’t find much to criticize about his team’s opening effort.
