What’s the occasion: Red Wings play them in the first round of the playoffs.
How they fared this season: The Ducks won, 5-2, in Detroit in February, but the Wings won twice at Anaheim in March, beating the Ducks, 5-1, on a Friday night and 2-1 on a Sunday afternoon.
Who are some good Ducks: Ryan Getzlaf is big and strong and averages more than a point a game. Corey Perry has a nasty, physical side to him, but he’s also very dangerous with the puck. He likes to shoot. A lot. Teemu Selanne is 42 and fantastic. Incredibly skilled shooter. Bobby Ryan is a high-end young guy, a very good passer and capable goal scorer.
