On Wednesday night, the NHL has three games on the schedule to get the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs underway. In the nightcap of the evening, the Dallas Stars will travel to the Honda Center to take on the Anaheim Ducks.
The Ducks should be the clear favorites in this series, but they will need to avoid being upset in the first round after putting together a great regular season.
For Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf, the team cannot get complacent and they will need to make sure they take care of business in the postseason.
“Nobody remembers the team that had the best regular season in franchise history,” Getzlaf said, via ESPN.com. “It’s all about winning in the playoffs. I’ve been here nine years, and the only year we ever talk about is the year we won the Cup.”
