Edmonton jumped on the Ducks early, going up 2-0, and up 2-0 with a chance to go up 3 games to 1, and then that series is probably over. Except Ryan Getzlaf didn’t get the memo and went hero, scoring two goals, assisting on two others and put the entire team on his back to get it back to Anaheim tied 2-2. Dude is a stud.
Which is why I didn’t panic when they lost the first two at home. Nor when they fell behind 2-0 last night, and not even when Edmonton tied it late to force overtime.
I was never concerned because I’ve never seen Getzlaf play like this; and because of it, I knew he wasn’t going to let them lose.
What’s better than Jakob Silfverberg banging in that game winner and seeing Wayne Gretzky drop that f bomb on camera right when it happened. I’ll tell you what’s better. Nothing.
I don’t root ever. For anyone. But I’m all in with these guys. Go Ducks!
