Special Video for the Ducks:
DUCKS WIN 5 - 2 !!!!! Dallas Leads Series 3 - 2.
Any real Ducks fan went into that game tonight KNOWING the Ducks would not go down so easily. If we go down, we're gonna go down the hardest way possible. Not Tonight! Ducks came out of the gates ready to go, got the first (seemingly most important) goal of the night, as most of you have witnessed by now the team who scores the first goal usually wins the game. I can't explain it, but that's how it's been happening. Ducks got it. Dallas fought hard, they tried. They came back at points, but it wasn't good enough. Ducks fought harder.... and the result is, they get to go back to Dallas for game 6... and God willing, come back to Anaheim for a crucial game 7. :)
GAME DAY QUOTES:
"I felt really good tonight," said an upbeat Giguere. "My job is just to try to give the team a chance to win. If I do that, I feel like we have the guys up front that can score some goals and we did that tonight. Dallas is a good team. It wasn’t always pretty, but we did the job and found a way to win.
"It was do or die and I wanted to leave it all on the table." -- Giguere
"I thought that was a pretty entertaining game, much better than the first two games we played here," Giguere said. "We probably owed one to our fans. Hopefully, they got their money’s worth tonight."
"I thought Giguere was the best player on the ice tonight," said Ducks coach Randy Carlyle.
"It certainly felt good," said O'Donnell, whose turnover in Game 4 led to a big Dallas goal. "Whether it’s good or bad, you don’t want to dwell on it for too long. You don’t want to get too high or too low. We’ll call it even these two games. I cost one, I got one, so we’ll go back for Game 6."
"We got here a little early today, and right from the start it was business as usual," Getzlaf said. "I think we knew what was in front of us. We had our backs against the wall tonight and faced elimination. The turnaround is tough on the legs, but it’s a lot easier on the heart. You learn to forget about those other ones really quick because we have a second chance right now."
"The biggest game of the year," Carlyle said, "is Sunday night.”
