|ANAHEIM: ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - That brand-new Pacific Division title banner in the Honda Center rafters is going to mock the Anaheim Ducks until they figure out how to back up their regular-season prowess with playoff success.
With Teemu Selanne back for one last run at the Stanley Cup, the Ducks are eager to extend the Finnish Flash's final season well into the summer.
Anaheim went back to training camp this month still smarting from its seven-game loss to Detroit in the first round of last season's playoffs. The Ducks have still only won one playoff round since claiming their only NHL title in 2007 - none since 2009.
The best regular-season winning percentage in franchise history led to another early summer, and coach Bruce Boudreau is confident the Ducks are done with first-round flops.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Like it or not, there is a new culture in Vancouver.
Whether the new atmosphere surrounding the Canucks leads the franchise to its long-awaited first Stanley Cup championship remains to be seen.
But coach John Tortorella is sure going to try.
Following five division championships, two Presidents trophies, for the league's most points, and a Stanley Cup finals appearance in seven years under Alain Vigneault, Vancouver brass determined the Canucks needed a tougher voice. So Vigneault, the franchise leader in wins, was fired May 22 and replaced by John Tortorella, himself fired by the New York Rangers May 29.
Tortorella comes with an edge - he can be hard on the media, and often calls out his players in press conferences - but he wins, and that's what Vancouver needs. He won a Stanley Cup in 2004 behind Tampa Bay's bench, and took the Rangers to the Eastern Conference finals in 2012.
|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ PA SPORTSTICKER HOCKEY PREVIEW (ANAHEIM-VANCOUVER) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ |
*Ducks-Canucks Preview* =======================
Anaheim (47-18-8) at Vancouver (34-30-11), 10:00 p.m. EDT
The Anaheim Ducks can match a franchise record for victories Saturday night.
They set a different franchise mark the last time they saw the Vancouver Canucks, who turned to some bush-league antics near the end of a humiliating defeat.
The visiting Ducks have won all three matchups this season with the Canucks, who again may be without leading scorer Henrik Sedin.
Anaheim (47-18-8) last won 48 games in 2006-07 when it finished with a team-record 110 points and won the franchise's lone Stanley Cup. The Ducks are one point behind San Jose in the Pacific Division, with the Sharks playing Saturday afternoon in Colorado.
These teams last met Jan. 15. Anaheim set a club record with six power-play goals in a 9-1 rout that ended with Vancouver amassing 58 penalty minutes in the third period with several old-time-hockey attempts to start a brawl.
Tom Sestito is the only Canucks skater with two goals this season against the Ducks, but it's more notable that he finished with a game-high 22 penalty minutes in the last matchup. Sestito has an NHL-high 201 penalty minutes, and has been whistled for fighting penalties in each of Vancouver's last two games.
It's not clear if there is any bad blood remaining from the previous encounter. Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau didn't sound too upset afterward.
"There was a lot of frustration on their part," Boudreau said. "They just started punching our guys. It wasn't the brightest thing to do. What are the refs supposed to do? ... It was just an unfortunate game for Vancouver."
Trying to start a fight probably isn't bright for either team since the Canucks (34-30-11) are in a desperate situation as they trail Phoenix by five points for the Western Conference's final wild-card spot.
"Obviously we're chasing teams, that's no secret, we're on the outside looking in," winger Zack Kassian said. "But we believe, the 22 guys and management and the coaching staff, that we still have a chance."
Sedin, who has a team-high 46 points, has missed the last two games with a left leg injury suffered in Sunday's 4-2 win over Buffalo.
Anaheim has outscored Vancouver 16-5 in the season series, but this is the first meeting in Canada. Corey Perry has a team-high seven points versus the Canucks and Nick Bonino five.
The Ducks fell 4-3 in overtime at Edmonton on Friday despite a 51-23 advantage in shots.
"You have a chance to put these teams away and you don't, and when that happens, you're not going to get what you want," Boudreau told the Ducks' official website.
Vancouver had a three-game win streak snapped with Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to Colorado that capped a two-game trip that began with Wednesday's 5-2 win in Minnesota.
"We have to look at positives here," Kassian said. "We had a good road trip. We didn't come out with two points but we played hard tonight. Quick turnaround against a good team on Saturday and we need to keep pushing."
Canucks fans likely won't get a chance to see the retiring Teemu Selanne, who played Friday and has not dressed on back-to-back nights. Selanne is expected to play his final game in Vancouver when the Ducks return April 7.
