Anaheim Ducks Ryan Getzlaf said after his team beat the Chicago Blackhawks, "I think anytime when you talk about winning a series, you're going to want to play your game. We can't play a run-and-gun game. We're not a team that's built to skate up and down the rink all night long and trade chances. We're just not built that way. We have to be able to execute our system and the things we want to do."
The Ducks are a big team and likes to play physically, as well as equipped with enough speed to create problems off the rush and slow down their opponents. Getzlaf continued, "We've been doing a good job of that so far. There's been points throughout games where they've hemmed us in, [and] got to their cycle game a little bit more, but, you know, those are points that we have to address and keep doing what we're doing going forward."
