Fans can watch the Anaheim Ducks vs. Dallas Stars Game 2 live online and see if the top seed in the Western Conference can take control over the series.
The Ducks handled the Stars in Game 1, winning 4-3, but also lost captain Ryan Getzlaf when he took a puck to the face in the final minute. Despite the ugly injury, Getzlaf said the day after the game that he plans to play in Friday’s Game 2.
“Luckily, he’s married, has a couple of kids,” Anaheim defenseman Ben Lovejoy said. “He’s not trying to impress anybody with his face.”
Fans who want to watch the Anaheim Ducks vs. Dallas Stars can tune at 10 pm ET in to NBC Sports, which is also offering streaming video of the game online.
The return of Getzlaf could be a boost to the Ducks, who are looking to head to Dallas with a 2-0 stranglehold on the series.
“That’s why he is who he is,” said coach Bruce Boudreau. “That’s why he’s won two gold medals and a Stanley Cup and he’s not 30. He learned from the Scotty Niedermayers and the Chris Prongers that were here before him, too. He’s a battler and a gamer. It won’t look too pretty, but he’s going to be playing.”
But the Stars are not looking to roll over, and on Thursday coach Lindy Ruff led the team in the longest film session of the season to find out what went wrong.
“It’s my job to get them in the right place, and they weren’t in quite the right place yesterday,” Ruff said.
Fans who watch the Ducks vs. Stars game live online will likely see the return of rookie goaltender Frederik Andersen, who stopped 32 shots in his NHL playoff debut for the Ducks. Boudreau indicated that Andersen will likely get the nod over veteran Jonas Hiller.
