from Craig Custance of The Sporting News (Sunday edition),
In Game 1 against the Red Wings, Hiller made 34 saves against the high-charged Detroit offense but left the arena feeling like the Ducks missed an opportunity to beat the Red Wings.
He got a taste of what the series will be like: plenty of bodies in front of him, namely Tomas Holmstrom, and shooters with pinpoint accuracy.
“They’re good players, but it’s not much different than the series against San Jose,” Hiller told reporters after the game. “I’ll have to do a better job next time.”
Don’t be surprised if he does a better job today. After all, he has done it before.
much more on Hiller…
added 10:10pm, from Helene Elliott of the LA Times (Sunday edition),
Saturday came and went and the NHL didn’t suspend Ducks forward Mike Brown, known in Hockeytown as The Baddest Man On Skates, for his hard hit on Detroit’s Jiri Hudler during the Red Wings’ 3-2 victory in the opener of the teams’ second-round playoff series.
Now, maybe they can get back to playing hockey today at Joe Louis Arena instead of playing victim and maligned villain.
