“No shootouts, right?” Selanne said, smiling.
Ding-ding!The Ducks were 4-10 in shootouts in the regular season, probably the only thing that prevented them from skating off with the Presidents Trophy for best overall record in the NHL.
Their second weakness was a little more subtle — playing down to the level of their competition, as they did on several occasions during the best season in franchise history.
That, however, can’t happen anymore.
“Exactly,” Selanne said after Monday’s practice at Honda Center. “There are seven teams with over 100 points in our conference, so there are no easy games anymore.”
