One More Crack At It

If the Ducks defeat the Flames, the top 4 seeds in the West would have lost in the 1st round. Who would have predicted that! from Helene Elliot of the LA Times,
The Mighty Ducks beat the Calgary Flames at the game the Canadian team prides itself on having mastered, a blend of grit and muscle and, when nothing else works, the sheer will to prevail. And because they did, the Ducks earned the right to try and do it again Wednesday and part the sea of red at Calgary's Pengrowth Saddledome. The Ducks face the prospect of raising their game to this level or higher. Neither team has won two straight games in this series, and the Flames will be able to draw upon the energy of a roaring crowd. Asked whether the Ducks' performance Monday had been their best game of the series, Niedermayer refused to be caught up in the euphoria of the moment or resort to superlatives. "I think we played well. We had to," he said. "We had no choice. "And now, we have to do it again. All we got is another crack at it."
