Ryan Getzlaf Is Dominating On The Ice

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,

The Ducks captain was total calm under fire, cruising around the ice with that six-foot-four, 220-pound frame, playing keep-away as the series is now tied 2-2. It was the fourth road win of the playoffs for the Ducks, who also won two in their sweep of the Calgary Flames in Round 1.

Getzlaf has eight points in the four games against the Oilers and 13 (seven goals) in the eight Ducks’ games this spring. But, guys get the C for two reasons, leadership and leadership.

“When he goes like that we have no choice. We have to follow suit to compete like he does. And when he’s leading the charge, when he goes like that, I don’t know if you can stop him because he’s so big and so poised with the puck and makes those plays,” said Ducks winger Andrew Cogliano. “I don’t even know how to describe tonight. He was absolutely phenomenal, he won us the game.

“He should be getting some serious praise. He’s been the difference in this series for us.”
