The Malik Report

Ducks Today

from AJ Manderichio of AnaheimDucks.com,

“When you’re a kid, you have dreams that you’re playing Game 7 of the Stanley Cup playoffs,” Corey Perry said. “That’s the fun part of the hockey. You dream about Game 7s and to be that one guy to step up [and win one] is pretty special.”

“You don’t get many opportunities like this,” Cam Fowler said. “You try and cherish that moment and you look forward to it. It’s another game of hockey, but the stakes are raised a little bit.

“I’m looking forward to it. No butterflies, just excitement.”

Bruce Boudreau has both played and coached in Game 7, and believes playing carries less pressure.

The Ducks seem to be very much in denial, at least publicly.

Or maybe denial isn’t right.  I just find it very bizarre that a #2 seed has what seems to be a “Just happy to be here” vibe in the first round of the playoffs.

Boudreau commented a couple times this week how his players made a play out of “panic” or didn’t want to be on the ice.  I thought he was supposed to be a player’s coach when he replaced Carlyle?  If so, the comments make me think either something is really wrong in their locker room or how they interact with the coach?

Ahh, we can only hope…

When you’re a kid, you have dreams of becoming one of the biggest douchebag pricks in the NHL. And now I’ve made it,” Corey Perry said.

There. Fixed.
