OT anguish fuels Teemu, Ducks

  • Print

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- No one felt the sting of the Anaheim Ducks' Game 1 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Kings more painfully than Teemu Selanne.

Anaheim's retiring No. 8 scored the go-ahead goal eight minutes and eight seconds into the third period. It was his 43rd career playoff goal, and it came at age 43.

Yet, seven seconds from providing Saturday night's defining play, Selanne joined his teammates in the horror of watching Marian Gaborik score the tying goal. Gaborik then won it for the visitors in overtime.

Losses like that break a team.

But Selanne and the Ducks have proved themselves a resilient bunch, their 28 comeback victories this season and franchise-record victories on the road helping, they said Sunday, to set aside any sense of doom after all that escaped them Saturday night.

"That was the story last night," Selanne said after a team meeting at their Anaheim practice facility with Game 2 tonight at Honda Center. "Now, it's a new opportunity... I have a good feeling about this.

"We'll keep pounding, that's how we've been winning, that's our plan... Let's enjoy it."
