1* Free Play Ducks.I had a big play on the Blackhawks in Game 4 and obviously feel pretty good about the win after Chicago fell apart late to let the Ducks back into it. Anaheim would take a 4-3 lead late in the third period with the second-fastest three goals in Stanley Cup Playoff history: "If you look at all four games [in this series] they've been all tremendous hockey games," Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau said afterwards. "One has to lose, one has to win. Usually when one of the teams makes a mistake, a good team capitalizes on it. That's what happened. We had our chances again to win it, but it didn't happen. So we'll just regroup. Now it's a 2-out-of-3. Let's go after it." As Boudreau said, this has turned into a three-game series and remember, after the Blackhawks won 3-2 in Game 2 at the Honda Center, Anaheim would respond with a 2-1 win in Game 3: "I think we're right there," Cogliano said. "I don't think they overwhelmed us with too much. I thought we had our looks. They had the more power plays and they converted at the end of the game to tie it up. To score three goals when you're down 3-1 speaks to the team, and there is no hanging our heads. Obviously it is a bad feeling, but we've got to battle back." Note that Anaheim has been money in the bank in this spot all year as well, 25-9 (+13.2 units) after scoring four goals or more in its previous game, 19-9 (+9.3 units) after allowing four goals or more and 5-2 (+2.7 units) in its last seven when tied in a playoff series. The price is right, consider a second look at the DUCKS in Game 5.AAA Sports
