DALLAS (AP) - Andrew Cogliano and the Anaheim Ducks are in the same position as a year ago.
Now they just need a different result to avoid another long offseason of disbelief.
The top-seeded Ducks return to Dallas for Game 6 against the Stars on Sunday night with a chance to advance past the opening round of the playoffs for only the second time since winning their lone Stanley Cup title seven years ago.
With the same 3-2 series lead and home-ice advantage last season, favored Anaheim failed to close out Detroit.
