SPEAKING
``Our guys got really fired up by everything that was said about the big, bad Ducks and how they were going to stomp all over us, and nobody gave us a chance because we had a depleted lineup. Nobody gave us a chance before the series started and nobody gave us a chance after the first game.'' - Vancouver coach Alain Vigneault on splitting the first two games of its semifinal series with Anaheim.
