ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - A theatrical playoff series gets an appropriately grand finale when the Anaheim Ducks host the Detroit Red Wings in Game 7 on Sunday night.
After four overtime games, several clutch goals and plenty of wild momentum swings, the second-seeded Ducks have one last chance to finish off the resilient Red Wings.
Although Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau would rather be playing in a Game 7 than watching it from the bench, he hopes his players embrace their opportunity to create a postseason reputation that could last their lifetimes.
Detroit has stayed in this series with three overtime victories, including Game 6 on Friday night. Anaheim had to rally late just to force two of those overtimes.
When the clubs met in a Game 7 four years ago, Detroit won it at home.
