ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - The Los Angeles Kings have pushed another playoff opponent to the limit, and the Anaheim Ducks have one last chance to push back.
After two weeks of tight games, dramatic momentum swings and improbable heroes, the first postseason Freeway Faceoff will be decided in Game 7 at Honda Center on Friday night.
The Ducks have more at stake than extending beloved forward Teemu Selanne's career into the Western Conference finals against Chicago.
Coach Bruce Boudreau and the top-seeded Ducks had the best regular season in franchise history, but will have little to show for it without a win.
Los Angeles' postseason poise is undeniable. With a workmanlike victory in Game 6, the Kings improved to 6-1 in elimination games over the last two years since their 2012 Stanley Cup run.
