The Anaheim Ducks managed to grind out a 2-1 win against the Los Angeles Kings in a game physical enough that you might call it black and … Dodger Blue.
No doubt, Bruce Boudreau was impressed with his team’s play and the highly contested matchup.
“I know every time we play this team, it’s a man’s game,” Boudreau said. “You better be prepared to hit, and be hit, because they’re so good.”
The Ducks coach notes that his team registered 48 hits, which he claims is a franchise record.
“That was a playoff hockey game,” Mark Fistric said.
This served as a preview for Saturday’s 2014 Stadium Series game between the two teams at Dodger Stadium. Let’s hope the two teams aren’t too bloated from this appetizer two nights from now, then.
