First Star: Ryan Getzlaf, C (2 G, 7 SOG, 18:20 TOI)

Though he may not have been the best player for the Ducks tonight, the captain was the most impactful. He, too, was everywhere on the ice and making plays happen. This was a game that could have easily been lost by the Ducks, yet Getzlaf made sure the Ducks stayed in it, and his goal in the final minute was a testament to why he is the captain of this team. The Ducks needed their leader to show up, and he did, and that’s a major reason why the Ducks earned two points tonight.
