One of the interesting things here is how Bryan Murray used the Corvo-Pressing pairing, keeping them away from Selanne-McDonald at all costs but allowing them to pick up big minutes against Penner-Getzlaf-Perry.

Selanne, meanwhile, had more than 60 per cent of his minutes against Volchenkov-Phillips even though we heard all about how that pairing would get the Getzlaf duty.

The Ducks checking line, meanwhile, got most of their time against Redden-Meszaros, something that may change if Moen-Pahlsson-Niedermayer continue to pot goals the way they have been.
