Numbers for Nerds: 8:30pm - The local start time for this game. I don't know if I've ever heard of a scheduled local faceoff time that late. Puts an interesting strain on the Stars who will be playing far later than they're used to.

Team Playoff Records: Ducks 2-0, Stars 0-2

Team Leaders: Ducks: Points- Ryan Getzlaf (4), Francois Beauchemin, Corey Perry, Matt Beleskey (2); Goals- Ryan Getzlaf (2); Assists- Ryan Getzlaf, Francois Beauchemin (2); Time-on-ice- Cam Fowler (21:10), Francois Beauchemin (20:53), Ryan Getzlaf (20:15); Plus-minus- Ryan Getzlaf (+4), Corey Perry, Cam Fowler (+3).

Penalty Kill: Ducks: 9-of-11, 81.8% (7th of 16 in playoffs); Stars: 6-of-8, 75% (10th of 16 in playoffs)

Believe it or not, the Ducks are not the most penalized team in this playoffs so far. That "honor" goes to the Chicago Blackhawks in total penalty minutes (49) and number of times shorthanded (13).
