Numbers for Nerds

Ryan Getzlaf’s two-goal night on Wednesday moved him into first place for playoff goals in Anaheim Ducks history, passing the great Teemu Selanne. While still trailing Selanne in all-time playoff goals by eight, Getzlaf is now tied with Justin Williams of the Washington Capitals and Craig Simpson for 116th in all-time playoffs goals.
