The big moments were never too big for the Anaheim Ducks in their playoff series win over the Calgary Flames.
When Calgary threatened to gain momentum, Anaheim's leadership and poise prevailed to carry the Ducks to a four-game sweep of the Flames in their best-of-seven Western Conference quarterfinal. Anaheim ousted Calgary with a 3-1 win Wednesday night.
"Any time you can put a team behind you, you definitely want to take advantage of it," Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf said.
The Ducks now have the luxury of rest and recovery ahead of their conference semifinal. They await the series winner between the Edmonton Oilers and San Jose Sharks tied at 2-2.
