NOTES: The 38-year-old Bertuzzi missed nearly three months with back pain and nerve problems affecting his right leg, even forcing him to walk with a cane at times. ... The Ducks have won the series all nine times in club history after winning the first game. ... Babcock considered putting veteran Mikael Samuelsson back into the lineup, but held off. The member of the Triple Gold Club — an Olympic gold medal, a world championship and a Stanley Cup title — missed 41 games this season with injuries, but is healthy again.
