Andy McDonald started the scoring in the series, giving the top-seeded ’06-’07 Ducks a 1-0 lead early in the second period of Game 1.

McDonald scored his second of the game early in the third to give the ’06-’07 Ducks a 2-1 lead and then almost three minutes later, Rob Niedermayer surprisingly scored a PP goal to make it a 3-1 lead. The ’12-’13 Ducks got one back, another goal from Getzlaf, but the top seed held on for a 3-2 win. The ’06-’07 Ducks dominated the next game to take a 2-0 series win as a goal and an assist from defenseman Scott Niedermayer led offensively while goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped 36 of 37 shots against. The ’12-’13 Ducks held a 1-0 lead for about 50 minutes of game time before Teemu Selanne tied the game for the ’06-’07 Ducks in the third period, which eventually forced overtime. The next goal didn’t come for another 24+ minutes as Bobby Ryan scored the OT winner 34 seconds into the second overtime for the ’12-’13 Ducks. Then, on the back of four goals in the first period, the ’06-’07 Ducks took Game 4 by a final of 6-4. Both (Scott) Niedermayer and Selanne posted a goal and three assists to lead them to a 3-1 series lead. The top speed then finished off the ’12-’13 Ducks with a 4-1 win in Game 5 with Travis Moen‘s two goals leading the way.
