Here is the 2016 Anaheim Ducks Qualifying Tournament in its entirety.

The 3rd-seeded ’12-’13 Anaheim Ducks took the first two games of this qualifier final before the 4th-seeded ’05-’06 Mighty Ducks of Anaheim took the next four to win it all. The ’12-’13 Ducks also won those first two games in overtime, but they led late in the third before Joffrey Lupul tied it for the ’05-’06 Mighty Ducks. Then, Teemu Selanne scored four and a half minutes into OT to give the ’12-’13 Ducks a 1-0 series lead. Saku Koivu scored the game-winner in OT for the ’12-’13 Ducks in Game 2 as they took a 2-0 series lead. Despite losing the two games, Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped a combined 87 shots, but his efforts would be rewarded later in the series. The ’05-’06 Mighty Ducks got on the board in the series with a 3-1 win in Game 3 behind a two-goal showing from Lupul. Jiggy stopped 34 of 35 shots in the win while Jonas Hiller stopped 37 of 40 in the loss.

The ’05-’06 Mighty Ducks led 2-1 late in Game 4 as the ’12-’13 Ducks pulled Hiller for the extra attacker. With 27 seconds remaining, Matthew Lombardi tied it for the ’12-’13 Ducks forcing the third overtime game of this series. For the second time, it would be Selanne who won it, but this time for the ’05-’06 Mighty Ducks on double overtime to tie the series at two. Giguere and Hiller starred yet again as they posted 59 and 61 saves, respectively. The ’05-’06 Mighty Ducks then took a 3-2 series lead with a 4-2 win in Game 5 behind a hat trick from Todd Marchant. Marchant then was one of four different scorers for the ’05-’06 Mighty Ducks in the first period of Game 6 alone. They led 4-1 after the first period and held on to seal the series with a 5-3 win. Lupul and Rob Niedermayer both posted three-point performances in the series-clinching win for the ’05-’06 Mighty Ducks.
