Seven Ducks-Red Wings Game 7 subplots.

1. If they win, this could go down as the best playoff performance in Ducks franchise history.

2. Kris Draper might play.

3. The Ducks aren’t sure why Todd Marchant got a game misconduct in this brawl at the end of Game 6. The Red Wings have moved onbut haven’t forgotten.

4. Speaking of Marchant, he wants to play until he’s 47 like Chris Chelios.

5. Detroit wants to hate Jonas Hiller, but can’t. He and Ryan Getzlaf are the reasons the Ducks are in Game 7 at all.

6. Chris Osgood is impressed with ex-teammate Chris Pronger’s behavior so far.

7. When the series started I picked the Red Wings in seven games. If the Ducks win tonight (4 p.m., FSN Prime Ticket), I will approve any and all “I-told-you-so” comments.
