Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau was asked after the morning skate Wednesday if he believed the players relished another chance at facing the Kings in the playoffs. The Kings ousted the Ducks in the second round last spring and went on to win their second Stanley Cup championship in three seasons.
“We hope they don’t make it,” Boudreau said. “I mean, they’re a great team. They’re Stanley Cup champions. They’ve got that blood in them. Three years in a row they’ve been in the final four. Be careful what you wish for.”
