After wrapping up their 4-0 Western Conference first-round win over the Flames, the Ducks face the victor of the series between the Edmonton Oilers and San Jose Sharks, who are tied 2-2, in the second round of the playoffs.
Selke "finalists" set • Anaheim Ducks center Ryan Kesler is one of the three top vote-getters for the Selke Trophy, awarded annually by the National Hockey League "to the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game".
