Ducks make an opening statement, defeat Dallas Stars, 4-3

The Ducks uncorked the nearly yearlong energy that had been bottled up in their bid to atone for last year’s first-round playoff elimination.

And when they needed one last surge to stave off a furious Dallas Stars rally Wednesday at Honda Center, they delivered again, winning, 4-3, in Game 1 of the Western Conference quarterfinals.

“We got up 4-0, relaxed, and that team showed us we can’t do that,” Ducks defenseman Ben Lovejoy said. “Great lesson — made even better because we still won.”
