The Score: Corey Perry has passed former Anaheim Ducks teammate Teemu Selanne for second in Ducks all-time postseason scoring with a goal in Game 3 of Anaheim’s second-round series against the Calgary Flames. The goal gave Perry 70 career playoff points. Captain Ryan Getzlaf leads the Ducks in post season scoring with 86 playoff points.
Sportsnet: Detroit Red Wings senior vice president Jim Devellano offered some strong criticism of 2013 first-round (20th overall) draft choice Anthony Mantha. The Red Wings reportedly pulled out of trade talks regarding defenceman Dion Phaneuf after the Toronto Maple Leafs asked for Mantha to be included in a potential deal.
“Very, very, very disappointing,” said Devellano regarding Mantha’s play. “And I say that with a lot of sadness. Coming out of junior, we had such high hopes for him.”
The Toronto Star: The Calgary Flames sacrificed a year of Sam Bennett’s contract to keep him in the post-season lineup. Bennett has three goals through Calgary’s first eight playoff games, tying him with Jiri Hudler for the team lead.
“It’s definitely a pretty amazing experience for me,” Bennett said. “I’ve had enough games now. I feel completely comfortable. I’m just worried about playing my game, doing whatever I can to help this team win.
