Getzlaf picked up two assists -- one shorthanded -- and a power-play goal in Thursday's 4-2 playoff-opening win against the Jets.

He and Corey Perry really went to work in Winnipeg in the third period, flipping the script after entering the frame with a 2-1 deficit. Having ended the regular season with a two-point effort against Arizona, that's five points in the last two games for Getzlaf, who reached 70 points for the fifth time and now will look to help the Ducks make a deep playoff run.

Getzlaf collected a goal and an assist in Anaheim's win over Arizona on Saturday.

Getzlaf returned to the lineup after sitting out the Ducks' previous two games for rest purposes. As a result, he should be well-rested for the Ducks' first round playoff clash with the Winnipeg Jets. Getzlaf finished the season with 70 points in 77 games, the fifth time he has topped the 70-point plateau.

Getzlaf will play in Saturday's game against the Coyotes.

Fantasy owners were likely concerned about Getzlaf's availability for the regular-season finale after he was rested in the Ducks' previous two games, but it appears coach Bruce Boudreau wants to give his star one final tune-up before the postseason commences. With several playoff-bound teams resting their key players Saturday, Getzlaf may even be a more attractive option in daily leagues than normal due to the attrition of the player pool.

Getzlaf will sit out Wednesday's game against the Stars to rest, Lance Pugmire of the LA Times reports.

With the Ducks in good position to clinch the top seed in the Western Conference, Getzlaf will get another chance to rest up before the postseason. Rickard Rakell will center the Ducks' top line in Getzlaf's absence.

Getzlaf was absent from Wednesday's morning skate and could sit out the Ducks' game later in the evening against the Stars.

The Ducks haven't formally clinched the Western Conference's No. 1 seed just yet, but with a two-point cushion on the Blues and two games remaining against non-playoff teams in the Stars and Coyotes, it appears to be in the bag. As such, the team could opt to rest Getzlaf on Wednesday in preparation for the postseason, as they did in a game last Friday against the Avalanche. A decision on Getzlaf's lineup status likely won't be announced until pregame warmups at 10:00 ET, which may make it wise for those playing in daily leagues to take a look at other options. Rickard Rakell centered the top line in Getzlaf's place at morning skate.

Getzlaf (rest) will not play in Friday's game against the Avalanche, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

The Ducks will opt to give Getzlaf some rest on Friday, as they currently sit as the number one seed in the Western Conference. Getzlaf will almost certainly return to action Wednesday against the Stars.

Getzlaf assisted on Corey Perry's game-tying goal late in the third, then scored his 24th goal of the year in overtime to deliver a 3-2 victory over Boston on Thursday.

Outstanding work by Getzlaf, who'd collected a modest three points in his prior six games coming in. He's got practically no chance to finish with another season of point-per-game-plus production this year, but Getzlaf has nonetheless been a high-end fantasy asset who'll almost certainly clear 70 points for the fifth time in the last seven non-lockout-shortened seasons.

Getzlaf registered an assist in Sunday's 7-2 loss to the Rangers, giving him three points in his last four games.

That level of production isn't out of the ordinary for Getzlaf, as he's produced 66 points in 71 games on the campaign. However, Getzlaf has only put up a combined two shot attempts in three of those games, a trend that could raise some concern if it persists. Don't sound the alarm just yet -- especially while the assists continue to trickle in at a steady pace -- but it's something that bears monitoring.

Getzlaf tallied twice early in the first, but his team failed to get the win Wednesday in Calgary.

The goals helped Getzlaf reach 22 on the season, and end a four game pointless streak in the process. Look for Getzlaf to continue performing as the elite fantasy player that he is.

Getzlaf briefly left the game late in the third after blocking a shot with his left foot on Wednesday.

He returned shortly thereafter, but keep an eye on Getzlaf's status in the next few days to see if he'll be forced to miss any time. Getzlaf leads all NHL forwards with 81 blocked shots this season.
