Veteran Teemu Selanne was a surprisingly physical force in Game 1.

Not only did the 43-year-old score, he hit Los Angeles defenseman Robyn Regehr twice and Regehr was unable to return to the game after the halfway mark of the first period. "I think the last two games, he's been really good," coach Bruce Boudreau said. "He's found a little bit of a fountain of youth. He's hitting guys, which isn't really his game, but is committed to the cause." Selanne's goal was his first of the post-season and he now has four points in six games.

Teemu Selanne was the Ducks' best skater in Saturday night's 3-2 overtime loss to the Kings.

He was dangerous on every one of his 26 shifts and scored one of Anaheim's two goals. For his efforts, Selanne was selected as the game's second star. Of the 43-year-old winger limemate Andrew Cogliano had this to say: "I thought he was very intense. I thought he was good on the forecheck. He scores timely goals. That was another one. It's too bad it didn't hold up." Will Selanne ever get old?

Teemu Selanne had two assists Sunday after being a healthy scratch in Game 4.

Selanne set up the first two goals for the Ducks as he finished the series with three assists in five games. He also had five shots on goal as he played like the Selanne of old. Teammate Corey Perry compared his play to youngsters Rickard Rakell and Devante Smith-Pelly who were big parts of the Ducks win. "Kids don't know any better right?" Perry said. "They go out and they play. I guess the old guys don't know any better either. 'T' had one of the best games I've seen him play in a long time. He made a great play on the first two goals. He had a lot of ice tonight. That's what I like to see." This is Selanne's last season in the NHL and it sure would be nice if he was able to go out with his name on the Stanley Cup once again.

Teemu Selanne might end up spending Game 4 in the press box.

Selanne has played less in each playoff contest thus far and was on the ice for just two shifts in the third period of the Stars' 3-0 win over Anaheim in Game 3. Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau was asked if he needs to see more from Selanne, who has an assist and a minus-one rating in three games. "You'd like to think. Right now, there's a lot of bumps and bruises on guys," Boudreau said. "I don't know who's playing, who's not."
