Ducks’ Getzlaf takes hard puck to the face against Stars

The Anaheim Ducks got a bit of a scare when the Dallas Stars came storming back from a 4-0 deficit on Wednesday.

But that wasn’t the biggest concern in the final minute of Game 1.

Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf took a hard puck to the face from Stars’ Tyler Seguin with just 16 seconds remaining.

The Ducks held on for the 4-3 win to take a 1-0 series lead. And luckily for Anaheim, Getzlaf should be good to return for Game 2.
