Ryan Getzlaf was not at all happy with the way the Anaheim Ducks came out to play Game 7.

Game 7 against the Los Angeles Kings was a home game for the Ducks but they were totally outplayed by the Kings who scored three times in the first. "This whole thing, it's a bitter pill," Getzlaf said. "To come out and let them get that lead ... I lay a lot of that on our shoulders. Things that we need to do differently. Nerves got us a little bit. Pucks were bouncing around a little bit and they were capitalizing. When they come out with a 3-0 lead, you're probably not going to beat a team like the Kings." It was the second straight year that the Ducks lost a Game 7 at home. Changes will be made and most likely in goal where UFA to be, Jonas Hiller, is not expected to be re-signed.

Corey Perry assisted twice and picked up two penalty minutes. Sure, the Ducks pulled this one out to even the series, but after 11 shots in the first period, they managed three the rest of the way. That will not be a recipe for success the rest of the way.

But it's not all about me. I'm not going to go out and win Game 3 by myself, that's for sure. The story of our season has been our depth in our lineup, and we need everybody pushing from top to bottom, all the way through. We all need to be better." He has a team-leading 10 points in seven playoff games.
