Ryan Getzlaf tallied two points to help the Ducks earn the top spot in the West, with a 2-1 win against the Coyotes on Saturday night.

Jakob Silfverberg got the other goal. Anaheim will play Winnipeg in the first round. The Ducks will have their hands full.

It looks like Ryan Getzlaf will be back in the Anaheim lineup on Saturday.

The center was given the last two games off to rest before the playoffs and with the Ducks schedule, it has meant that he has not played since April 1. It has been a good rest for Getzlaf but it's now back to work with the NHL playoffs starting on Friday. The Ducks dropped both contests with Getzlaf on the sidelines. "It was frustrating to watch," Getzlaf said. "Any time you’re out of the lineup and the team is struggling, it’s a hard thing for me to watch. But we've had a couple of good days of practice now and whatever happens happens. We just have to go out and play again. It’s not really about the result as much as the effort we put in and the game play we execute." Getzlaf has 24 goals and 68 points this season and should be a high first round pick in playoff pools if you think the Ducks are going deep.

Ryan Getzlaf was held out of Wednesday's game.

Getzlaf was simply resting according to Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau. At the same time, Getzlaf has now missed two games in a row and Boudreau noted that "we want to make sure he's 100 percent when we go into the playoffs." It might be that Getzlaf is dealing with a nagging injury that he's capable of playing through, but isn't for the sake of being in the best possible position for the playoffs. Either way, he should be expected to participate in the postseason opener.
Apr 9 - 10:35 AM

Ryan Getzlaf did not play on Friday as coach Bruce Boudreau gave him the night off.

The Ducks have already clinched the Pacific Division and are the odds-on-favorites to win the President's Cup which goes to the team that has the most points in the regular season so the extra rest will not hurt Getzlaf as the team heads into the playoffs. Getzlaf is tied for 14th overall in the NHL in points with 68, including 44 goals. He should be a very high pick in most playoff drafts this season.
Apr 4 - 3:49 AM

Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau thinks Ryan Getzlaf should be in the running for the Hart Trophy.

"I certainly would vote for him, but at the same time, the Canadian media – and there’s a little more of them – will be going for Carey Price," Boudreau said. "If I'm looking at what we've done, what we've accomplished, who our leader is every night then Ryan Getzlaf is the guy." Statistically, Getzlaf is a hard sell. He has 24 goals and 68 points in 75 games, which is certainly good, but there are 11 forwards with more points than him. In addition to Price, Alex Ovechkin, Sidney Crosby, and John Tavares are among those that are serious contenders for the award.
Apr 1 - 9:01 AM

Ryan Getzlaf scored a goal and added an assist to help the Ducks slide by a desperate Bruins team 3-2 on Thursday night.

Mar 27 - 1:18 AM

Ryan Getzlaf vows that the Anaheim Ducks will bounce back following Tuesday's 5-3 loss to Columbus.

Anaheim also suffered a 7-2 loss to the New York Rangers on Sunday. "What we're doing and the way we’re playing right now is not acceptable," Getzlaf said. "We're going to change that. Internally. Within our locker room, we're going to change it." Anaheim has already essentially secured the top seed in the Pacific Division, so at this point the squad is mostly focused on simply ending the season on a high note so that they can carry that momentum into the playoffs.
Mar 25 - 10:32 AM

Ryan Getzlaf had an assist in a 7-2 loss to the New York Rangers.

Mar 23 - 8:49 AM

Ryan Getzlaf ignited the Ducks' big 4-2 win over Predators on Sunday night when he got his team on the board just 2:12 into the third period.

Mar 16 - 12:10 AM

Ryan Getlzaf picked up goals number 21 and 22 in a 6-3 loss to Calgary on Wednesday.

Getzlaf put on a show to start the game with back-to-back goals in 2:51 seconds. One of those goals came on the power-play and he also added four penalty minutes and four shots in the losing cause. The goals snapped a four game goal-less drought and brings the Ducks' captain to 63 points in 66 games on the campaign. Anaheim's other goal was scored by Hampus Lindholm.
Mar 12 - 12:44 AM

Getzlaf’s goal in the third period was the game winner. He has goals in two consecutive games, with 19 in total, along with 57 points, good for 10th in the league. There's no reason to expect him to slow down as the season reaches crunch time. Francois Beauchemin got the other goal on the power play, via assists from Kyle Palmieri and Rickard Rakell.

Ryan Getzlaf scored a goal and an assist in Anaheim's come-from-behind 6-3 victory over Calgary on Friday night.

The Captain had perhaps the oddest goal you'll see this year. He one-timed a Patrick Maroon pass from the point so hard, it rebounded off the wall behind Jonas Hiller, off his left skate, and in to put the Ducks up for good at 3-2 midway through the third. Getzlaf now has 18 goals and a team leading 56 points.
