Making the correct snap decision on a blown coverage is what separates the very good from the great and in the biggest game of the year on the biggest stage, Getzlaf was given the chance to shine and he reverted to his instinct, brawn over brains. Zetterberg, Datsyuk and Crosby, to a man, tie up Cleary's stick if they are in that situation without a second thought. That's why they are great two-way players and why Getzlaf is a very good offensive player who likes to hit.
See Bandit. No worries.
The Ducks were completely outplayed by Detroit in that series and they were lucky to get to a game 7. Not enough depth on the Ducks to pull off that upset.
The Ducks didn't have the same depth and secondary scoring, and that's why they couldn't advance. If they were playing a lesser team, maybe, but it was a series that where I always felt Detroit was in control.
