Things haven’t been great for the Anaheim Ducks in Game 7s the past couple seasons. In 2013, they lost in the first round to the seventh-seeded Detroit Red Wings in seven games. This past season saw them lose in seven to the eventual Stanley Cup Champions, the Los Angeles Kings, again in seven games. While you might think Game 7 losses might be ruinous to a team, defenseman Cam Fowler thinks otherwise as he said in an interview on the Ducks’ website. “The biggest thing was experiencing something like that,” Fowler said. “We had a pretty young team, aside from guys like Teemu [Selanne] and Saku [Koivu] – guys who had been in situations like that. For the rest of us, that was our first Game 7 besides when we lost to Detroit the season prior.
