from Anaheim Ducks on Twitter

Getzlaf is turning into a monster right before our very eyes. Ducks @ Stars Game Three.

Former Anaheim Calling editor and current Puck Daddy writer Jen Neale tweeted this screencap of an ailing Ryan Getzlaf during game 2:

Which was followed up with this reply:

So I made an animated GIF to test this Goonies theory, and well...

It holds up, guys.

Speaking of monsters, check out the two goals that Getzlaf has scored so far this series...

Getzlaf also had an assist in each game, and is now a two-point-a-game playoff force.

Just about a point-per-game over the life of his playoff career, and over a point-per-game if you take out his first two appearances.

Pretty impressive for such a weird looking freak.

It sure is nice to go in to Dallas with a 2-game series lead.

Now if we can just find a way around taking all of these dumb penalties, we should be all set.

Oh, and, uh, we might actually want to try to control the puck at some point, too. Just a suggestion...

On to Dallas. Try to spot Glass-Banging Guy.
