The Ducks and Sharks have met once in the playoffs, having the Sharks sweeping the Ducks in the first round of 2017.

The Ducks and Sharks have never met in the playoffs, but most games between the two teams often promise an entertaining game filled with great goaltending, hard checking, and end to end rushes.
   
 
The Ducks rivalry with Dallas goes even further, as both teams met twice in the playoffs during their histories. The first playoff meeting with Dallas came in 2003, when the Ducks were en-route to a Cinderella playoff run that would see them only fail in losing the [[Stanley Cup]] to the [[New Jersey Devils]] in a hard-fought seven-game series. The Ducks came in as a seventh-seeded team in the 2003 playoffs, matched up with Dallas in the Western Conference Semifinal. The Ducks posted two dramatic overtime wins in Games 1 and 2 in Dallas, with the latter lasting well over five overtime periods before a [[Petr Sykora]] goal wound end the grueling marathon. Games 3 and 4 were in Anaheim, this time with Dallas ending the Ducks' home unbeaten streak with a 2-1 win in Game 3. Game 4 saw a dramatic Ducks win in which Jason Arnott was whistled for a penalty with under 2 minutes to go in regulation. Former Duck [[Mike Leclerc]] sealed the bid on a wrist shot that managed to beat [[Marty Turco]] from a few feet out on an angle from the net. The Ducks won Game 4 by a score of 1-0. Dallas managed to steal Game 5 from the Ducks by a 5-2 score on home ice that saw the Ducks replace [[Jean-Sébastien Giguère|Jean-Sebastien Giguere]] in goal with former backup [[Martin Gerber]]. Game 6 would come back to Anaheim, as the Ducks had a chance to end the series on home ice. Again, the game would end in dramatic fashion as the Ducks held Dallas at bay at a 3-2 score, until [[Stu Barnes]] of Dallas would score a disallowed goal, however Dallas would come back some few minutes later to tie the game. Sandis Ozolinsh scored on a one-timed wristshot from in front of the circle that would beat Marty Turco, and edge the Stars in a nail-biting game, by a final score of 4-3, and a Ducks series win in six games.
