Red-hot Ducks get Getzlaf back versus Canucks
Ryan Getzlaf will play. Jonas Hiller may not.
Those are the two key bits of news for the practically unbeatable Anaheim Ducks, who host the Canucks tonight in hopes of extending their season-long streak of 21 home games without a regulation loss.
According to Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau, Hiller is under the weather, but still may start in goal versus Vancouver.
“We told him to stay home this morning, and we’ll check on him this afternoon,” said Boudreau.
From Eric Stephens of the OC Register:
BB wouldn't rule out Hiller or say if Andersen or Gibson will go tonight in his place. Andersen was first off the ice. He deferred to coach.— Eric Stephens (@icemancometh) January 15, 2014
As for Getzlaf, who missed Sunday’s 1-0 win over Detroit with a lower-body injury...
BB did confirm that Ryan Getzlaf is back in tonight against Canucks. Was pretty apparent yesterday.— Eric Stephens (@icemancometh) January 15, 2014
The first-place Ducks have won seven straight and 17 of their last 18. They also beat the Canucks in their previous two meetings this season.
