“I don’t know why it’s such a big deal,” Boudreau said after the Ducks held an optional morning skate. “One of the two are playing. We’ll have six guys on the ice most of the night.”Or so they hope.
Hiller saved the day for the Ducks in the sixth game of
their first-round series against the Stars. He came on in relief of
rookie Frederik Andersen
and stopped all 12 shots he faced, good enough to get the win when the
Ducks rallied late and clinched the series with a 5-4 overtime victory
Sunday. He was 1-0-1 against the Kings in two games during the regular
season, with a 0.96 goals-against average, .977 save percentage and one
shutout. Andersen was 3-0-0 against the Kings in three regular-season
games, with a 1.62 goals-against average and .949 save percentage. The
Kings were 0-4-1 against the Ducks in their season series.
