Weight, Marchant: Game-time decisions.

Doug Weight and Todd Marchant took part in the Ducks’ morning skate, as expected, and somewhat-as-expected was Randy Carlyle’s postponement of a decision on either player’s status. Both injured centers will skate pregame and then be either allowed to play or not.

Should be another sellout and another playoff-type atmosphere tonight against the Senators.
