Brad May to miss two weeks.

With the way the Ducks’ fourth line is playing right now, any disruption to this well-oiled machine isn’t welcome. That said, an MRI revelaed that Brad May sprained his right knee, an injury that will only keep him out two weeks – and that’s relatively good news for the Ducks.

The 17-year veteran was injured finishing a check on Detroit’s Kris Draper in the second period of the Ducks’ 5-4 victory Wednesday. In eight games this season, May had four assists and a plus-5 rating, second on the team.

As an aside, check this out: The four highest plus-minus ratings on the team belong to guys who have played on the fourth line this year – Brian Sutherby, May, George Parros and Ryan Carter, in that order. That may be the biggest testament to their collective improvement this season.
