Todd Marchant skated with his Ducks teammates in practice today and appeared fully recovered from a Dan Girardi hit late in Sunday’s 3-0 loss to the New York Rangers.
Marchant, who did not return to the game after the hit, said “his entire left side” — the side that Girardi scrunched against the end boards — felt sore.
“Luckily I just got my head turned in time and went in backwards,” he said. “I put myself in a bad position. Tried to go to the net, got turned and got a little push and went into the boards.”
