Ducks lose, Giguere hurt.

Ducks goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere sustained a game-ending injury, and surrendered the game-winning goal, with 3:22 left in a 6-4 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets at Honda Center.

Giguere, who was hobbled by a groin injury earlier in the week, remained on his hands and knees for about a minute after allowing the goal to Columbus’ Fedor Tyutin, then skated off on his own power — hunched over, and his hand on his midsection.

Joffrey Lupul scored twice, and Scott Niedermayer and Teemu Selanne added power-play goals for the Ducks (3-5-1), who had not scored with the man advantage since Oct. 8 in Boston.

More details in tomorrow’s editions.
