After tweaking his groin late in a 6-4 loss to Columbus on Saturday, Ducks goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere did not practice with teammates Sunday, but will try to avoid going on injured reserve.
“It’s kind of what happened earlier in the week when I hurt (my groin) before,” he said. “This made it worse.”
Giguere sustained the injury with 3:22 left in the third period trying unsuccessfully to stop a Fedor Tyutin shot from the blue line with 3:2 left in the third period. Giguere remained hunched over on the ice for about a minute before skating off on his own power. The goal proved to be the game-winner.
“I didn’t see the puck until the last second,” Giguere said. “When I saw it, I threw my leg out and my groin let go.”
