Ducks goaltender Jonas Hiller suffered a cut above his left eye when a
puck struck his mask during practice Saturday in Chicago. Hiller was taken
to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago for precautionary reasons
and received four sutures. He is scheduled to be re-evaluated Sunday
The Ducks are catching the defending Stanley Cup champions at a good time – Chicago lost in Nashville in a shootout on Saturday, their fifth loss in six games. Backup Corey Crawford (1-4-0, 2.82 goals-against average) figures to get the start after Marty Turco played all 65 minutes plus the shootout against the Predators, stopping 30 of 33 shots.
Curtis McElhinney, who recorded his first career shutout Wednesday and nearly started Friday against the Dallas Stars, could get the start if Hiller isn’t ready to go.
