At the Rink: Devils at Ducks

Goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov will give Frederik Andersen a rare night off Friday when the Anaheim Ducks host the New Jersey Devils at Honda Center.

With the Ducks beginning a back-to-back set that sees them playing at the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday, coach Bruce Boudreau will turn to Bryzgalov for his third start of the season.

Anderson had played eight of the past nine games, and had a 28-save shutout Wednesday against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

"Usually you come back with the goaltender who just had the shutout, but this was something that we had planned," Boudreau said, according to the Ducks website. "We want him to play and we need him to play well."
