Ducks expect Fowler, Heatley on opening road trip

The Anaheim Ducks expect injured defenseman Cam Fowler and forward Dany Heatley to play at some point during their season-opening road trip next week, coach Bruce Boudreau said Friday.

Fowler was injured at practice Thursday. He had to be helped off the ice and did not put weight on his left leg.

"He’s hopeful to be playing on the trip, so we’ll see how it goes day by day," Boudreau told the Ducks website. "He said he wanted to play on the trip. I don’t really know what that means, whether it’s Thursday or Saturday. He felt good today, but every time I ask a player, they say they feel good, or they feel better. We're anticipating both him and Heatley will play on this trip."

Luongo happy to be back with Panthers

Goaltender Roberto Luongo is in his second stint with the Florida Panthers after being acquired from the Vancouver Canucks in March. He told NHL Live on Friday that there have been a lot of changes to the Panthers' franchise since he was traded to Vancouver in the summer of 2006.

"The only reason I came back was that I felt things were different with the new ownership and their commitment to bringing in some new players and trying to build a winner," he said. "I think we have a good nucleus of players, and we brought in some good veterans -- guys who've won the Stanley Cup. Hopefully we can put things together and make a run for a playoff spot."

Quote of the Day

Obviously he's been my favorite goalie since I grew up. He's kind of close to my hometown so I've been watching him my whole life. It's a pretty special moment for me to score two goals on Lundqvist in such an important game as this.
