ANAHEIM -- Anaheim Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau did not name his starting goaltender Saturday morning for Game 1 of the Western Conference Second Round series against the Los Angeles Kings. But signs point to veteran Jonas Hiller getting the nod ahead of rookie Frederik Andersen at Honda Center (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN, RDS).
Hiller did not take part in Anaheim's morning skate, which started before 9 a.m., because of the 5 p.m. local start time for Game 1, but Andersen did. Boudreau did note that Hiller has not taken part in morning skates before early starts all season. Hiller has started for the Ducks on those occasions.
"I don't know, you'll have to find out," Boudreau said when asked to name his starting goaltender. "I don't know why it's such a big deal. One of the two will be playing. We're going to have six guys on the ice most of the night.
"If it makes L.A. work a little harder to figure out on their scouting report on who they're going to go against, even if it is five minutes extra, let's make them work a little harder."
