ANAHEIM – Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau had said he was reluctant to rest players for the final stretch of the regular season but he left open that possibility regarding centers Ryan Kesler and Ryan Getzlaf.
Getzlaf, like he often does, did not participate in the morning skate in advance of Anaheim’s game Wednesday against the Edmonton Oilers. Kesler took Getzlaf’s place on the top line, usually a sign that Kesler, who played Sunday against the New Jersey Devils but is dealing with an arm injury, will sit out.
Boudreau was coy when asked about Kesler being available.
“I don’t know if he’s playing, but he’s good to go,” Boudreau said.
