ANAHEIM -- The Anaheim Ducks goalie situation further unfolded Monday, but John Gibson will make his sixth straight start when they play the Detroit Red Wings at Honda Center.
Frederik Andersen, the No. 1 goalie most of the season, remains out with a neck injury. Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau said he thought later this week might be realistic for Andersen to return, but Andersen downplayed any kind of timetable. Andersen said he needs to get his conditioning back up to speed. He has been out since Feb. 8, when the goal apparatus fell on him.
"It's tough to say," Andersen said. "It's really a day-by-day thing. We can't really predict how I'm going to feel tomorrow or Wednesday. But yeah, for sure, I'd rather be out there sooner than that, but we can't predict the future."
Andersen said he wants to get himself right for the long run, specifically the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
"If I look back on my career in 15 years, I don't think I'm going to be disappointed that I took another week or two, but it's about taking the right steps," he said.
