Hiller likely to skate Tuesday; Fowler remains out

The Anaheim Ducks updated injury news on a couple of their key players Monday, goaltender Jonas Hiller and defenseman Cam Fowler.

According to coach Bruce Boudreau, Hiller is improving in his recovery from a lower-body injury and should skate Tuesday. He left Friday night's game against Dallas after the first period.

Fowler, meanwhile, is unlikely to play for the remainder of the Ducks' road trip, which includes stops Tuesday in Chicago, Friday in Detroit and Saturday in Nashville. Fowler hasn't played since sustaining an upper-body injury Feb. 2 against Los Angeles.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
