Hiller last played Feb. 8, when he was injured late in the first period of a game against the Dallas Stars. He was replaced for the final two periods of that game by Viktor Fasth, who will make his third straight start when the Ducks play Friday at the Detroit Red Wings.
According to the Ducks' official Twitter account, coach Bruce Boudreau said that while Hiller has shown improvement, he isn't ready to get back into the lineup. Jeff Deslauriers will serve as Fasth's backup.
There's not much to say. We played like [garbage]. I think every guy in the room should be completely embarrassed about how they played tonight. Every single person. To start a road trip, one of the biggest road trips and have a division rival chasing you down and have a ton on the line, it's ridiculous how we played tonight.
