Report: Hiller returns to Ducks' goal vs. Jackets

Anaheim Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller will return from injury to start Monday night against the Columbus Blue Jackets, according to reports.

Hiller left after the first period of a Feb. 8 game against the Dallas Stars with a lower-body injury. He's 3-2-1 in six starts this season with a 3.69 goals-against average and .872 save percentage.

"He's ready to play, when we decide to play him," Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau said.

In his absence, first-year NHLer Viktor Fasth has won four consecutive starts and was named the League's Second Star of the past week. Fasth is 8-0-0 overall to start his career and tied for the League lead in victories.

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
