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.
I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
