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

I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
