Report: Ducks to start Hiller against Blackhawks

According to reports, the Anaheim Ducks will give Jonas Hiller the start in goal Wednesday night when they host the Chicago Blackhawks in a battle of the NHL's top teams.

The Ducks will be shooting for their 13th consecutive home victory and could climb to within three points of the Blackhawks in the Presidents' Trophy race if they win in regulation.

Hiller is 10-2-3 with a 2.53 goals-against average and .911 save percentage, and has been particularly hot of late. He's 4-0-1 in his past five starts, giving up a total of six goals and posting a .956 save percentage.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
