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

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
