Anaheim Ducks defenseman Toni Lydman did not travel with team to Detroit prior to Game 6 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals to be played Friday.

Coach Bruce Boudreau has no timetable for Lydman's return, the Ducks said via Twitter.

The Ducks lead the best-of-7 Western Conference Quarterfinal against the Detroit Red Wings, 3-2, heading into Game 6 at Joe Louis Arena (8 p.m. ET, CNBC, TSN2, RDSI, KDOC, FS-D).

Lydman was injured in Game 3 by a hit from Red Wings forward Justin Abdelkader, who was suspended for two games by the NHL and can return to play Friday.

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.
