Lydman doesn't travel with Ducks

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.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
