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

You can be hyped all you want, but his game will speak for itself. He's obviously going to be a great player so we've got to make sure we keep an eye on him. Whether it's his first game or his 1,000th game, our job is to take care of business, shut him down.
