Selanne sits out for Ducks against Senators

OTTAWA -- Teemu Selanne was a scratch for the Anaheim Ducks' game against the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Centre on Friday.

Selanne, who played in Anaheim's 4-1 loss at the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday, is not expected to play games on consecutive days this season. He is four games shy of his 1,400th regular-season NHL game.

Ducks goalie Frederik Andersen made his first career start. He made his NHL debut Sunday with a win in relief of Jonas Hiller.

Quote of the Day

We've got to find a way to win a game. He's played well in the minors, now he gets his opportunity. We tried [with Jonathan Bernier]. The way I look at it, you get opportunities and you make the most of it. That's what [James Reimer] did. Now another opportunity is here and Sparks ... you gotta grab it. Is he ready? We'll find out.
