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

You get the right whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
