"There's a good chance," Boudreau said.
Andersen, 24, became the youngest goaltender in Ducks history to appear in a playoff game. He was beaten cleanly once, on Colton Sceviour's quick snap shot."[Andersen] played really solid,' Boudreau said. "You're not going to stop the backdoor goal. The second one was screened and deflected, and the third was a great tip. Anything that he could see that he got in front of, he stopped, and that’s what you ask of a goalie."
Devante Smith-Pelly took Beleskey’s spot in practice.
"It feels better. It's just day-to-day," Beleskey said. "It's been something that's kind of been bugging me. All year, it’s kind of been all over the place."
Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf has a deep facial laceration but X-rays were negative and he is expected to play in Game 2. He did not skate Thursday.
Ruff, asked if Dillion is close to skating, said, “Well, the room is approximately 150 feet from the rink, which means he’s close.”
