Injured Beleskey to accompany Ducks to Dallas

The Anaheim Ducks held an optional skate Saturday, with an estimated 12 players participating.

Injured forward Matt Beleskey (lower body) did not skate, according to the Ducks' official Twitter, but coach Bruce Boudreau said he will travel with the team for Games 3 and 4 against the Dallas Stars.

Game 3 is Monday at American Airlines Center (9:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, RDS, TSN, KDOC, TXA 21).

Anaheim won Game 2, 3-2, on Friday, to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-7 series. Corey Perry scored his first playoff goal since April 20, 2011, against the Nashville Predators.

Perry had two assists in a seven-game loss to the Detroit Red Wings in the first round last year.

"I think it was a big load off his mind," Boudreau said. "But that's just me, and I'm sure 17,000 fans thought that too."

Beleskey had a goal and an assist in Game 1 but did not play Game 2.

Yeah, I guess so. That empty-netter was pretty lucky, but I'll take it.
