Getzlaf is back in lineup for Ducks

ANAHEIM -- Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf participated in warm-ups and will play Game 5 of the Western Conference First Round Series against the Dallas Stars on Friday at Honda Center.

Getzlaf took line rushes with Corey Perry and Nick Bonino. Getzlaf missed Game 4 with an undisclosed upper-body injury that is believed to be related to the facial injury that required stitches in Game 1.

Anaheim also skated its kid line of Devante Smith-Pelly, Rickard Rakell and Emerson Etem. The other lines in warm-ups were Jakob Silfverberg, Saku Koivu and Andrew Cogliano, and Patrick Maroon-Mathieu Perreault and Teemu Selanne.

Ducks defenseman Hampus Lindholm was not on the ice and was scratched with a stiff neck. Luca Sbisa took his place. Lindholm saw 12:37 of ice time in Game 4, his lowest total of the series, and coach Bruce Boudreau said Friday morning that he likes Sbisa's experience.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
