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 think when you build a team, you look at pairs, and I think the pair of [Voracek and Giroux] is very good, certainly one of the top pairs in the League.
