Giguere re-injures groin

Ducks goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere indicated Sunday afternoon that he did re-injure his groin during last night's 6-4 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets at Honda Center. Giguere, who had been hampered by a groin strain in the days leading up to the game, got the start and gave up five goals in the defeat. The last was a shot from the blue line by Fedor Tyutin that eluded Giguere and gave Columbus a 5-4 lead with 3:22 left in the game. Giguere went down in pain after the goal and left the game, to be replaced in net by Jonas Hiller.

"I didn't see the puck until the last second, and when I saw it, I threw my leg out and my groin let go," Giguere said of the goal.  "That's what happened when I hurt it before, and that made it worse."

Giguere said he didn't not think he would be available to play in tomorrow night's game against the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs at Honda Center. "I think I need to give it a couple of days of rest and see what's going to happen," he said. "We're not too concerned about it, but I think yesterday was a bit of a lesson that you've got to give it time and make sure it's ready. We have great trainers who know what they're doing and right now I don't foresee this being a problem. "

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
