Ducks send Hiller home as vertigo symptoms recur
The Anaheim Ducks have sent goaltender Jonas Hiller home from Nashville due to recurring vertigo symptoms, the team announced via its official Twitter feed on Tuesday.

Hiller won 26 games this season with a 2.56 goals-against average and .924 save percentage, earning him a spot in the All-Star Game, but he's appeared in only three games since returning from Raleigh.

Dan Ellis and Ray Emery have split the goaltending duties in the Ducks' first-round playoff series against the Predators, with Emery relieving an ineffective Ellis in the opener and starting each of the last two games.

Igor Bobkov will serve as the team's third goaltending moving forward, according to the team's Twitter feed. The 20-year-old Bobkov played most of this season for the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League and also had a two-game stint with the Ducks' AHL affiliate, the Syracuse Crunch.

Anaheim trails the best-of-7 series 2-1 with Game 4 in Nashville on Wednesday.
Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
