ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Anaheim Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller left Sunday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets with a lower-body injury and did not return.

His status was not immediately known.

Hiller suffered the injury as he sprawled out in the crease to make a save late in the first period.

Iiro Tarkki, who was recalled from AHL Syracuse earlier Sunday because of a groin injury to Dan Ellis, replaced Hiller and made his NHL debut.

If Hiller's injury is serious, it could put Anaheim in a bind. The Ducks announced earlier Sunday that Ellis would miss about four weeks.
Quote of the Day

For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.
