Ducks' Hiller suffers lower-body injury

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

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
