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

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
