Ducks' Fowler suffers upper-body injury
Anaheim Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler left Saturday night’s game against the Los Angeles Kings with an upper-body injury.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Anaheim Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler left Saturday night’s game against the Los Angeles Kings with an upper-body injury.

Fowler was driven into the boards by Jarret Stoll at 16:31 of the second period. He stayed on his knees and was assisted to the trainer’s room. The team announced before the third period that Fowler was doubtful to return.

Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau could not update Fowler's condition after the game, as the latter was still being examined by team doctors.

Fowler, 21, leads Anaheim with 22:18 minutes of ice time per game.

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
