ANAHEIM -- Anaheim Ducks goalie Viktor Fasth sustained a lower-body injury in pregame warm-ups Friday night and is being evaluated, the team said.

Fasth was expected to start against the Tampa Bay Lightning but Jonas Hiller was inserted after Fasth was hurt. Fasth missed 14 games earlier this season with a lower-body injury, and Frederik Andersen capably filled his spot.

The Ducks are trying to snap a five-game winless (0-3-2) streak while Tampa Bay has lost the first three games of a four-game road trip and been outscored 16-6 in that skid.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
