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

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
