Ducks without captain Ryan Getzlaf and veteran Teemu Selanne for Game 4 vs. Stars

DALLAS - Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf is out of Game 4 against the Dallas Stars because of an upper-body injury.

With Getzlaf out and right wing Teemu Selanne a healthy scratch, the Ducks were without their top two playoff veterans Wednesday night.

Getzlaf took a puck in the face in the series opener and played the last two games with a half-cage to protect the stitches just below his mouth.

The 43-year-old Selanne, who is in his 21st and expected to be his last NHL season, has appeared in a franchise-record 87 post-season games for the Ducks, 15 more than Getzlaf.

Selanne is also the team's top post-season scorer with 64 points (33 goals, 31 assists), one more than Getzlaf (23 goals, 40 assists).

Quote of the Day

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.

— Islanders captain John Tavares
