The Anaheim Ducks are more than halfway through their eight-game road trip, and they've done a solid job of picking up points through the first five games.
However, they'll be forced to play the final three games of the trip without Teemu Selanne after the 43-year-old forward took a high stick from Luke Schenn to the mouth during a 3-2 win against the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night. Selanne lost several teeth as a result and also received 40 stitches. He returned to Anaheim on Wednesday to have surgery.
The Ducks, meanwhile, continue their trip Thursday night against the Boston Bruins (7 p.m. ET, NHLN-US, PRIME, NESN).
