by Kyle Shohara @kyleshohara / AnaheimDucks.com

Familiar face, different place.

When the Ducks hit the ice later tonight at Pepsi Center, they will see former teammate Jonathan Bernier staffing the crease at the Avs end of the rink. Bernier is now a member of the Colorado Avalanche after he signed a one-year contract on July 1.

Eaves Takes Part in Morning Skate, Could Make Season Debut Tonight

by Kyle Shohara @kyleshohara / AnaheimDucks.com

Tonight could be the night when the Bearded One returns to the lineup.

All signs indicate it coming to fruition, as earlier today Patrick Eaves took part in the morning skate on a line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. Eaves missed most of training camp and all of the preseason with a lower-body injury, but has taken part in full practices over the past few days. If Eaves plays, he will skate at left wing, something he has no issue with despite it being his off-wing.

Getzlaf Could Make Season Debut Tonight vs. Flames

by Kyle Shohara @kyleshohara / AnaheimDucks.com

Reinforcements might be on the way.

We won't know until pregame warmups when he gives it a go, but tonight could mark the season debut for Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf. There is no doubt he's the one that stirs the team's drink, so having him back would give the Ducks a huge boost down the middle.

The talented undrafted rookie is back in Anaheim and could make his NHL debut later tonight when the Ducks host the Arizona Coyotes in the season opener. Fiore, who was one of the club's standout players throughout training camp and preseason, is happy to be back.

Pregame: Line Combos, Lineup Sheets and More Leading into Tonight's Game

by Kyle Shohara @kyleshohara / AnaheimDucks.com

The Ducks held a morning skate at Honda Center earlier today in preparation of their preseason opener against the San Jose Sharks at SAP Center (7 p.m., Radio: XEPRS 1090 AM.) [NOTE: You can also listen to the game on AM830's official website and mobile app].

Preseason travel usually occurs the day of the game, and in this case the Ducks will land in San Jose in the late afternoon and bus straight to the arena.

by Kyle Shohara @kyleshohara / AnaheimDucks.com

NASHVILLE -- It's going to be intense, it's going to be emotional and it's going to be nerve wracking. But despite everything that comes with a do-or-die scenario - in this case, Game 6 of the Western Conference Final - there will be a man who will show unwavering poise in the face of adversity: Randy Carlyle.

Anaheim's head coach has been through this before, and he says it's times like these when he and his assistant coaches need to lead by example.

Sense of Calmness Among Ducks as They Prepare for Game 4 in Nashville

by Kyle Shohara @kyleshohara / AnaheimDucks.com

NASHVILLE -- On the morning of a crucial swing game in the Western Conference Final, there was an enduring sense of calmness within the Ducks locker room. There hasn't been any panic within these walls at any point during the playoffs, and there certainly isn't any now.

With that being said, this isn't a must-win game by any means, but it is one they could really use as the series shifts to Honda Center for Game 5 on Saturday. It takes four victories to win a series, and the Nashville Predators are halfway there. If the second round was any indication, the Ducks are still very much alive in this series. A win tonight would give them a split through four games and bring home ice advantage back into the equation, and a best-of-seven series suddenly turns into a best of three.

Kesler, Ducks Eager to Get Game 3 Started

by Kyle Shohara @kyleshohara / AnaheimDucks.com

NASHVILLE -- Outside of the Ducks locker room, Ryan Kesler waited patiently, his back leaning against the wall and his hands resting comfortably behind his back.

It was a moment of solitude before a voice yelled out "Kesler!" - signaling a mad dash at the far end of the hallway. A large gathering of media converged upon the league's premier checking center, jostling for position much like the players on the ice will do later tonight.
