ANAHEIM -- Anaheim Ducks goalie John Gibson did not dress for Game 1 of the Western Conference Second Round on Thursday at Honda Center because of the flu.

Jason LaBarbera again dressed as the backup for starter Frederik Andersen, who played all four first-round games. LaBarbera had not practiced with the Ducks during the week.

Gibson participated in practices during the week, including the morning skate Thursday, and Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau said earlier this week that Gibson was "fine" after an upper-body injury that made him unavailable in the first round.
