Ducks' Hiller to miss third straight game

by NHL.com Staff / NHL.com

The Anaheim Ducks announced Friday that goalie Jonas Hiller will miss his third straight game due to a lower-body injury.

Hiller last played Feb. 8, when he was injured late in the first period of a game against the Dallas Stars. He was replaced for the final two periods of that game by Viktor Fasth, who will make his third straight start when the Ducks play Friday at the Detroit Red Wings.

According to the Ducks' official Twitter account, coach Bruce Boudreau said that while Hiller has shown improvement, he isn't ready to get back into the lineup. Jeff Deslauriers will serve as Fasth's backup.
