The Ducks for the second time this season had to summon an emergency backup goaltender to their bench after Jonas Hiller was ruled out of Friday night's game at the Honda Center versus the Dallas Stars. The replacement, Rob Laurie of Corona, has a distant connection to the arena's history, given that he was the starting goaltender for the inline hockey Anaheim Bullfrogs on July 2, 1993, in the first professional sporting event at the arena. Laurie, 42, who proceeded to lead the Bullfrogs to the International League championship in 1993 while earning playoff most-valuable-player recognition, was expected to have a very short stint as the Ducks' backup goalie to Friday night starter Viktor Fasth.

Update: This is the second game of a back-to-back on what is the Ducks' longest trip of the season, a journey that next heads to Tampa Bay and Florida. The Ducks have Saku Koivu back, and Teemu Selanne could soon return as well. But the Capitals, led by Alexander Ovechkin, are one of the hottest teams in the league and will be going for their eighth victory in a row. -- Debbie Goffa
