Ducks forward Jakob Silfverberg sustained a broken right hand when he was slashed in Friday night's game against Ottawa, his former team. He is expected to miss four to six weeks, the Ducks announced Saturday. Silfverberg, 23, has four goals and three assists in 11 games. He had spent the bulk of the season alongside Teemu Selanne and Mathieu Perreault on the Ducks' second line. Silfverberg was slashed by Ottawa's Jared Cowen in the third period of the Ducks' 2-1 win over the Senators.

Sometimes, coaches make lineup decisions based on a gut feeling. When those decisions backfire, their gut feelings can become spasms of tension, anxiety, and early-playoff-exit regrets. Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau, fighting a reputation of being unable to lead talented teams in Washington and Anaheim deep into postseason play, made several decisions Friday that proved pivotal in the 6-2 victory that gave the Ducks a 3-2 lead over the Dallas Stars in the teams' opening-round playoff series.

It's unfair to expect 22-year-old Jakob Silfverberg to immediately replace four-time 30-goal scorer Bobby Ryan on the Ducks' scoresheet or in the hearts of their fans. But Silfverberg, who had 10 goals and 19 points in 48 games with Ottawa last season, has enough talent to suggest he will carve out his own niche with the Ducks, who acquired him with winger Stefan Noesen and a 2014 first-round draft pick for Ryan in July. Switched from his natural right side to the left Thursday, Silfverberg meshed with right wing Teemu Selanne and center Nick Bonino during the first day of practice at Anaheim Ice. To Coach Bruce Boudreau , Silfverberg lived up to his billing.

The Ducks believe their second consecutive Pacific Division title is different from last year's, which was soured by a first-round playoff exit. That difference is added grit. Fittingly, on the night Anaheim clinched the division title Wednesday with a 5-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks at a sold-out Honda Center, the game's star embodies the trait. BOX SCORE: Ducks 5, Sharks 2 Rugged forward Patrick Maroon scored two second-period goals to propel Anaheim, and rookie goalie John Gibson made 36 saves to follow a shutout win in his debut with a division clincher two days later.

Jakob Silfverberg was raised on the outdoor ice rinks of Sweden, molded by a distinguished defenseman father who won several national titles and influenced by an uncle who was once a national scoring leader. "He's got a great shot and release, so he's going to score goals when given the opportunity," Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau said of Silfverberg. "More importantly, he's very responsible - both ends of the rink. In Sweden, there's a different style of play, where you have to learn the responsibilities of the game more than just a skill.

Trading fan-favorite Bobby Ryan for a young Swedish player from the Ottawa Senators didn't appear to be a move that would strengthen the Ducks. But Jakob Silfverberg, 22, has four goals through the team's first four games, and his two-goal performance Thursday in the Ducks' 6-0 home-opener rout of the New York Rangers at Honda Center is changing the perception of a deal that looked like a pure salary dump. Silfverberg is around the net and shoots hard, as he showed in the first period by taking a pass crossed to him by Ducks legend Teemu Selanne and blasting a close-range shot past the New York Rangers' Vezina Trophy finalist Henrik Lundqvist.

After making first-line forward Dustin Penner a healthy scratch in favor of Jakob Silfverberg on Tuesday, Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau had Silfverberg paired again with stars Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry in practice Thursday. Penner has one goal and no assists and has twice been a healthy scratch - including Tuesday - in the last 11 games. Penner, 31, practiced Thursday with a second line of Mathieu Perreault and Teemu Selanne . "I don't know how long it'll last, but I thought [the first line]

Ducks forward Teemu Selanne was sent home to Orange County on Wednesday to undergo oral surgery after being struck in the upper mouth by a high stick in the team's 3-2 victory Tuesday night in Philadelphia. A Ducks spokesman said Selanne has "several missing teeth" and required "40 stitches" to close the wound after being struck by Flyers defenseman Luke Schenn . Selanne, 43, who announced previously this will be his final season, is expected to be sidelined for two weeks. The Ducks, in the midst of a season-long eight-game trip that stops in Boston on Thursday night, have won three straight away from Honda Center despite a rash of injuries.

Earlier in the day, he practiced with the Ducks' first line, which Wednesday night will include stars Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf. But he was also believed to be a leading topic of trade talks as the Ducks conversed with the Vancouver Canucks about center Ryan Kesler and were also believed to be positioned to acquire either Buffalo forward Matt Moulson or New York Islanders wing Thomas Vanek. “I haven't received word either way, so I'm just focused on tonight's game, going in with a positive mindset,” Palmieri said more than an hour before the deadline.

VANCOUVER, Canada - First place in the Pacific Division became the Ducks' again Saturday night, when they returned to the brand of play that put them there in the first place. "It's a goal" to win the division, said center Saku Koivu, one of five Ducks players who scored in a 5-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena. "We're more trying to pay attention to our game, the way we want to play, the way it has to be," Koivu said. Ducks rookie goalie Frederik Andersen stopped 31 of 32 shots as Anaheim established a new team record for most road wins (23)

SOCHI, Russia - Drew Doughty took a pass from Jeff Carter and was gone, dashing up the left side to score a spectacular goal that ended a tight, defense-dominated game. But not for the Kings. Given the green light by Team Canada Coach Mike Babcock to jump up and join the rush - or sometimes lead it - Doughty has been the sensation of the Sochi Olympic hockey tournament. He scored both goals in Canada's 2-1 overtime victory over Finland on Sunday and has four goals in three games, tops among defensemen.

So after Bonino suffered what appeared to be a right wrist injury Thursday night in a first-period collision with Philadelphia's Zac Rinaldo , the Ducks on Friday exercised caution with the 25-year-old center who is third on the team with 40 points (16 goals, 24 assists), behind only Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry . Bonino was not in attendance at practice, and Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau said Bonino isn't expected to play in Saturday night's game against the Dallas Stars at Honda Center.

What might otherwise appear as a nondescript event - road game No. 31 and game No. 60 of 82 - is much more to the Ducks. When they meet the Nashville Predators (25-23-10) on Saturday night at Bridgestone Arena, the difference between a win and a loss could leave a lingering effect - say, for three weeks. In the final game before a near three-week-long Winter Olympics break, a victory would assure the Ducks (40-14-5) stay where they've spent most of the season - leading the Western Conference in points.
