The Ducks are coming off a 2-1 overtime loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs. Anaheim is currently five points out of first place and two points out of a wild-card spot despite their inconsistent play. The Ducks will be at home for three games this week before starting their five-game road trip.
Hampus Lindholm was placed on the IR today. Patrick Eaves and Cam Fowler were both placed on the IR last week. Eaves took a hard check in the loss to Minnesota and has an upper-body injury(back spasms). He could play today. In the game against Nashville, Fowler was struck in the cheek area from a deflected puck. Fowler had surgery this past Friday. There hasn’t been an official word on how long he will be out, but it could be 1-2 months. Carter Rowney(Upper-Body) is also on the IR. Corey Perry(knee) and Korbinian Holzer(wrist) are on the long-term injury list.
