Ryan Getzlaf's (lower body) absence on Tuesday came as a "little bit of a surprise" for the Ducks, per coach Randy Carlyle.

The decision was made for Getzlaf to sit after he couldn't get loose during the pregame warmups. Getzlaf apparently started experiencing the injury on Monday. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Jonathan Bernier made 34 saves and let one puck get past him as the Ducks downed the Canucks 4-1 Tuesday.

Bernier has two shutouts so far, but this was his third-best save percentage of the season. He logged a .971 against the Sharks on March 18 and while that game was a virtual tie for Tuesday’s contest, he faced one fewer shot on goal. Bernier entered the night with a season-long save percentage of .917 and a GAA of 2.47. He improved both stats significantly with this win.

Nick Ritchie scored one goal and had one assist Tuesday night as the Ducks beat the Canucks 4-1.

This is Ritchie’s fourth multi-point game of the season and his first since February 22. Notably, all three of his previous multi-point games came with two assists and no goals. In the 11 games since then, he has not exactly been burning up the ice with only two goals and two assists on the strength of 22 shots.

Ryan Getzlaf won't play Tuesday because of a lower-body injury.

He was a late scratch for the contest after testing the ailment at the pregame warmup. Getzlaf is listed as day-to-day.

John Gibson will back up Jonathan Bernier on Tuesday against the Canucks.

Gibson has seen just one game since Feb. 20th due to injury, but it appears he's on the mend and should return to his crease soon.

Jonathan Bernier is projected to start Tuesday's game against Vancouver.

He was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate, so it's expected that he will start and John Gibson, who is healthy again, will be his understudy. Bernier has been great during Gibson's absence, so it isn't surprising that he appears to be getting another start.

Andrew Cogliano has been selected as the Anaheim Ducks' nominee for the Masterton Trophy.

It looks like John Gibson (lower body) will at least be available to serve as the backup goalie on Tuesday.

After all, the Ducks demoted Jhonas Enroth on Monday, so Gibson is now one of just two goaltenders on Anaheim's roster. Gibson last played on March 10 and before that he hadn't played since Feb. 20.

John Gibson (lower body) will join the Ducks for their upcoming four-game road trip.

Anaheim's road trip will begin in Vancouver on Tuesday and conclude with a game in Calgary on April 2. The hope is that Gibson will be able to return before the end of the trip, though beyond that it's not clear when he might start.

Patrick Eaves and Ryan Getzlaf have been playing really well together for the Ducks.

Eaves was acquired from the Stars before the trade deadline and ever since he's been moved to a line with Getzlaf, they've produced at a good clip. Eaves has scored six goals in 13 games with Anaheim, while Getzlaf has picked up 20 points in 12 his last 12 contests. Rickard Rakell is the other dangerous forward on that line. "I was hoping for this," Eaves said. "Getzy’s playing out of his mind right now. Just the way he possesses the puck, it makes it really easy to play on his line. And we got Ricky flying and making plays. I feel like we’re getting some chemistry and that was what I was hoping for."
