John Gibson was unable to play in Game 6 of the Western Conference Final because of a hamstring injury.

Jonathan Bernier started for the Ducks in Gibson's place and he surrendered four goals on 16 shots in a 6-3 loss. Gibson posted a 2.59 goals-against average and a .918 save percentage in the postseason. The Ducks were eliminated on Monday night in six games.

Nick Ritchie's night ended early in Game 6 against Nashville after he was given a five-minute major for boarding and a game misconduct.

The incident occurred at the 11:38 mark of the first period. Nashville jumped out to a 2-0 lead before Ritchie's hit left Viktor Arvidsson bloody, but the Predators didn't add to their lead on the lengthy man advantage. The Ducks battled back in the third, but their playoff run is over following a 6-3 loss.

Goalie Jonathan Bernier, making his first postseason start because of a lower-body injury to first-stringer John Gibson, had a forgettable night Monday, stopping only 12 of the 16 shots he faced in the Anaheim Ducks' 6-3 loss to the Predators in Nashville.

The Preds, who qualified for the first Stanley Cup Final in their history with the victory in the sixth game of the Western Conference Final, scored on Bernier on two of their first three shots. Bernier settled down somewhat after that but didn't get much work and allowed four goals on 16 Nashville shots. Bernier's postseason goals-against average in four appearances was 3.28 and his save percentage, .873.

John Gibson (lower body) isn't dressing for Game 6 Monday night.

Gibson was hurt during Game 5 on Saturday. He participated in Monday's morning skate, which led to some hope that he would be available for Game 6, but Jonathan Bernier will instead get the start while Jhonas Enroth is serving as the backup goaltender.

Jhonas Enroth will serve as the Ducks' backup goaltender on Monday.

John Gibson is unavailable due to a lower-body injury. Enroth has only ever appeared in one playoff game, but he's played in 153 career regular season contests.

Jonathan Bernier will play between the pipes in Game 6 Monday night.

John Gibson suffered a lower-body injury in Game 5. He skated Monday morning and the hope was that he would be available, but that ultimately wasn't the case. Bernier has a 2.90 GAA and .905 save percentage in three playoff games this year, but this will be his first postseason start of the Ducks' run.

John Gibson (lower body) took part in Monday's morning skate.

Gibson left Game 5 after he suffered the injury. Ducks coach Randy Carlyle took that as a good sign, but he'll naturally need to consult with the goaltender and the training staff before he has a final answer regarding Gibson's availability for Game 6 Monday night.

Sam Steel, the Ducks first round pick in 2016, is travelling with the team to Nashville for Game 6.

Steel led the Western Hockey League with 131 points in the regular season and was second in playoff scoring with 30 so the Ducks picked a good one with the 30th selection. While it is doubtful he will get into the lineup, the experience of being with the playoff team will be invaluable to Steel in the future. Grab him in keeper leagues but don't expect him to crack the Ducks lineup next season.
Mon, May 22, 2017 07:54:00 AM

Patrick Eaves did not travel with the Ducks to Nashville and is doubtful on Monday with a leg injury.

Coach Randy Carlyle gave Ducks fans some hope after Game 5 that Eaves would return as he was upgraded to day-to-day but Sunday was a different story. "There wasn’t a positive response from Eaves’s skating yesterday," Carlyle said. "So we decided we’d leave him at home." Eaves was injured in the series against Edmonton and has not played since April 30. His scoring has been missed in the Ducks lineup.

John Gibson is questionable for Game 6 with a lower body injury.

Gibson was pulled in Game 5 when he suffered a lower body injury and although he did travel with the team to Nashville, a decision on his status will be made after the morning skate. "We’ll do a reassessment tomorrow morning at our morning skate," coach Randy Carlyle said. If Gibson is unable to go, Jonathan Bernier will get the start and Jhonas Enroth will be the backup. Stay tuned.
Mon, May 22, 2017 07:43:00 AM

Rickard Rakell (lower body) will not play in Game 6 on Monday.

Rakell missed Game 5 as a surprise scratch but is obviously ailing as he did not make the trip to Nashville for Monday's game. Rakell led the Ducks in goals this season with 33 goals and his loss from the lineup may be pivotal.
