Note: Some lines may not be changed until new lines are provided by the team.

Anaheim Ducks
No lineup changes announced.

Byron Bitz returns tonight.

Patrice Bergeron and Mark Stuart are traveling with the team, they may play on this upcoming road trip.  Bergeron targeting Monday.

Craig Conroy questionable. Jamie Lundmark recalled as a contingency plan.

Fabian Brunnstrom recalled from the Texas Stars.

Injured tender Nikolai Khabibulin expects to undergo back surgery.  This surgery often is the last resort to reoccurring back problems

David Booth took part in practice, albeit non contact.  Still no timetable on when he can actually play.

Clayton Stoner took part in full practice, firing slapshots at Niklas Backstrom.  He will not play tonight.

Petr Sykora will return tonight with Cal Clutterbuck complaining of concussion-like symptoms following a “dirty” hit from Sergei Gonchar.  Clutterbuck also will play.

Ryan Parent about a week away from receiving medical clearance.

Scott Hartnell ill and missed practice.  Chris Pronger taking a maintenance day. Danny Syvret out with a dislocated shoulder and will go on long term IR. Sad considering his play pushed Braydon Coburn out of the top four.

John Curry called up to replace an injured Brent Johnson.  The team lists Johnson as day-to-day.

Brooks Orpik listed as day-to-day and skated on his own without equipment today.  No official word if he is playing, but I would guess not due to the report.

Steve Bernier likely to miss tonight’s game per Jason Botchford.

Ryan Johnson and Pavol Demitra skated but will not play tonight.

No lineup changes announced.
