Hiller to start in goal for Ducks?

The last time the Dallas Stars faced the Anaheim Ducks was last week, when a couple of fluky goals went in past Jean-Sebastien Giguere as the Stars won, 3-1. (I wouldn't say both of them were his fault, either, they just hit off people and did some strange things).


They'll play Anaheim in California tonight and, according to The Orange County Register blog about the Ducks, Jonas Hiller could be in goal. Part of the entry:

    In theory, if Ducks coach Randy Carlyle applies his "if you're win, you're in" approach to tomorrow's home game against Dallas, it would mean that Jonas Hiller would get the start given that Jean-Sebastien Giguere took the loss in Sunday's 4-3 shootout defeat against Ottawa.


    The fact is Giguere and Hiller have been alternating starts the last four games since Hiller got the nod against the Kings after a start Giguere made against Phoenix in which he played well but lost in a shootout to Phoenix.
    Neither goalie has won since and it's left Giguere wondering what would have happened had Carlyle stuck with him during a run where he went 3-0-1 with a 1.71 goals-against average.


    "If you keep going, good things could happen," Giguere acknowledged. "Sometimes a judgment call is more appropriate than that. I think at this point, Jonas and I have got to just take it one day at a time, not worry too much about the next game and just worry when you're called upon and try to give the team a chance."
