Gibby back for Ducks

John Gibson will make just his second start of the season tonight when the Ducks host the Blue Jackets in Anaheim.

Gibson, who recently spent time with the Ducks’ AHL affiliate in Norfolk, has watched Frederik Andersen put a stranglehold on the No. 1 gig recently — Andersen is a perfect 6-0-0 this season with a sparkling .951 save percentage and 1.32 GAA, all of which came after Gibson lost Anaheim’s season-opener in Pittsburgh on Oct. 9.

No word yet on who’ll get the nod for Columbus tonight. Sergei Bobrovsky was in for last night’s wild 5-4 win over the Sharks.
