The Anaheim Ducks have a chance to move into sole possession of first place in the Pacific Division on Sunday night if they can get a point against the Minnesota Wild and old friend Bruce Boudreau.
They will have to try to do it once again without one of their leading scorers and top players, Ryan Getzlaf.
Getzlaf did not take part in pregame warmups and will miss his third consecutive game on Sunday with a lower body injury.
He was injured in the Ducks’ New Years Day win over the Philadelphia Flyers and has not played since. The Ducks have won the previous two games heading into Sunday night without him.
In 36 games this season Getzlaf has five goals and 25 assists. His 30 points are tied for second on the team this season.
