The Anaheim Ducks won’t have John Gibson in net tonight versus the Washington Capitals.

As you’ll note from Goalie Nods earlier in the day, the Ducks had not announced their starter for tonight’s game. Well, turns out, Gibson is dealing with a lower-body injury and is now listed as day-to-day, per an announcement from the club.

In a corresponding move, the Ducks recalled Jhonas Enroth from the American Hockey League. That means Jonathan Bernier could get the start, per Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register.

The Ducks face a Capitals team that has lost three in a row — all by the score of 4-2. Goals have been difficult to come by of late for Washington, which has boasted one of the highest scoring teams in the NHL all season.
