3. DUCKS SEND HILLER BACK TO ANAHEIM

After a solid first half Anaheim Ducks all star netminder Jonas Hiller began feeling sick and unfortunately he hasn’t been able to completely shake off what has been diagnosed as vertigo.  Hiller who had a solid 2.56 GAA and a .924 save percentage in his first 26 games last played on March 24 before getting lifted in mid game against the Nashville Predators. During the first three games of the Ducks playoff series against Nashville Hiller has been a healthy scratch. On Tuesday Ducks management decided to send Hiller home to recover.
