The Anaheim Ducks lost Game 1 of their second round Stanley Cup match up against the Edmonton Oilers but they may have lost much more than that.

According to a breaking news report from Ducks insider Eric Stephens of the Orange Country Register, head coach Randy Carlyle has informed him that defenseman Kevin Bieksa is listed as "doubtful" for Game 2 of the series.

The Ducks blue line has been decimated by injuries this postseason and it seems now like Bieksa is just the latest victim of the injury bug. The good news for Anaheim is some of their defensemen are now getting healthy, and the injury to Bieksa could open the door for Hampus Lindholm to make his return to the line up.

Obviously though this is merely a silver lining to what is very bad news for the Ducks.
