Playoffs are both a game of skills and endurance. Reaching the third round is proof enough that your team possesses the skills to go deep, but you still need to field a semi-healthy lineup to score the goals.
In a series that had many important players injured, the Ducks announced that yet another star forward will be missing tonight.
The extent of the injury is not known yet and more details will filter through the night. However, it's a tough loss for the Ducks offensive squad. Rakell scored in Thursday's win and he brings an important aspect to the strategy. Hopefully, his absence will be limited to one game only or the Ducks will feel it in the long run.
