Backup goalie Josh Harding will get the nod tonight against the Ducks, who will be without injured Ryan Getzlaf among other top players including Teemu Selanne and Joffrey Lupul. Jonas Hiller will likely get the start.

Clayton Stoner looks to have some kind of groin or hip injury, and John Scott will replace him in the lineup.

Some AHL news, Maxim Noreau made the Canadian team in the AHL All-Star Game next month, while Anton Khudobin will make the Planet USA roster.

Olympic news tomorrow for the Wild. Mikko Koivu, Niklas Backstrom and Antti Miettinen will be in the running for the Finnish team, while Martin Havlat, Marek Zidlicky and perhaps Petr Sykora will be in the running for the Czech team.

For your amusement, here's a picture of Cal Clutterbuck this morning. It doesn't do this look justice though.

Talk to you tonight.
