Ducks close to full power, but still lose to Avalanche – San Bernardino Sun

The Ducks welcome Cam Fowler and Max Comtois back into their roster after Sunday afternoon’s 4-2 loss to the Colorado Avalanche at the Ball Arena in Denver. However, Ryan Getzlaf was unable to play after he tested positive for COVID-19 before the game and was included in NHL protocol.

Fowler sat out the Ducks’ loss Friday to the Vegas Golden Knights with an unspecified upper-body injury during their loss Wednesday to the Vancouver Canucks. Comtois has escaped tournament protocol and has played only his second game since hand surgery in early November.

Getzlaf’s absence forced the Ducks’ coach Dallas Eakins to shuffle his lines, with Derek Grant moving up the center of their front line with Rickard Rakell and Jakob Silfverberg on the flanks. Comtois slid from the left flank, forming a line with center Isac Lundestrom and right wing Troy Terry.

Sonny Milano, Sam Steel and Vinni Lettieri formed a line-up for the second straight game, following Steel’s return from the tournament’s protocol on Friday. Nicolas Deslauriers, Sam Carrick and Buddy Robinson made up the fourth line-up, which scored the Ducks’ first goal on Sunday.
