News: Fowler picked up an assist in his 23:37 of ice time in Wednesday's Game 6 loss to the Blackhawks.
Impact: Fowler has delivered a four-point series for the Ducks thus far, generating a goal and three helpers. Expect him to rank among the team leaders in minutes for Saturday's series-deciding Game 7 in Anaheim.
News: Maroon potted a power-play goal in Wednesday's Game 6 loss to the Blackhawks.
Impact: Maroon has been outstanding all postseason for the Ducks, but he's really ratcheted up his production in the Western Conference Finals. Through six games, he's recorded three goals on 20 shot attempts, while also posting sizable hit totals on the defensive end.
News: Thompson picked up an assist in Wednesday's Game 6 loss to the Blackhawks.
Impact: Thompson isn't typically one of Anaheim's more productive scorers, but he's been able to come away with a goal and four assists thus far in the series. Though it's been a nice run for the 30-year-old, his modest track record as a point producer suggests the Ducks shouldn't bank on him driving their offense in Saturday's Game 7.
News: Stoner registered a third-period goal in Wednesday's Game 6 loss to the Blackhawks.
Impact: Stoner's first goal of the postseason didn't come without controversy. Teammate Jakob Silfverberg appeared to run into goalie Corey Crawford's glove as Stoner was about to fire off a slap shot, but officials didn't call interference on the play. Nonetheless, the goal didn't affect the final outcome in what was a well-deserved Chicago victory. The series heads back to Anaheim on Saturday for Game 7.
News: Andersen allowed four goals on 22 shots in Wednesday's Game 6 loss in Chicago.
Impact: Although this was Andersen's first regulation loss of the postseason, questions have arisen regarding his play in the past few games. Andersen is sporting a weak .856 save percentage in the past three contests against the Blackhawks, where he's been beaten 13 times. While Andersen is not necessarily in danger of losing the crease, he will certainly need to turn in a better performance if his Ducks are to have any hope of winning Saturday's decisive Game 7.
News: Andersen will be between the pipes for Wednesday's Game 6 against the Blackhawks, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Impact: Andersen was dreadful in Monday's Game 5, allowing four goals on only 28 shots, but with the Ducks managing to secure the win, coach Bruce Boudreau won't consider a change in goal. Though his performance has cratered a bit in the Western Conference Finals, Andersen owns a respectable 2.06 GAA and .925 save percentage overall on the postseason.
