John Gibson turned away 25 of 28 shots during Friday's 3-2 loss to Vancouver. He certainly deserved a better fate on the night but his record falls to 19-11-3 regardless. With Frederik Andersen out with a concussion, Gibson will continue to draw starts for a depleted Anaheim team. The Ducks are already missing David Perron and defensemen Kevin Bieksa and Simon Despres due to injuries, and also announced that Rickard Rakell is on the shelf as well.
