Ducks rest up and await winner of Oilers-Sharks

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) A first-round sweep opens the door for some welcome news for the Anaheim Ducks: a bit of rest and maybe some help on the bench.

Injured defensemen Sami Vatanen and Cam Fowler are closing in on a return to the Ducks, who haven't lost in regulation in 18 games dating to March 10. The Ducks beat Calgary in four games to open the playoffs despite largely playing without two of their top three defensemen.

While coach Randy Carlyle didn't predict Thursday whether Vatanen or Fowler would be ready for the second-round opener next week, he expects both to be available at some point in the series. Vatanen has an upper-body injury, while Fowler has been out since incurring a knee-to-knee hit from Calgary captain Mark Giordano late in the regular season.
