The Ducks have had to deal with their fair share of adversity thus far into the young season, so when the lights inadvertently turned off inside Nationwide Arena this morning, the team didn’t even flinch. After a short group meeting at center ice, the players proceeded to go through their usual morning skate drills. The lights eventually turned back on.

The Ducks announced this morning that the team has recalled center Peter Holland from the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League. Holland had four points (3g/1a) in five games with Norfolk at the time of his recall. The 22-year-old center is expected to replace Mathieu Perreault in tonight’s lineup, after Perreault suffered a sprained left wrist in Friday’s win at Ottawa. The good news is Perreault is day-to-day and hopes to be back in the lineup against Philadelphia (Tuesday) or Boston (Thursday).

Dustin Penner went through a lengthy conditioning skate this morning, but is not expected to play. Penner joined the team in Columbus yesterday and is symptom-free from the concussion he suffered last Sunday on a hit from Dallas forward Ryan Garbutt, who was suspended five games.

Frederik Andersen is expected to get his second consecutive start after a strong performance between the pipes in Ottawa, where he stopped 26-of-27 shots for his second career victory. The 6-foot-4 netminder is 2-0-0 with a 0.60 goals-against average and .980 save percentage.

Viktor Fasth
did not skate this morning. Fasth, who is currently dealing with a lower-body injury, skated prior to games in Toronto and Montreal.
