Ryan Getzlaf of the Anaheim Ducks is apparently “hoping to play” in Game 5 against the Dallas Stars, but it doesn’t sound like we’ll find out anything definitive until tomorrow.
From the Anaheim Ducks:
#NHLDucks coach Bruce Boudreau said Ryan Getzlaf's status for tomorrow's Game 5 is "up in the air" as of now.

He’s listed with an upper-body injury, which may or may not be related to the puck he took in the face in Game 1.
Finishing with 87 points in 77 games, Getzlaf was the NHL’s second-leading scorer, behind only Sidney Crosby, during the regular season.
