The Ducks announced defenseman Eric Brewer suffered a broken bone in his foot and would be sidelined for up to six weeks, goaltender Jason LaBarbera had a broken bone in his hand and would be out up to three weeks and goalie Ilya Bryzgalov would join the team for a tryout.

Or as it’s known in Duckdom, Wednesday.

Never a dull moment.

There also was a game to be played, one the Ducks would win 5-4 in a shootout over the Philadelphia Flyers at the Honda Center. With all the injuries and illnesses that have turned the Ducks into the skating wounded, it’s important to recognize they’re tied for the NHL’s overall lead.

Jakob Silfverberg and Corey Perry scored in the shootout for the Ducks, and goalie Frederik Andersen stopped Claude Giroux after Sean Couturier scored. Patrick Maroon’s power-play goal gave the Ducks a 4-3 lead late in the third period, but the Flyers’ Wayne Simmonds tied it 4-all at 19:57.

These Ducks are nothing if not resilient, however.

“We’ve been battling since training camp, with everyone being hurt,” Maroon said. “We’ve been going hard through it. This is a good group of guys. That’s what bring us together as a team. It’s good that we have a good call-up system, too. We’ve got guys who can fill in.”

No question, the Ducks have their fair share of shortcomings and they were on display again during an up-and-down performance against the struggling but desperate Flyers (8-13-4). Take the second period, for instance, a 20-minute display of all that is good and bad about the Ducks (16-6-5).
