Team captain Ryan Getzlaf has been using a walking boot since suffering a right leg injury during the Ducks' victory Wednesday over the Dallas Stars, coach Bruce Boudreau said before his team's 4-3 shootout victory over the Kings on Sunday at the Honda Center. Getzlaf's status for tonight's game against the Edmonton Oilers won't be known he until he and Boudreau have the same morning conversation they've had since Thursday. Getzlaf didn't play in Friday's loss to the Stars or Sunday's win over the Kings. "I'm not giving him any days off," Boudreau said. "If he can play, he's playing. That's it. We need him. So, when he's ready to play, he'll play. It's not Bruce giving him a day off because he's hurting. It's Bruce, saying, `Ryan, can you play? Yep, OK, then you're playing."'
