John Gibson injured in Ducks’ loss to the Kraken

ANAHEIM — Not only did the Ducks lose for the fifth time in six games – this time a 5-4 defeat to the Seattle Kraken – their franchise goalie John Gibson left the game with an injury early in the third period on Sunday at Honda Center.

Gibson was injured on the Kraken’s go-ahead goal, by Daniel Sprong, at 3:41 of the third period, breaking a 4-4 tie, when he tried to make a sprawling save on Sprong. Ducks defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk landed on Gibson at the top of the crease after contact with Ryan Donato.

Gibson immediately headed back to the dressing room, and backup Anthony Stolarz came on in relief. Stolarz has come on in relief of Gibson three times this season but it has always been at the start of the period. Gibson faced 19 shots and made 14 saves.
