08:03 AM ET 02.27 | NHL fans may only now be getting to know Viktor Fasth, who on Monday lost his first game in nine starts. Before he became an overnight sensation, [Fasth] wasn't certain he would get anything more than workload scraps when the Ducks were playing back-to-back games. ... Hiller suffered a lower body injury Feb. 8 at Dallas, and Fasth won four more starts on the road to forever alter the goalie rotation and help the Ducks (13-3-1), who enter Wednesday night's home game against Nashville tied for the second-most points in the NHL. "He's come in and worked his rear end off and the guys notice that," Ducks General Manager Bob Murray said. "That's a huge thing. Who wants to get hit with all those pucks in practice?"

Speaking of back up goalies, what happened to Voukon last night?

I think Fasth would be a good fit in Ottawa.

I think Ottawa is ok, as long as Bishop realises his role

I'm not talking about on the ice Spiny. I'd just love to hear the negotiations.

Good news for Ducks fans. Fasth is under contract until 2015. The bad news for Ducks fans is that he already broke the age barrier, i.e. over 30 years old. He played in 69 games last year in Sweden so I am looking for the adrenaline factor to come to an end at some point. I think its a great story but not the answer the Ducks are looking for long term.
