Description: Ducks 20-year-old goaltender John Gibson has saved 67 of 70 shots in the last two games against the Kings. Anaheim won both games and leads 3-2 in its second-round series against Los Angeles.
Insight: Gibson made three appearances with the Ducks all season and was starting for Anaheim's AHL team just last week, but the team needed a starting goalie after Frederik Andersen suffered a lower-body injury. Gibson had a shutout Saturday and saved 39 of 42 shots in a 4-3 win Monday night.

Description: The Anaheim Ducks are starting 20-year-old John Gibson in net at Los Angeles in Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals Saturday night after Frederik Andersen suffered a lower-body injury in Game 3.
Insight: The Ducks lost all confidence in Jonas Hiller after he was shelled in March and April. Gibson was the top North American goalie available in the 2011 NHL Draft and was selected 39th overall by Anaheim. He had a .919 SV% in the regular season and a .955 SV% in the postseason for Norfolk of the AHL this season, and now he'll be thrown into the fire of the Stanley Cup Playoffs with the Ducks down 2-1.
