NHL playoffs: Ducks send goaltender Jonas Hiller home

April 19, 2011 |  2:28 pm

Jonas Hiller, the Ducks' No. 1 goaltender, was sent home from Nashville because he is continuing to suffer from symptoms of vertigo, the team announced.

Hiller has played only 12 minutes since Feb. 13 and was not expected to play in the Ducks’ first-round playoff series against the Nashville Predators.

Ray Emery has started the last two games in goal after Dan Ellis started in the opener against the Predators.
