A few highlights coming out of today’s morning skates:
Look, everyone loves Teemu Selanne. Everyone wants to see him end his brilliant NHL career on a high. But his lack of foot speed has really caught up to him in the Ducks’ series against the Stars and he was particularly ineffective on Monday night in Dallas. Coach Bruce Boudreau has to worry about winning games, not Selanne’s legacy. This was the right call for his team.
In any case, prepare for a barrage on online vitriol:
Selanne learned yesterday that he wouldn't be playing. Said only other playoff game he's been scratched was in 2004 with Colorado.—

Could the captain be back in uniform for Detroit in Game 4?
