Rakell to Miss Game 5 with Lower Body Injury

It just keeps getting worse for both teams in the NHL's Western Conference Final.

Anahiem announced that winger Rickard Rakell will miss Game 5 with a lower body. He joins Ryan Johansen and Mike Fisher and marquee names that started Game 4 but will not play Game 5.

Rakell was tied for second on the Ducks with 13 points, and he leads the team in plus-minus (+13) and is tied for the team lead in power play points with four.

From the looks of things, Nicolas Kerdiles will draw in at forward for the Ducks, and the top line will be comprised of Ryan Getzlaf, Nick Ritchie and Corey Perry.
