The Ducks have lost four of five and will be without five key role players tonight. Forwards Ted Drury, Kevin Todd and Warren Rychel and defensemen Ken Baumgartner and David Karpa are out because of injuries. Drury, who has a broken right wrist, and Todd, who has elbow tendinitis, could play, but Wilson wants to wait until they’re improved.
