Anaheim, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf will be ready to go for Friday's Game 2 of his club's Western Conference quarterfinal series against Dallas.

In the final seconds of Anaheim's 4-3 series-opening victory Wednesday, Getzlaf was hit flush in the face by a puck shot off the stick of Stars forward Tyler Seguin.

The club revealed on Thursday that Getzlaf suffered a deep facial laceration and required multiple stitches to close the cut, but that x-rays were negative.

"He has no one to impress. He has a wife and kids. I think he looks good. This is playoff hockey," quipped Ducks defenseman Ben Lovejoy.

Getzlaf, a Stanley Cup winner in 2007 with the franchise, collected a goal and assist in the triumph, boosting his career playoff numbers to 22 goals and 39 assists in 70 postseason appearances.
