Dallas, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Anaheim Ducks forward Teemu Selanne will not be in the lineup as his club takes on the Stars for Game 4 of their Western Conference quarterfinal on Wednesday night.
"Bruce told me before practice yesterday. We lost last game, so a lot of the times the lineup is going to be different," Selanne said. "I'm obviously disappointed right now, but it's Bruce's decision and we'll go from there."
Selanne has contributed one assist in the first three games, and was held scoreless during a 3-0 loss in Monday's contentious Game 3 that provided Dallas with its first win in the best-of-seven set.
Emerson Etem will take the 43-year-old's spot in the lineup, which will be his first appearance in these playoffs. The 21-year-old posted seven goals and 11 points in 29 games for the Ducks during the regular season.
In addition, Mark Fistric will start in place of defenseman Stephane Robidas, who sustained a fractured right leg in the previous contest.
