Teemu Selanne will be a healthy scratch in one of the Anaheim Ducks' next three games.
Selanne has played in all 43 of the Ducks games this season and coach Bruce Boudreau wants him to get a breather before the playoffs start. "It's my decision when it's going to be," Selanne said. "It's hard because I still like to play every night. Pretty much before the start of the playoffs, [Bruce] said you have to take one game off. That's fine. But the mind process ... it's hard. Bruce is good. He told me, 'I'm not going to force you. I know you. But I want you to take one game off.' I'm a little sore too. Let's see how I feel." Selanne might opt to sit out on Friday, but he hasn't decided yet.
