The Anaheim Ducks will start rookie goalie John Gibson again in Monday's Game 5 against the visiting Los Angeles Kings.

Ducks head coach Bruce Boudreau made the announcement on Sunday, a day after Gibson made 28 saves in his playoff debut in a 2-0, Game 4 victory.

The second-round series between the Southern California rivals is tied at two games each.

Boudreau also said that Matt Beleskey and Frederik Andersson would miss Game 5 with injuries and Jonas Hiller will be the back-up netminder. Mathieu Perreault will be a game-time decision.

The 20-year-old Gibson was recalled by the Ducks from AHL Norfolk on Friday and was named to start ahead of Hiller with the Ducks down 2-1 in the series. Gibson became the youngest player in NHL history to record a shutout in his playoff debut.

Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano was impressed with the rookie netminder.

"I like his style. He has a pretty unique style in net. He's a pretty calm, cool and collected guy," Cogliano told the Ducks website.

Defenceman Bryan Allen was equally impressed with the debut performance. "He came in last night, in a tough situation, and stood on his head. Give him credit for what he did."
