News: Cam Fowler (leg) will undergo an MRI on Tuesday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports. Analysis: The Ducks have only labeled Cam Fowler's ailment as a leg injury, but Tuesday's MRI should provide some clarity on the matter. Regardless of the outcome of the scan, Fowler would seem unlikely to suit up Tuesday vs. the Capitals.
