Dostal will guard the home goal versus the Oilers on Wednesday, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.
Dostal will look to snap his three-game losing streak, with his last win coming March 17 versus the Blue Jackets.

Ducks' Lukas Dostal: Struggles against Flames

Ducks' Lukas Dostal: Relieves injured Gibson
Dostal allowed a goal on nine shots over 13:26 of game time after John Gibson (lower body) exited in the third period of Saturday's 6-0 loss to the Oilers.
This was a bad game for the Ducks prior to Gibson's injury, and Dostal didn't do much of anything to make it look better late. Given the time of the season, it's possible Gibson could be shut down even with a minor injury, which could see Dostal take on a starting role for the last two weeks of the campaign. The 22-year-old has given up seven goals on 80 shots over his last three outings, but playing behind a leaky defense won't make him an appealing fantasy option.... See More ... See Less

Dostal put in a good effort, but the Ducks' offense didn't give him enough support for it to matter. This was Dostal's fourth loss in his last six outings (2-2-2). For the season, he's at 4-7-2 with a 3.79 GAA and a .901 save percentage through 14 appearances. He'll likely get one or two more starts over the rest of the season to allow John Gibson some rest late in a lost campaign.... See More ... See Less

Dostal is at 4-6-2 with a 3.85 GAA and an .899 save percentage through 13 appearances this season. He'll likely close out the year as backup to John Gibson as the Ducks head toward a lottery spot in this year's draft.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Lukas Dostal: Tending twine Thursday
Dostal will defend the cage for Thursday's home clash with Winnipeg, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.
Contrary to previous reports, Dostal will make his 13th appearance between the pipes this season, having posted a 4-5-2 record, 3.91 GAA and .899 save percentage in his prior 12 outings.

Ducks' Lukas Dostal: Loses in overtime
Dostal stopped 31 of 34 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Canucks.
Dostal put in a good effort, but he was beat 20 seconds into overtime on J.T. Miller's second goal of the game.
