Los Angeles (16-13-6-4) at Anaheim (13-17-5-5) 10:30 pm EST

ANAHEIM, California (Ticker) -- The Los Angeles Kings try to halt a season-high eight-game winless streak and continue their recent success against the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim when the Pacific Division teams play the first of three January meetings.

The Kings are 6-2-2 in the last 10 meetings with the Mighty Ducks and the clubs are playing for the first time this season. They also meet twice in February and once in March.

Los Angeles salvaged a point Saturday, when Martin Straka scored with 21 seconds left in the third period for a 2-2 tie with the Dallas Stars. Straka has six goals and four assists in 15 games since being acquired from Pittsburgh on November 30 for left wing Sergei Anshakov and defenseman Martin Strbak

Cristobal Huet made 26 saves Saturday as the Kings moved to 0-2-5-1 in their last eight games.

Anaheim is 0-2-1 in its last three games after Monday's 2-2 tie with the Stars. Rob Niedermayer scored a power-play goal midway through the third period as the Ducks blew an early lead before earning the point.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 21 saves against Dallas and is 6-16-3 this season. He is 4-4-3 with a 2.59 goals-against average against the Kings.
