ANAHEIM, California (Ticker) -- John Grahame has made Nikolai Khabibulin's departure a non-issue for the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Grahame aims to extend his personal franchise-record winning streak to 10 games Wednesday when the Lightning visit the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim.

The Lightning have won six straight games and are once again flashing their championship form behind the stellar play of Grahame, who needed to make just 13 saves Saturday to post his ninth straight win in a 3-1 triumph over Nashville.

The victory snapped a tie with Khabibulin - who signed with Chicago as a free agent this offseason - for the longest winning streak in franchise history.

Martin St. Louis and Dave Andreychuck each collected a goal and an assist for Tampa Bay, which is on its longest winning streak since an eight-game run from February 23-March 6, 2004.

Anaheim is coming off a 3-2 setback vs. Toronto on Monday as the team failed to score in eight power-play chances to fall to 1-for-22 in their last four games.

Rob Niedermayer and Teemu Selanne scored for the Ducks, who have dropped three of four following a four-game winning streak.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 31 saves in Anaheim's 2-0 victory on December 29, 2003 in the last meeting between the teams.
