ANAHEIM, California (Ticker) -- Saddled with the league's worst record, the St. Louis Blues have had difficulty stringing victories together.

The Blues try to win consecutive games for only the second time this season when they face the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim on Wednesday.

St. Louis is last in the league in wins (7), points (18), 29th in goals (84) and has not won consecutive games since November 16-19. Only Columbus has fewer goals than the Blues.

Mike Sillinger scored twice and goaltender Jason Bacashihua made 33 saves for his first career victory to lead St. Louis in Tuesday's 5-4 triumph over the Phoenix Coyotes.

Anaheim returns home after losing for the fifth time in six road outings in Tuesday's 4-2 defeat to the San Jose Sharks. Teemu Selanne scored his 17th goal and Petr Sykora added his seventh for the Mighty Ducks.

Netminder Jean-Sebastien Giguere gets another opportunity to record his 100th career victory. Although he was lifted in the third period against San Jose, he is 4-0-1 with a 2.17 goals-against average in his last five home encounters against the Blues.

Selanne scored twice when Anaheim evened the season series with St. Louis at one game each with a 6-4 victory in their last meeting on October 28.
