Pittsburgh (7-4-0) at Anaheim (10-0-4) 10:00 pm EST
ANAHEIM, California (Ticker) -- The Anaheim Ducks will try to
remain the NHL's only unbeaten club in regulation time when they
host the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday.
Anaheim is one of only three teams in NHL history to record a point in at least 14 consecutive games to start a season. Good news for the Ducks -- both of the other teams went on to win the Stanley Cup.
Anaheim became the only team yet to lose in regulation on
Saturday when the Buffalo Sabres were defeated by the Toronto
Maple Leafs, 4-1.
The Ducks looked impressive in their 6-2 rout of the Phoenix
Coyotes on Friday. Defenseman Chris Pronger and Teemu Selanne
each had a goal and two assists for the Ducks, who revived their
struggling power play by converting on 3-of-7 chances with the
Chris Kunitz and blue-liner Sean O'Donnell each scored an had an
assist for Anaheim, which has not hosted Pittsburgh since the
2002-03 campaign. The clubs did not meet last season.
The Penguins look for a triumph to conclude their four-game road
trip on a positive note. After whipping the Philadelphia
Flyers, 8-2, and downing the Los Angeles Kings, 4-3, Pittsburgh
dropped a 3-2 decision to the San Jose Sharks on Saturday.
Michel Oullete and Dominic Moore scored for Pittsburgh, which
went scoreless in seven power-play opportunities. Rookie
sensation Evgeni Malkin, who tied a league record by tallying in
his first six games, was held scoreless on three shots.
