The Anaheim Ducks head to the Lone Star State on Monday night looking to snap their 11-game road losing streak, facing the Dallas Stars at the American Airlines Center. The team is 2-5-1 under new head coach Bruce Boudreau.
The Ducks are 28th in the 30-team NHL in goal scoring, averaging just 2.34 goals per game. But poor play by the goaltenders have helped fuel the road losing streak and a 5-17-5 record overall in their last 27 games. "There was a couple others where I didn't think the goalie did a good job of keeping us in the game when he needed to keep us in the game," Boudreau told Davis Harper of NHL.com. "They've got to make those saves."
Teemu Selanne had two assists on Saturday night in his return to Winnipeg after 16 years away. The 41-year old Selanne has at least one point in each of his last eight games, with two goals and nine assists during that span. With 10 goals and 23 assists on the season, Selanne leads the Ducks in points.
The Ducks lost 3-1 to the Stars in Anaheim on October 21 in their only previous matchup this season. At 18-12-1 on the season, Dallas is in first place in the Pacific Division.
Monday's 5 p.m. PST game will be televised by Versus. For more Ducks hockey news and information, be sure to read Anaheim Calling.
