The Ducks are 15-2-4 in their last 21 games.

The Anaheim Ducks look for continued road trip success on Tuesday night as they face the Tampa Bay Lightning at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. Anaheim is 4-0-2 in the first six games of their eight-game road trip and is 6-0-3 in their last nine games. The last time the Ducks lost in regulation was February 1.

Looking for their 10th straight game with a point on Tuesday, the Ducks (25-24-10) are five points out of a playoff spot in the Western Conference.

"It's nice to get to the 60-point plateau because then you can at least see the guys in the distance," coach Bruce Boudreau told the Associated Press. "We always believed that we're there. We don't really care what anybody else thinks about it. As long as we believe we're there, we're OK."

Ducks goaltender Jonas Hiller was named the NHL's First Star of the Week on Monday after compiling a 3-0-1 record last week with a 0.98 goals against average and a .961 save percentage.

The Lightning have won their last two games. This is the only meeting of the year between these two teams.

Tuesday's 4:30 p.m. PST game will be televised by Prime Ticket. For more news and analysis of Ducks hockey, be sure to read Anaheim Calling.
