The Ducks beat the Hurricanes 3-2 in overtime on February 8 in Anaheim.

After 14 days and eight games, the Anaheim Ducks finally end their longest road trip of the season Thursday night, battling the Carolina Hurricanes at RBC Center in Raleigh. The Ducks are 4-1-2 so far on the trip, but had their nine-game point streak snapped on Tuesday with a loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

"We let two points slip away," Bobby Ryan told NHL.com after Tuesday's loss. "It's tough. I think we threw everything we had at them late and couldn't find a way to beat their goalie. You get behind the eight ball early and it's tough to claw back, especially this time of year."

The Ducks (25-25-10) are six points out of a playoff spot in the Western Conference after going 15-3-4 in their last 22 games. The Ducks beat the Hurricanes 3-2 in overtime in Anaheim on February 8, the last home game for Anaheim.

Carolina (23-26-11) has won three of their last four games and has a point in seven of their last eight contests.

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