Ducks Vs. Blue Jackets: Anaheim Looks For Rare Consecutive Wins

The Ducks have not won consecutive games since October 17.

The Anaheim Ducks try for something they haven't had in nearly three months, wins in consecutive games, as they host the Columbus Blue Jackets Sunday night in a battle of the two worst teams in the National Hockey League. No team is within six points of them, as the Ducks currently hold a narrow advantage with 28 points (11-22-6) compared to 27 for Columbus (11-24-5).

Anaheim is coming off a win Friday night against the New York Islanders, and looking for their first consecutive wins since they completed a four-game winning streak on October 17. The Ducks have had six chances since then to put together a string of two straight wins, but have been denied each time:
