NHL Preview from The Sports Network



Wednesday, February 1st (All times eastern)

San Jose Sharks (23-19-7) at Mighty Ducks of Anaheim (24-17-10), 10:30 p.m.

(Sports Network) - The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim aim for their third four-game winning streak of the season tonight, as they welcome the San Jose Sharks to the Arrowhead Pond.

The last two victories during the Mighty Ducks' recent stretch have come against the rival Los Angeles Kings.

On Monday, Teemu Selanne scored two goals and registered the 1,000th point of his career, as the Mighty Ducks edged the Kings, 4-3, to sweep the home-and-home series at the Pond. Scott Niedermayer scored the game-winner in overtime for Anaheim.

Ryan Getzlaf notched his eighth goal of the year and Ilya Bryzgalov made 29 saves for the Ducks, who also won four in a row from October 26-November 1 and from November 25-December 3.

Andy McDonald and Niedermayer tallied two assists each in Monday's win for Anaheim, which also defeated Los Angeles 6-2 on Saturday.

Selanne, who became the 70th player in NHL history to reach the 1,000-point plateau, has points in seven straight games. He has five goals and seven helpers during the run.

The Ducks' next game will be Saturday in San Jose, but the Sharks will host Minnesota on Thursday.

Tonight's game will complete a three-game road trip for the Sharks, who have dropped three in a row. The latest setback came Monday in Dallas, as Jason Arnott scored with 35.3 seconds left in overtime to lift the Stars to a 3-2 victory.

Alyn McCauley and Jonathan Cheechoo notched goals for San Jose, while Evgeni Nabokov made 25 saves in the defeat.

The Sharks and Ducks have split four matchups this season, but San Jose has won six of the last eight meetings overall. The Sharks have also won in eight of their last 11 trips to Anaheim.
