Ducks look to rebound from rare loss against Wild

Nov 12, 2006 - 3:17 PM Minnesota (11-4-0) at Anaheim (12-1-4) 8:00 pm EST

ANAHEIM, California (Ticker) - The Anaheim Ducks finally found out what it felt like to lose a game in regulation. Now they get a chance to respond, as they host the Minnesota Wild on Sunday.

Sunday's meeting is the third between the two clubs this season. The Ducks defeated the Wild, 2-1, on October 20, and the Wild won, 3-2, in overtime on October 27. Anaheim set a NHL record by going 16 games to open the season (12-0-4) without a regulation loss before dropping a 3-0 decision to the Calgary Flames on Friday.

The Ducks peppered Calgary with 37 shots but could not get the puck past goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff.

The Wild come off a wild 3-2 shootout victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. Todd White scored the winner when he beat Los Angeles goaltender Mathieu Garon in the sixth round of the shootout.

Brian Rolston and Kurtis Foster scored in regulation for the Wild, who are 1-1-0 after two games of a five-game road trip.
