Giguere, Ducks look to bounce back against Panthers

Nov 9, 2008 - 9:17 AM Florida (4-8-1) at Anaheim (9-6-1), 8:00 pm EDT

ANAHEIM, California (Ticker) -- The Anaheim Ducks aren't going to let a tough loss put a damper on the hot streak that had eased the sting of a poor start.

Looking to bounce back from a defeat, the Ducks can win for the ninth time in 11 games when they host the struggling Florida Panthers on Sunday.

After beginning with one win in its first six games, Anaheim won eight of nine before falling to the Pacific Division rival Dallas Stars, 5-2, on Friday. Goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere was pulled midway through the second period in favor of backup Jonas Hiller after putting the Ducks in a 4-1 hole.

The owner of a 2.12 goals-against average last season, Giguere has given up four or more goals eight times this season over 14 starts and has a shoddy 3.06 GAA.

Similar to the Ducks' start to the season, things could not be any worse for the Panthers. They have dropped six straight, with half of those losses coming by one goal. To make matters worse, they have scored just nine times in that span.

Florida was burned by its former captain, Olli Jokinen, and the Phoenix Coyotes, 4-1, in its latest game on Saturday. The Panthers dealt Jokinen, their top scorer every season since 2002-03, to Phoenix in June after the Finn became the franchise's all-time points leader with 419.
