LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- The Anaheim Ducks go for their fifth straight victory when they visit the Kings in Los Angeles on Saturday.

Anaheim, which leads the NHL with 44 points, extended its victory streak to four games on Thursday with a 2-1 road triumph over the Vancouver Canucks in the second of a three-game road trip.

Once again, Ryan Getzlaf was the hero for the Ducks, as he netted his second straight game-winning goal. Getzlaf tallied with 7:34 to go in the third period as Anaheim capitalized on a 5-on-3 power-play situation.

Andy McDonald scored the other Anaheim goal while Jean-Sebastien Giguere recorded 23 saves.

The Kings have won two of their last three games, but have to try to rebound from a 7-4 defeat to the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday. Michael Cammalleri, Derek Armstrong and Craig Conroy scored for Los Angeles in a wild first period where the Coyotes led, 4-3, after the dust had settled.

But Los Angeles only added one more goal when Armstrong tallied in the second period. Goaltender Dan Cloutier again struggled, allowing two goals on five shots before getting replaced by Barry Brust, who made his NHL debut. Brust also was not sharp, allowing four goals on 28 shots.

No one has shouted yet.
Be the first!
