ANAHEIM, California (Ticker) -- The Anaheim Ducks can extend their win streak to six games when they host the Los Angeles Kings in a rematch from Saturday.

The Ducks, whose 46 points are the most in the NHL, registered their fifth straight victory with a 4-3 triumph over the Kings on Saturday.

Teemu Selanne scored two goals and added an assist to pace the Ducks while Rob Niedermayer celebrated his 800th career game with a goal. Selanne has nine goals and 10 assists in his last 11 games.

But the Ducks had to hold on for dear life at the end for the win. They led, 4-1, with two minutes to go in the third period before the Kings made it interesting.

Los Angeles defenseman Rob Blake scored on a power play at 18:10 to cut Anaheim's lead to 4-2 before Dustin Brown cut the lead to 4-3 with just 33 seconds left.

But the Kings could not get the equalizer and lost their second straight despite outshooting Anaheim, 43-29.

Travis Moen scored the other Anaheim goal while Scott Thornton had the other Kings tally.

No one has shouted yet.
Be the first!
