NY Rangers (20-11-2) at Anaheim (17-11-3), 10:00 pm EST

ANAHEIM, California (Ticker) -- Before heading out on a
five-game road trip, the Anaheim Ducks will look to continue
their dominance at "The Pond."

The Ducks are seeking their sixth consecutive home victory
Tuesday when they host the New York Rangers.

Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, Brendan Morrison and Bobby Ryan
scored Sunday as the Ducks handed the Minnesota Wild their fifth
consecutive loss with a 4-2 triumph.

Defenseman Chris Pronger and Chris Kunitz notched two assists
apiece for Anaheim, which owns a 10-6-2 record at home this
season.

The Rangers bring some momentum across the country after
defeating the Carolina Hurricanes, 3-2, in a shootout on
Saturday.

Henrik Lunqvist turned away five shooters and Chris Drury scored
the lone goal in the bonus format for New York, which has a
league-high eight wins in the shootout this season.

Lundqvist, who made 29 saves before the shootout, is 17-9-2 with
a 2.54 goals-against average and .913 save percentage on the
season. He is yet to have a shutout this campaign after posting
10 blankings in 2007-08.
