Ducks hope to finish perfect road trip

Anaheim (4-5-0) at Columbus (3-5-0), 7:00 p.m. EDT

COLUMBUS, Ohio (Ticker) -- The Anaheim Ducks have used a
four-game road trip to find their offense and turn their slow
start to the season around.

The Ducks aim to win their fourth straight road game on Monday
when they visit the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Anaheim dropped its first four games this season but has found
some momentum away from home.

The Ducks defeated Toronto and Ottawa and recorded a 6-4 victory
over Montreal on Saturday on the first three games of their
trip. The team has totaled 13 goals over the winning streak
after scoring 13 over its first six games.

Balance has been a key for the Ducks as 14 different players
have scored a goal with defenseman Francois Beauchemin leading
the team with three tallies.

Columbus, on the other hand, is struggling to find offense as
the team has scored one goal in each of its last two games -
both losses.

The Blue Jackets lost, 2-1, to Minnesota on Saturday and also
lost goaltender Pascal Leclaire to an ankle injury in the second
period. Fredrik Norrena will get the start if Leclaire is
unable to play.

Anaheim won the last three meetings between the teams last
season.
