Detroit (7-1-1) at Anaheim (5-5-0) 10:00 p.m. EDT
ANAHEIM, California (Ticker) — The offseason acquisition of
Marian Hossa is paying off for the Detroit Red Wings.
Hossa and the Red Wings look to keep a pair of streaks going on
Wednesday when they visit the Anaheim Ducks.
The 29-year-old right wing signed a one-year contract with
Detroit as a free agent after he was traded from the Atlanta
Thrashers to the Pittsburgh Penguins during the 2007-08 season.
The move is working out as Hossa has registered at least one
point in each of his last seven games and eight of nine contests
Hossa has five goals and six assists during the last seven games
and tallied against the Los Angeles Kings on Monday as the Red
Wings extended their current winning streak to five games with a
4-3 shootout victory. The goal was his fifth, tying him for
second on the team.
The Ducks enter the contest on a win streak of their own. Teemu
Selanne snapped a tie with 3:55 remaining in the third period to
net Anaheim a 3-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on
Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf each had a goal and an assist and
goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere collected 30 saves for the
Ducks, who completed their road trip a perfect 4-0-0.
