Blackhawks start long road trip in Anaheim

Chicago (25-12-8) at Anaheim (24-21-5), 10:00 pm EST

ANAHEIM, California (Ticker) -- The Chicago Blackhawks have not

had much success in California recently.

The Blackhawks will try to change that trend Wednesday, when

they start a season-long, eight-game road trip against the

Anaheim Ducks.

Chicago, which lost its previous two contests before the

All-Star break, owns a 5-17-6 record at Anaheim, Los Angeles and

San Jose over the last five seasons. The Blackhawks have just

one win in their previous nine road games against the Ducks.

After visiting Anaheim, Chicago will stay in the West for the

next five games, facing the Kings, Sharks, Oilers, Flames and

Canucks before concluding the trip with the Thrashers and Blues.

The Blackhawks will play just one home contest before February

22, facing 11 road dates over that stretch.

Chris Kunitz and Corey Perry scored two goals apiece as the

Ducks tallied four times in the second period Tuesday en route

to a 7-3 triumph over the Phoenix Coyotes.

Bobby Ryan extended his goal-scoring streak to four games and

Rob Niedermayer and Travis Moen also scored for Anaheim, which

won for just the third time in nine games.
