Bruins continue homestand against Ducks

Anaheim (30-27-5) at Boston (41-12-8), 7:00 pm EST

BOSTON (Ticker) -- A trip back to the TD Banknorth Center

appeared to cure the Boston Bruins' woes.

The Eastern Conference-leading Bruins will look for another

dominating performance when they continue their season-long,

six-game homestand against the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday.

After posting a 1-3-1 record over a five-game road trip, Boston

cruised to a 6-1 victory over the Florida Panthers. Rookie

Byron Bitz scored two goals and Michael Ryder recorded a goal

and an assist in his return from a seven-game absence.

Patrice Bergeron and defensemen Aaron Ward and Mark Stuart

netted goals while Stephane Yelle and All-Star Marc Savard

notched two assists apiece for the Bruins, who had dropped six

of their last seven contests.

Boston, which owns a 20-4-4 record at home this season, has not

hosted the Ducks since January 16, 2006.

The Ducks, who are in the midst of a six-game road swing, are

coming off a 3-2 triumph over the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday.

Teemu Selanne and Mike Brown collected unassisted goals and Todd

Marchant added a shorthanded tally for Anaheim, which has won

back-to-back games following three straight losses.
