Ducks seek more success at home against Blackhawks

Chicago (10-4-6) at Anaheim (12-8-3), 4:00 pm EST

ANAHEIM, California (Ticker) -- Despite a pedestrian home

record, the Anaheim Ducks have managed to keep their heads above

water in the rough Western Conference.

Seeking their second straight win at Honda Center, the Ducks

host the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday.

Anaheim is 6-6-2 at home, but still has the fourth-best record

in the conference thanks to a current stretch in which it has

three regulation losses in 17 contests.

Owners of a 28-9-4 record at Honda Center last season, the Ducks

snapped a 1-3-1 skid at home with a 4-1 victory over the

Colorado Avalanche on Monday.

Chicago has dropped three straight and has won just twice in its

last 19 games in Anaheim, with 15 losses and two ties. It has

won three of the last 21 meetings overall.

The Blackhawks are coming off a 3-2 shootout loss to the San

Jose Sharks on Wednesday, which ended their three-game win

streak.

Captain Jonathan Toews scored twice after having entered play

with two goals on the season.
