Flyers continue season-long road trip against Ducks

Philadelphia (20-10-7) at Anaheim (19-15-4), 10:00 pm EST

ANAHEIM, California (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia Flyers will

continue their season-long, six-game road swing Friday when they

visit the Anaheim Ducks.

After losing the first two stops on the trip, the Flyers bounced

back with a 3-2 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday.

Jeff Carter, who leads the NHL with 27 goals and ranks first on

the club with 43 points, scored a goal and setup another in the

victory.

Philadelphia will be without left wing Simon Gagne, who suffered

a shoulder injury 15 seconds into Tuesday's win.

Gagne is enjoying one of the best campaigns of his career with

18 goals and 22 assists, but will be out at least the next week.

The Ducks have lost four of their last five games.

Anaheim, which has dropped four of five games, is coming off a

2-0 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. It was the first time

the Ducks had been blanked at home since December 2, 2007.
