Hossa, Red Wings try to keep streaks alive

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

this season.

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

Monday.

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.
