Last-place teams square off as Ducks take on Senators

Anaheim (2-5) at Ottawa (2-3-1) 7:00 p.m. EDT

OTTAWA (Ticker) -- With a little help from his offense,

Jean-Sebastien Giguere carried the Anaheim Ducks to their second

win in three games

Giguere and the Ducks will hope to benefit a few more scoring

chances when they take on the Ottawa Senators on Friday.

Anaheim jumped out to a 2-0 lead against Toronto on Wednesday,

but only recorded four shots in the second period - and none in

the third.

The 2002-03 Conn Smythe winner, Giguere made 36 saves and turned

aside both shootout attempts as the Ducks escaped with a 3-2

victory.

On the other hand, Ottawa was held to just three shots in the

first period against Florida on Wednesday before notching 26

shots in the third period in a 3-1 loss to the Panthers.

Backup goaltender Alex Auld may get the start in net for the

Senators Friday, his second of the season. Auld turned aside 30

shots in Ottawa's 3-1 triumph over the Pittsburgh Penguins on

October 5.

Martin Gerber, who has allowed three goals or more in each of

his five starts, will be in goal when the Senators open a

four-game road trip in Toronto on Saturday.
