Penguins hope to continue upward trend vs. Ducks

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Anaheim Ducks host the Pittsburgh Penguins in the second of two meetings this year Wednesday night. Goaltender John Gibson earned a shutout as the Ducks defeated the Penguins in their earlier game, Dec. 23 in Pittsburgh.

Anaheim (20-16-9) lost to Colorado on Monday, but has won six of its last 10 games (6-3-1). Pittsburgh (24-19-3) rides in on a four-game winning streak. The Penguins have won six of their past 10.

The teams each have one player making news in the past week. For the Penguins, Phil Kessel was named NHL Third Star of the Week for the Jan. 8-14 period. He gained five points in two games (2-3-5). Both goals were game-winners. Four times this year, Kessel has notched three points in a game, including against the Detroit Red Wings on Jan. 13. His game-winner versus the Rangers on Sunday was the 53rd of his career.
