Ducks hope to regain scoring touch in Dallas

Ryan Getzlaf has scored three goals and nine assists this season.
Dallas, TX ( - The Anaheim Ducks will try to get their struggling offense on track Friday night as they visit a Dallas Stars club that has given up its fair share of goals this season. The Ducks have lost two of three since winning seven in a row, held to just two goals over that span. They shut out the Chicago Blackhawks 1-0 on Tuesday, but were then blanked 2-0 by the St. Louis Blues two nights later. Dallas has been idle since its own loss to the Blues on Tuesday, a 4-3 overtime setback. St. Louis got the winner on the power play as Tyler Seguin was called for high-sticking just 14 seconds into the bonus frame. The Ducks have lost three of their last four to the Stars overall as well as five of seven and nine of their last 13 in Dallas.  Full Story
