GAME PREVIEW
Through the first few weeks of the season, the Anaheim Ducks struggled to find the win column and forwards Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry and Teemu Selanne had trouble cracking the scoresheet.

It's probably not a coincidence the team is surging with the trio establishing itself offensively.

The Ducks and their scoring leaders look to keep their momentum going on Tuesday against the Pacific Division rival Los Angeles Kings.

Anaheim (7-5-1) started the season with four straight losses and five in its first six games.

During that stretch, Getzlaf and Perry - who paced the Ducks with 82 and 54 points, respectively, last season - were held to one assist apiece. Selanne, meanwhile, managed just one goal in his first seven games after totaling 12 goals and 23 points in 26 regular-season contests in 2007-08.

However, Anaheim has since gone 6-0-1. Getzlaf, Perry and Selanne have combined for 14 goals and 38 points in those seven games.

The group collectively earned the NHL's first star of the week, marking the first time any combination of teammates has received the honor since the award's inception in 1981-82, according to the Ducks' official Web site.

"When you have the amount of skill that they have, those things will eventually turn the tide in their direction," coach Randy Carlyle said. "As long as they continue to work hard to get inside and control that puck, they can be an effective group."

Getzlaf had a goal and an assist, while Perry and Selanne each added an assist in a 3-2 victory over visiting Calgary on Sunday, helping Anaheim bounce back from Friday's exhausting 13-round shootout loss to Vancouver.

"We worked through it well as a group and rebounded tremendously," said Getzlaf, who is second on the Ducks with 10 assists and 14 points. "That's the big thing we are doing now, everyone is working and everyone is contributing. We're a confident team right now, and we're playing like it."

The trio hopes to carry that confidence into Tuesday's game versus local rival Los Angeles (3-6-1). Getzlaf has five goals and three assists in his last six games against the Kings, while Perry has four goals and three assists in his last eight games versus them.

Selanne has fared even better, 43 goals and 97 points - his most against any opponent - in 78 career matchups against Los Angeles, including a goal in the Ducks' 6-3 loss at Staples Center on Oct. 14.

Since that game against Anaheim, Los Angeles has lost four straight games and five of seven. A 3-2 defeat to Calgary on Saturday dropped the Kings to 0-2-1 on their season-high seven-game homestand.

Rookie Oscar Moller scored twice while Alexander Frolov and Kyle Quincey each had two assists for the Kings, who are trying to avoid their first five-game slide since going 0-3-2 from Feb. 23-March 4.

"It was one of those games I felt like we should have won," said Kings captain Dustin Brown, whose team failed to capitalize on a 36-21 shooting advantage.

Los Angeles has lost 14 of 21 games to Anaheim since Jan. 28, 2006 - a span in which Ducks goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere is 11-4-2 with a 2.87 GAA in 17 games. Giguere made 34 saves on Sunday, improving to 5-0-0 with a 3.17 GAA in his last six starts

3-0 ducks. Ersberg stands on his head, but with the line juggling the kings cant find the net yet again.

I'm leaning towards this prediction too, I'm not very confident.

Hopefully the kids prove us wrong.

I think the Kings can rebound. They traditionally play the Ducks tough even in terrible seasons. It won't be a bloodbath.

If anyone smuggles in a hammer and smashes the rinkside camera, you get a special prize.

Our Father, which art in Heaven. Hallowed be thy Name. Thy Kings come. Thy will be done, on ice as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our lapses, as we forgive them that score against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thy is the King's, and power, and the glory, for ever and ever.
Amen.
