one of their best starts in franchise history Alex Tuch Jersey Kids , followed by one of their longest losing streaks.They’ve also played better against teams that are off to good starts this season, and have been sub-par against those that haven’t started out so well.Anaheim will try to continue one of those trends when they host the Minnesota Wild on Friday night at Honda Center.Article continues below ...Minnesota (9-4-2) has won eight of its past 10 following a 3-1 victory at the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday.The Ducks (7-7-3) are 5-3-2 this season against teams that came into Thursday with a winning record, and 2-4-1 against teams that were .500 or below.The Calgary Flames were riding a four-game winning streak when they visited Anaheim on Wednesday night and lost 3-2.“That’s a reward, definitely, after the work we’ve put in the last couple weeks,” Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf said.Getzlaf scored the go-ahead goal against Calgary at 6:33 of the third period, giving him eight points (three goals , five assists) in his past six games.“He was a difference maker, for sure,” Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said.Minnesota second-line center Eric Staal returned Thursday after missing the 4-3 loss at the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday because of an illness, ending a streak of 335 straight appearances.Nino Niederreiter ended a 27-game goalless streak with a power-play score to tie the game 1-1 late in the first period. Zach Parise assisted on Niederreiter’s goal and scored in the second period to break the tie and earn the 700th point of his NHL career.“It’s always nice when you get to the milestones,” he told Fox Sports North.Minnesota goalie Alex Stalock is expected make his first NHL start against the Ducks in his eighth season. Devan Dubnyk played in Los Angeles on Thursday and made 27 saves.It will be Stalock’s fourth start this season.So far, he’s faced the top team in the Eastern Conference (a 5-4 overtime win against the Tampa Bay Lightning), the top team in the West (a 4-2 loss to the Nashville Predators) and Cody Eakin Jersey , most recently, made 34 saves in a 4-3 win at the Edmonton Oilers on Oct. 30.Stalock’s only two appearances against the Ducks came with the San Jose Sharks during the 2013-14 season. Both came in relief of Antti Niemi.Minnesota is 3-0-0 in the second game of back-to-backs this season.Ryan Miller was solid in goal against the Flames, but John Gibson is expected to be back in net against Minnesota.Gibson is 4-1-1 in his career against the Wild with a 1.57 goals-against average and .951 save percentage, his best marks against any team in the Western Conference.Cam Fowler earned the 203rd assist of his NHL career against the Flames, moving him within one of Scott Niedermayer (204) for the all-time franchise lead in assists among defensemen.Fowler had his first career hat trick in a 3-2 overtime victory against the visiting Columbus Blue Jackets on Sunday, ending Anaheim’s seven-game losing streak — one shy of the team record. The Vegas Golden Knights and San Jose Sharks have a very quick turnaround with the teams playing Saturday night at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas after each playing Friday. Vegas has the luxury of staying at home to play again, but the Golden Knights must face a team leading the NHL’s Pacific Division on consecutive days.The Calgary Flames (13-9-1 with 27 points) entered Friday’s game against Vegas in first place. Marc-Andre Fleury posted his league-leading fourth shutout as the Golden Knights blanked Calgary 2-0 at T-Mobile Arena.Article continues below ...The Sharks (12-7-4 with 28 points) are now atop the Pacific Division after their 4-0 win over the visiting Vancouver Canucks on Friday night. They finished their six-game home stand with a 4-1-1 record and now embark on a five-game road trip.“We had a good home stand when you look at the big picture of it Youth Colin Miller Jersey ,” San Jose coach Peter DeBoer said. “We found a way to win some games and we did it in different ways, too. We tightened things up the last few games defensively. We’ve had some great goaltending … It was the special teams tonight (against Vancouver) with the power play (three goals scored).“A lot of good stuff. It’s never perfect. We always want to be better. Heading out on to the road we’re going to have to be better to win. But overall I think we accomplished what we wanted to in this home stand.”Erik Karlsson had a goal and two assists in the win over Vancouver while Joe Thornton achieved another milestone this month. Thornton had two assists, moving him past Mario Lemieux for 11th place on the NHL list. The 39-year-old center scored his 400th goal on Nov. 13. He passed Lemieux with his 1,034th assist late in the first period when Timo Meier redirected his shot with 10 seconds remaining near the end of a four-minute double-minor on Derrick Pouliot for high sticking.Thornton had another assist in the third period on Karlsson’s second goal of the season. His 1,035 assists include 750 with the Sharks.Vegas (11-12-1 with 23 points) has climbed from the seventh to the fourth spot in the Pacific Division after a modest two-game winning streak. The Golden Knights have won consecutive games for the first time since winning three in a row from Oct. 13 to Oct. 20. They are 6-3-1 at home.Fleury finished with 29 saves against Calgary, achieving his 52nd career shutout. He ranks 24th on NHL’s all-time list. He made amends after the Flames routed Vegas 7-2 on Monday in Calgary.“Our goalie was real good tonight. He made three or four really good saves,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said. “We didn’t give up a ton of shots (29) but he played really well. I was happy with his performance.”San Jose goalie Aaron Dell has also been impressive with consecutive shutouts in his last two starts.Alex Tuch Calvin De Haan Jersey Womens , playing in his 100th career NHL game, started the scoring with 3:51 left in the second period when he redirected Cody Eakin’s shot for his sixth goal. Tuch added an assist on Colin Miller’s goal –Miller’s first of the season — at 2:34 of the third period. Tuch has 10 points in his past nine games.Of Miller’s first goal, Gallant said, “He’s hit about seven goal posts this year so definitely good for his confidence and good for our team.”
