The roll continues for the Anaheim Ducks. After starting the week with an uncharacteristic home loss to the Winnipeg Jets, their first loss at Honda Center this season, the Ducks swept consecutive games with their Southern California rivals, the Los Angeles Kings. Thursday night’s win at Honda Center and Saturday’s victory in the first ever outdoor game at Dodger Stadium has given the Ducks a seven point lead on the Chicago Blackhawks for the top overall record in hockey. Anaheim has just six games before the near month-long break for the Sochi Olympic games, all but one at Honda Center. Ducks Tickets for all games at the Honda Center are on sale now.

Week Recap: The Ducks returned home Tuesday night after a tough road swing to face the scrappy Winnipeg Jets. Cam Fowler opened the scoring for the Ducks just four minutes into the first period, only to see Winnipeg storm back on goals by Blake Wheeler, Andrew Ladd and Evander Kane to take a 3-1 lead. Nick Bonino would score his 16th of the season to pull the Ducks within a goal, but Anaheim was unable to solve the Jets further. The loss was the first home defeat of the season for the Ducks. Repeating the form they’ve shown all season the Ducks swept consecutive games versus the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday and Saturday. The Saturday game, the first ever outdoor game at Dodger Stadium, was won by the Ducks 3-0. Jonas Hiller shut out Los Angeles for his 20th career shutout while Corey Perry, Matt Beleskey and Andrew Cogliano scored for the Ducks, with Perry scoring his 28th goal of the year. The win was the 21st victory in 24 games for the Ducks, who’ve taken a commanding lead in the Pacific Division.
