Probable Lines:

Del Zotto-Rozsival

Steve Valiquette - 0-0-0, 0.00 gaa, .000 sv%, 0 so.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere - 0-0-1, 3.80 gaa, .880 sv%, 0 so.

Opponent Notes:
- Teemu Selanne scored twice in regulation and once in the shootout to help Anaheim defeat the Flyers last night. Selanne now has four goals this season.

- RW Corey Perry has scored all five of his points in the last three games and has a plus-5 rating over that stretch.

- D Ryan Whitney is a plus-6 in his last three games. Whitney also has points in three of his four games this season.

- According to the OC Register, Jean-Sebastien Giguere could get his second start of the season tonight since it’s the first time the Ducks have played on back-to-back nights. However, Coach Randy Carlyle also tends to go with a winning goalie and Jonas Hiller has allowed just three goals in wins over Boston and Philadelphia.
