Ducks host Red Wings as both aim to bounce back from losses

A pair of teams coming off one-goal defeats will meet Tuesday when the Detroit Red Wings stay on the road to face the host Anaheim Ducks.Detroit fell 4-3 against the Kings at Los Angeles on Saturday as Dylan Larkin and Filip Hronek scored third-period goals, but the Red Wings were unable to rally from a three-goal, second-period deficit.It was a season-high third consecutive loss for the Red Wings, who started the downturn after a season-best three-game winning streak that was also part of a run of points in four consecutive games.Dominik Kubalik also scored a goal Saturday for the Red Wings, who fell behind 2-1 at 13:21 of the first period and never recovered. Kubalik and Larkin lead the team with seven goals each. Kubalik added an assist and leads Detroit with 18 points, one more than Larkin.”We made a good push in the third,” said Red Wings forward David Perron, who had two assists and now has 401 in his career. “I thought (Larkin) led the way there, phenomenal the whole game, but in the third especially and almost willed some points there.”Detroit went 2 of 4 on the power play against the Kings and improved their man-advantage percentage to 19.3, which was 21st in the NHL heading into Monday’s play. Kubalik and Larkin each scored on the power play.The Red Wings are now 0-1 on a four-game trip that has stops at San Jose and Columbus after leaving Anaheim. Detroit is 2-3-1 on the road this season.The Ducks also are on a three-game losing streak after a disappointing 3-2 loss at home to the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday. Anaheim led 2-0 just past the midway point of the first period then never scored again as the Blackhawks made an unlikely rally.
