Ducks tonight

VS. PITTSBURGH

When: 7.

Where: Honda Center.

On the air: TV: Ch. 56; Radio: 830.

Records: Ducks 5-7-1, Penguins 6-6-1.

Record vs. Penguins (2009-10): 0-2-0.

Update: The Ducks will try to carry over the momentum from Wednesday night's 3-2 overtime victory against Tampa Bay. Ryan Getzlaf, who had the game-winning goal, has five goals and 11 assists in his last 10 games. Teemu Selanne, who had the assist on that game-winner, is skating as fast as he did 15 years ago and has six points in his last seven games. The Penguins' Marc-Andre Fleury, meanwhile, is expected to get the start in net. After a shaky 1-5 start (and a 3.35 goals-against average), he had been benched in favor of backup Brent Johnson. Pittsburgh is coming off a 5-2 loss Wednesday to the Dallas Stars in which the highlight may have been Penguins captain Sidney Crosby landing several solid punches in a fight with the Stars' Matt Niskanen in the second period.
