CHICAGO -- Without veteran defenseman Sheldon Souray, the Ducks have still surged to the NHL's best record, winning a record-tying 18 of 19 games with goalie Jonas Hiller winning 14 straight. Yet, news Thursday that Souray, 37, was to undergo surgery Friday on the torn right wrist tendon he suffered in preseason conditioning and miss the remainder of the season deprives the Ducks of an experienced on-ice leader as the games increase in intensity and significance. “It's a big blow as far as we were expecting him back,” Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau said Friday at United Center, where the Ducks (36-8-5)

The Ducks finished 19th in goals-against average in the NHL last season, with grit and experience lacking. That's why the team invested $21 million over three years in veteran defensemen Sheldon Souray, 36, and Bryan Allen, 32. "They just wanted to be more heavy in their own end, a little more sandpaper, a little more harder to play against," said Souray, who is 6 feet 4. Allen is 6-5. "What Bryan Allen and I bring is not only size … we...

Ducks defenseman Sheldon Souray answered the question with an excellent one of his own. The topic was how best to combat, at least within the rules, the Red Wings' often-formidable presence in front of the net, one of the key factors in their Game 6 win at Detroit. “If you find out, would you let us know?” Souray said after the Ducks' morning skate Sunday, several hours before Game 7 at the Honda Center in Anaheim. Being his usual thoughtful self, Souray went on to give a complete answer, filled with a bit of Red Wings history and present-day assessment.

So now what? The Ducks had won 13 consecutive home games, topped by a gritty third-period rally to beat NHL points leader Chicago last week, only to lose their last three at home. They gave up five goals on Friday against Detroit and Monday against San Jose and fell behind 2-0 in the first 10 minutes of Sunday's game against Detroit and in the San Jose game. Now they start a four-game trip on Wednesday in San Jose. "One thing we have that others don't is the track record," Ducks veteran defenseman Sheldon Souray said Tuesday from the airport.

CHICAGO — So sad, so unfortunate that the final 14 games of the regular season for the Anaheim Ducks will be Blackhawk-less. Three games between the Ducks and Chicago produced three chapters of riveting hockey theater, all featuring slightly different plots with the same ending. The Ducks won Part 3 with defenseman Sheldon Souray's blast from the left point with 2 minutes 8 seconds remaining in regulation, beating the Blackhawks, 2-1, Friday night at the United Center, sweeping their season series, three games to none.

DETROIT -- The Ducks will be facing an altered Red Wings team at a most critical time, in Game 4 on Monday night. What has been the Red Wings' top line, the one carrying them into the playoffs, was dismantled when the NHL suspended Detroit forward Justin Abdelkader for two games for his hit on Ducks defenseman Toni Lydman late in the second period in Saturday's Game 3. Abdelkader had been an effective force with the highly skilled duo of...

The Ducks have taken their best swing at the NHL's best team, and having the San Jose Sharks so backed to the ropes before a shootout loss this week has the team enthused about its prospects. More will be known after this stretch of three home games in four days starting Friday against Northwest Division-leading Minnesota, with the defending Stanley Cup-champion Kings visiting Saturday and the unbeaten Sharks at Honda Center on Monday. “We're trying to be more aggressive, up-tempo, and we're fine with that - we're big guys who like to play low,” said captain Ryan Getzlaf, whose first line with Corey Perry and Daniel Winnik has combined for eight goals and eight assists through five games.

The Kings are a prime contender to acquire high-scoring left wing Ilya Kovalchuk from Atlanta, but they're competing with Vancouver, Boston and another Eastern team for the two-time 50-goal scorer, according to hockey sources who were not authorized to speak publicly about the matter. The Bruins could offer one of the first-round draft picks they got from Toronto for Phil Kessel, while the Canucks and Kings have youngsters whose salaries would suit the cash-pinched Thrashers. The Kings' depth on defense gives them bargaining chips, though they're unlikely to part with core defensemen Jack Johnson, Drew Doughty, Matt Greene and Rob Scuderi.

Sheldon Souray was persona non grata as an Edmonton Oiler. With the Ducks, the veteran defenseman has been exactly what the team needed to help resurrect it from playoff onlooker to Stanley Cup contender. His 6-foot-4, 240-pound frame boosts his ability to shut down the opposition while facilitating the offense alongside another reborn veteran, Francois Beauchemin. They are the top plus/minus defensive duo in the NHL through Wednesday, Souray ranking first among defensemen and sixth overall at plus-22 and Beauchemin ranking second among defensemen at plus-20.

Sheldon Souray's 100-plus-mph slapshot makes hardened NHL players skate for cover in practice. Souray, a defenseman for the Ducks, launched his barely seen flying weapon at a crucial moment Monday, burying a goal past the glove of San Jose goaltender Thomas Greiss to give Anaheim a 2-1 victory and hand the Sharks their first regulation loss of the season. Viktor Fasth, the Ducks' rookie backup goalie, preserved the victory by stopping 25 of 26 shots against a team that had scored 30 goals before Monday.

When: 7. Where: Honda Center. On the air: TV: Prime Ticket . Radio: 830. Records: Ducks 4-1-0; Stars 5-1-0. Update: Skipping a season in the NHL? No problem for Stars defenseman Sheldon Souray, who was in Oilers-imposed exile last season, languishing deep in the AHL. Dallas signed him in the off-season, and Souray has five points in six games this season. The Stars and Ducks couldn't have been any closer last season, with the series going 2-2-2.

The Zach Parise derby may have turned into a two-day decathlon, but the Kings were realistic about their chances with the New Jersey Devils free-agent star forward, calling the odds of signing him "way too long. " An official with knowledge of the situation but not authorized to comment said Sunday that the team had learned from the pursuit of Brad Richards last summer - he landed with the New York Rangers - and was focusing elsewhere. That focus could end up on Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan, who has two big fans in Kings Coach Darryl Sutter and Kings President and General Manager Dean Lombardi.
