The Ducks are set to resume play with their first game since the All-Star break. Anaheim is on a two-game losing streak, getting blanked by the New York Islanders and then held to just one goal in a 5-1 loss to St. Louis. Daniel Sprong had the lone goal for the Ducks, potting his 8th of the season. The 21-year-old has 12 points in 22 games played since being acquired by the team in December. The Ducks reside just outside the playoff picture, one point less than the second wild card-holding Colorado Avalanche.
The Ducks have gone 2-6-2 in their last 10 games. For more: Ducks January Review
