Daily Primer Nov. 4: Ducks take Manhattan
Monday, November 4 features two NHL games, headlined by the Anaheim Ducks visiting the New York Rangers, who seek their fourth straight victory.

The Anaheim Ducks haven't played on home ice since Oct. 20. They'll finally finish their eight-game road trip Monday night before they pack their bags and return to Honda Center.

Anaheim, which is 4-2-1 through the first seven games, concludes its long trip against the surging New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2, RDS, MSG). The Ducks' road success has allowed them to keep pace with the San Jose Sharks in the Pacific Division. New York has won three in a row and now sits in fourth in the Metropolitan Division after winning three of nine on the road to start the season.

Here's a look at the action scheduled for Monday:

Anaheim Ducks at New York Rangers – After coming up empty in their first two games of the road trip, the Ducks have earned points in five straight (4-0-1). Anaheim extended its point streak to five with a 6-3 win against the Buffalo Sabres at First Niagara Center on Saturday night. Corey Perry scored twice, his seventh and eighth goals of the season. Derek Stepan guided New York to its third straight win Saturday in a 5-1 victory against the Carolina Hurricanes at Madison Square Garden.

Detroit Red Wings at Winnipeg Jets – Detroit has responded from a four-game skid by winning its past three games. The Red Wings extended their winning streak with a 5-0 victory against the reeling Edmonton Oilers at Rexall Place on Saturday. Detroit concludes its four-game road trip at Winnipeg (5-8-2), which has lost three in a row. The Jets have gone nine games without a regulation win. They're the lone club in the Central Division with a sub-.500 record.

Quote of the Day

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
