PHILADELPHIA -- Rickard Rakell shouldn't have any trouble sleeping after his second two-goal game of the season helped the Anaheim Ducks to a 4-1 win against the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday.

It was Anaheim's seventh win in its past eight games (7-1-0).

The Ducks lost 6-2 at the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday, and Rakell was minus-4, the worst rating of his NHL career.
