KINGS (12-18-2) at DUCKS (13-14-4)
10 p.m. ET; PRIME, FS-W, NHL.TV
The Los Angeles Kings will attempt to end an 11-game road winless streak (0-10-1) when they visit the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center on Thursday.
The Kings haven't won away from home since a 3-2 victory at the Winnipeg Jets on Oct. 22. Los Angeles, 3-6-1 in its past 10 games overall, is coming off a 3-1 win against the visiting New York Rangers on Tuesday, ending a four-game losing streak that began with a 4-2 loss at Anaheim on Dec. 2.
Goalie Jonathan Quick is expected to start; he's 2-4-1 with a 2.30 goals-against average and .901 save percentage in his past seven starts.
The Ducks, 4-8-4 in their past 16 games, look to win consecutive games for the first time since Oct. 29 (7-4 win against the Winnipeg Jets) and Nov. 1 (2-1 overtime win against the Vancouver Canucks).
Players to watch
Kings defenseman Matt Roy had two assists against the Rangers for the first multi-point game in his 57-game NHL career.
Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf has five points (one goal, four assists) in a four-game point streak and 13 points (three goals, 10 assists) in his past 11 games.
