The Ducks have little time to dwell on last night’s 3-1 loss in Dallas. After seeing their four-game winning streak come to an end, the Ducks will look to get back in the win column tonight against the St. Louis Blues in the second of back-to-backs.

After landing in St. Louis at 1:30 this morning, the Ducks will not have a morning skate.

It is not yet known who tonight’s starting netminder will be after Jonas Hiller left yesterday’s game due to a lower-body injury. Hiller was removed primarily for precautionary reasons. Viktor Fasth manned the crease for second and third periods, stopping 11 of 12 shots.

LOVEJOY
Ben Lovejoy
made his Ducks debut last night in Dallas. The 6-2, 215-pound defenseman led all Ducks skaters in shots-on-goal (4) and co-led the team in blocked shots (3) in 16:20 time-on-ice. The mobile blueliner was paired primarily with Bryan Allen during the game.

HEAD TO HEAD
Tonight marks the first of three meetings against the Blues and the first of two at Scottrade Center. The final two meetings of the season take place on Mar. 10 at Honda Center and Mar. 16 at Scottrade Center.

Last season, the two teams split the season series (2-2-0) with the home team winning all four.
