UNIONDALE, N.Y. – The Ducks bring a franchise record-tying seven-game win streak into tonight’s contest against the New York Islanders at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum (4 p.m. PT, Prime Ticket, AM 830).

Last night’s 3-2 overtime victory tied the club record for consecutive wins, marking the third time in franchise history the team has recorded seven consecutive wins, including once earlier this season (Oct. 5-20, 2013 & Feb. 20 - Mar. 7, 1999).

It was a fitting end for Montvale, New Jersey native Kyle Palmieri, who secured the two points on a nifty wraparound goal in front of hundreds of his friends and family members.

The Islanders come into tonight’s game with points in their last three games, including a 5-3 victory at Madison Square Garden last night. Though the Isles sit near the bottom of the league standings (28th), Ducks head coach Bruce Boudreau says the Islanders are on the verge of going on a run.

“I see a team ready to explode,” he said. “They played very good against us in Anaheim. You look at the tape of last night’s game, and they can throw some great speed at you. If they get that feeling of winning, well, usually winning streaks follow losing streaks. We’re well aware they’re on a high coming into tonight’s game.”

ROAD WARRIORS
Anaheim played its league-leading 22nd road game of the season last night in New Jersey, extending its road winning streak to four games with a 3-2 overtime win. The Ducks, who have also earned points in five straight away from home (4-0-1), last won four straight road games from Feb. 9-16, 2013 (4-0-0). With a 12-7-3 road record, Anaheim co-leads the NHL in road points (27). At 61 goals, the Ducks have scored the second-most goals through 22 road games in club history (2006-07, 65). With the conclusion of this four-game road trip, Anaheim will have completed 59% of its road schedule and will not return to the Eastern Time Zone for the remainder of the season.

DUCKS-ISLANDERS
The Ducks and Islanders conclude a two-game season series tonight at Nassau Coliseum. Anaheim is 10-10-5 in its all-time series against the Islanders, including a 4-6-1 mark on Long Island. The Ducks earned a 5-2 victory in the first game between these two teams on Dec. 9 at Honda Center. Anaheim rallied from a pair of one-goal deficits with three two-period goals for the win, keyed by Cam Fowler's career-tying three points (1g/2a) and Daniel Winnik's career-best three assists. The Ducks have won the last two games vs. the Islanders dating to a 4-2 win on Jan. 6, 2012 at Honda Center, matching a club best (fourth time). Anaheim has never won more than two straight games over the NY Islanders. Saku Koivu leads Ducks skaters in career scoring vs. the Islanders, collecting 33 points (8g/25a) in 42 games.
