(Sports Network) - The Anaheim Ducks will try to get back on the winning track this evening when they welcome the Phoenix Coyotes to the Honda Center.

The Ducks are 9-0-4 this season and are one of two teams (Buffalo) in the NHL to have not yet suffered a regulation loss.

Anaheim is the first team to record at least one point in the first 13 games of a season since the 1994-95 Pittsburgh Penguins. The Oilers hold the NHL record with a stretch of 15 straight games with a point to begin the 1984-85 campaign.

However, Anaheim was handed an overtime loss this Wednesday by the visiting New York Rangers. Jaromir Jagr scored the game-winning goal with 1:51 left in overtime as the Blueshirts edged the Ducks, 4-3.

With 2:10 remaining in the overtime period, Francois Beauchemin was whistled for roughing after punching Rangers defenseman Aaron Ward in the face repeatedly in front of the New York net. The Rangers wasted no time in taking advantage of the penalty, as Jagr beat Jean-Sebasatien Giguere top shelf just 19 seconds later to give New York the victory.

Teemu Selanne scored a goal for the Ducks, ending a personal 10-game scoring drought. Chris Pronger and Ryan Getzlaf also tallied goals for Anaheim, which had won six of its previous seven games.

Tonight is the middle test of a three-game homestand for the Ducks, who are 5-0-3 at the Honda Center this year.
