(Sports Network) - The last-place Philadelphia Flyers will continue their road trip tonight at the Honda Center with a battle against the Anaheim Ducks.

The Flyers are last in the NHL with just eight points this year and are still winless (0-5-1) in the month of November. The club hasn't tasted victory since beating Chicago on October 30.

Philadelphia began a four-game swing Monday night in Pittsburgh and was handed a 3-2 setback as Evgeni Malkin scored with just over two minutes left in the game to lift the Penguins.

Randy Robitaille and Geoff Sanderson tallied goals for the struggling Flyers.

Mike Knuble returned to the lineup for Philadelphia after missing the previous six games with a broken finger. The Flyers were without their captain, though, as Peter Forsberg missed his second straight game with an ankle injury. Forsberg is questionable for tonight's contest.

Philadelphia netminder Antero Niittymaki finished with 36 saves in the loss to Pittsburgh.

The Flyers, who are 1-7-0 as the visiting club this year, are playing the second test of a four-game road trip tonight.
