(Sports Network) - The Anaheim Ducks try to rebound tonight when they welcome the Nashville Predators to the Honda Center for a battle of division leaders.

Anaheim, which leads the Pacific Divison, Western Conference and entire NHL with 46 points, had a five-game winning streak ended in Sunday's 3-2 loss to Los Angeles in the back end of a home-and-home. Alexander Frolov scored two goals to lift the Kings.

Todd Marchant and Ryan Getzlaf each had a goal for the Ducks, who are two points ahead of Buffalo for the overall NHL lead.

Ilya Bryzgalov started in net for Anaheim and stopped 30 shots before leaving in the third period with a leg injury. Jean-Sebastien Giguere finished the match and stopped eight of nine shots.

Anaheim will open a five-game road trip on Friday in Washington.

Nashville, meanwhile, has lost two straight on the heels of a four-game winning streak. On Monday the Preds dropped a 3-2 tilt in Phoenix, as Patrick Fischer scored the game-winning goal midway through the third period for the Coyotes.

Steve Sullivan and Alexander Radulov scored for the Predators, and Shea Weber assisted both goals. Chris Mason, who continues to fill in for the injured Tomas Vokoun (thumb), stopped 39-of-42 shots.
