(Sports Network) - The Anaheim Ducks try to place themselves alone in the record books tonight when they visit the Vancouver Canucks at GM Place.

By earning points in 15 consecutive games (11-0-4), the Ducks have posted the longest such streak to begin an NHL season since the Edmonton Oilers set the NHL record by doing so in the same number of games to start 1984-85.

Anaheim matched the Oilers' mark on Monday, as Teemu Selanne's power-play goal 44 seconds into overtime lifted the Ducks to a 3-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Chris Kunitz and Corey Perry added tallies in regulation and Scott Niedermayer finished with two assists. Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped 15 shots to record his eighth win of the year.

Selanne has seven points (3g, 4a) in his last four games, including the game- winners in each of the last two contests.

Anaheim is the only club in the NHL this season that has not suffered a regulation loss.
