(Sports Network) - The Anaheim Ducks aim to snap their longest losing streak of the season tonight as they welcome the Columbus Blue Jackets to the Honda Center.

The Ducks are currently in the midst of a three-game skid and were just 1-4-0 on the five-game road trip that ended Tuesday in Detroit.

Anaheim leads the Western Conference and the NHL with 62 points, but is now only one point ahead of Buffalo for the league lead.

The latest setback came in close fashion, as the Red Wings' Henrik Zetterberg scored the game-winning goal on a pretty feed from Tomas Holmstrom to give Detroit a 2-1 victory on Steve Yzerman night.

Ryan Getzlaf scored the goal for the Ducks, while goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov returned to the lineup after missing the last eight games with a groin injury and finished with 28 saves.

Anaheim's starting goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere remains out with a groin injury of his own.

Tonight marks the first of two straight at home for the Ducks, who are an amazing 15-2-4 in Anaheim this year.
