(Sports Network) - The Anaheim Ducks will take another shot at ending their longest losing streak of the season tonight, when they welcome the Detroit Red Wings to the Honda Center.

The Ducks, who lead the Western Conference with 62 points, have dropped four straight contests and have yet to win in 2007. The last two losses have come without defenseman Chris Pronger, who is out indefinitely with a broken foot suffered in Minnesota on New Year's Eve.

Anaheim's latest setback came Friday against visiting Columbus. Rostislav Klesla scored a pair of third-period goals and Manny Malhotra tallied the game-winner with only 1:20 left in the 4-3 game. The Blue Jackets overcame a three-goal deficit with just over 10 minutes remaining.

Teemu Selanne had a goal and an assist, but was denied on a penalty shot with 20.9 seconds remaining.

Andy McDonald also had a goal and an assist and Ilya Bryzgalov made 29 saves for Anaheim, which failed to hold on after going ahead 3-0 early in the third period.

Ducks No. 1 goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere is still sidelined with a groin injury.

The Ducks, who are 15-3-4 as the host this year, wrap up a brief two-game homestand tonight.

Meanwhile, the Red Wings were dealt their second straight loss Saturday night in Los Angeles. Michael Cammalleri scored the game-winning goal late in the third period as the Kings scored four unanswered goals to beat Detroit, 4-2.

The Red Wings blew an early lead for the second consecutive game. On Thursday, Detroit had an early three-goal lead against San Jose before the Sharks rallied to pound the Red Wings 9-4.
