DETROIT (Ticker) -- The Anaheim Ducks vie for their fifth

consecutive victory on Monday when they visit the Detroit Red

Wings.

Anaheim, which will match a season high if its able to win, has

allowed just three goals during its winning streak.

Jonas Hiller made 36 saves and Rob Niedermayer scored twice as

the Ducks posted a 4-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on

Sunday.

Hiller was coming off a 26-save shutout against Chicago on

Friday and has won his last five starts.

The suddenly slumping defending champions have dropped three of

four for the first time this season.

Despite outshooting Boston, 30-19, Detroit lost a 4-1 contest on

the road on Saturday. Jiri Hudler scored the lone goal but

netminder Ty Conklin allowed three goals on nine shots before he

was removed at the 8:01 mark of the second.

Francois Beauchemin's tally in overtime helped Anaheim win the

first meeting, 5-4, on October 29.
