The Coyotes will look to snap a three-game winless streak on Friday night when they take on the Anaheim Ducks at the Honda Center.

Arizona (24-21-6) has 54 points and is in fourth place in the Pacific Division standings behind the first-place Los Angeles Kings (65), second-place San Jose Sharks (58) and third-place Ducks (55), who have played two fewer games.

The Coyotes are 3-0-0 against Anaheim this season and have outscored them 12-5 in those games.

Rookie Anthony Duclair has notched five of his 14 goals, including a hat trick on Oct. 14, vs. the Ducks, and rookie Max Domi has netted three goals and three assists vs. Anaheim.

Goalie Louis Domingue suffered his third consecutive defeat on Thursday, a 5-4 overtime loss vs. Chicago, so Head Coach Dave Tippett will turn to Anders Lindback to start Friday’s game in the back-to-back situation. Lindback notched one of his five wins this season vs. Anaheim on Nov. 9 at the Honda Center. He stopped 33 of 36 shots faced in that win, in 61:03 of work.

Captain Shane Doan, who leads the team with 18 goals, needs three points to tie Dale Hawerchuk on the franchise’s all-time points list; Doan has 926, Hawerchuk has 929.

The Coyotes have posted a 4-4-1 record in the second game of back-to-back games this season.

Anaheim (24-18-7) has won a season-high five games in a row and seven of its past 10.

This game is the Ducks' last home game before a seven-game, 18-day trip.

Captain Ryan Getzlaf notched a goal and an assist on Thursday night in a 4-2 win at Los Angeles. He co-leads the team with 34 points along with All-Star forward Corey Perry, the team’s top goal scorer with 20.

Goalie Frederik Andersen, who is 3-0-3 vs. the Coyotes with a 1.58 goals-against average and a .940 save percentage in seven games, will start for the Ducks.
