(SportsNetwork.com) - The NHL-leading Anaheim Ducks will attempt to extend a five-game winning streak on Tuesday night as they open up a stretch of road games with a contest versus the Vancouver Canucks. The Ducks rolled to a 6-3 win over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday before the All-Star break, upping their league-leading point total to 68. That is three ahead of the Nashville Predators in the overall standings and they also own a 12-point edge over the second-place San Jose Sharks in the Pacific Division. The Canucks are third in the division, one point behind the Sharks and two ahead of the Calgary Flames. Anaheim got a goal from six different players versus Calgary, with Ben Lovejoy notching a goal and an assist. Tim Jackman, Pat Maroon, Kyle Palmieri, Ryan Kesler and Ryan Getzlaf also lit the lamp, while Frederik Andersen posted 30 saves despite battling the flu. The Ducks moved to 9-2-1 over their last 12 games. Tonight was a night that we really wanted, said Lovejoy. We felt like we wanted to rise to the occasion. We wanted to have a happy four days. We brought a lot of energy and had a great first period. As they often do, the Flames made a push. They worked hard all game, but its nice to come away from the victory. Getzlaf, an All-Star, comes out of the break tied for third in the NHL with 35 assists and is seventh with 50 points in 46 games. Hell look to keep Anaheim successful as it begins a stretch of two straight and seven of nine on the road. Andersen likely will start tonight and has excellent career numbers versus the Canucks, going 5-0-1 with a 1.29 goals against average and .955 save percentage. The Ducks are 8-0-1 in their past nine versus the Canucks overall, taking two straight since a shootout loss at home to Vancouver on Nov. 9. Anaheim has won five in a row at home in this series as well. The Canucks, who begin a six-game homestand tonight, had a three-game win streak halted with last Tuesdays 4-1 setback to the Vancouver Canucks. Ryan Miller went in having allowed one goal over the run, but yielded three on 25 shots in the loss. Defenseman Frank Corrado had the lone goal for Vancouver, which went 0-for-7 on the power play, with three unsuccessful 5-on-3 chances. It was disappointing because we had chances and we were in a good position there in the third, Miller told NHL.com. Im disappointed not to get a save for the guys to keep it close there. I could have done a better job to keep it closer. The Canucks open their homestand without defenseman Kevin Bieksa, who is sidelined due to a broken hand suffered versus the Lightning while blocking a shot. In 45 games this season, Bieksa has three goals and six assists for nine points. Miller is 3-3-1 lifetime versus the Ducks with a 2.46 GAA and .925 save percentage in seven games (6 starts).

. -- Without Carey Price, the run for a first Stanley Cup in 21 years got steeper and longer for the Montreal Canadiens.ROME -- Real Madrid castoff Jose Maria Callejon scored in the first half and Belgium international Dries Mertens added a late goal as Napoli handed Serie A leader Juventus only its second loss of the season with a 2-0 victory Sunday. Still, Juventus has an 11-point lead over second-place Roma and is 17 points ahead of Napoli with seven rounds remaining. In the 37th minute at the San Paolo stadium, Callejon beat Juve midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah to redirect a cross from Lorenzo Insigne from the edge of the box for his 12th goal since transferring from Madrid in the off-season. Mertens sealed the result after collecting a long pass from Goran Pandev in the 81st and muscling off Claudio Marchisio before beating goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon with a long bouncing shot. Napoli is still hoping to edge Roma for second place and gain the last direct Champions League berth. "This is a very important win, because it keeps us close to Roma," Insigne said. "Were going to fight until the end." Juventus, which was without suspended Serie A scoring leader Carlos Tevez, struggled to create chances. The Turin powers only other loss was a 4-2 defeat at Fiorentina in October. Earlier, Mattia Destros early goal was key and Roma was fortunate when a penalty kick for relegation-threatened Sassuolo was waved off in a 2-0 win. Roma faces Parma on Wednesday in the resumption of a match from February that was stopped after eight minutes due to a waterlogged pitch. "No other squads will be playing," Roma coach Rudi Garcia said. "Weve got to take advantage of that." Elsewhere Sunday, fourth-place Fiorentina was held to a 0-0 draw at Sampdoria. Fiorentina winger Juan Vargas banged a free kick off the corner of the goal frame in the 78th and Sampdoria coach Sinisa Mihajlovic was sent off for protesting in the final minutes, grabbing an officials arm as he walked off the pitch. Parma remained one point behind Inter Milan in the race for fifth and the final Europa League berth after a 3-2 loss at Lazio. Antonio Candreva scored the winner for Lazio in added time of a match marked by poor defending on both sides.dddddddddddd After Lazios Senad Lulic and Parmas Jonathan Biabiany traded goals in the first half, Miroslav Klose restored Lazios lead in the 67th and then Lazio goalkeeper Federico Marchetti let the ball trickle in between his legs in the 81st for an own goal. Luca Toni scored twice after Marco Donadels opener in Hellas Veronas 3-0 win over Genoa and Alessio Cerci set up one goal for Omar El Kaddouri and scored another in Torinos 2-1 win over Cagliari. In Naples, only Buffon kept the hosts from scoring early on. Buffon stopped a close-range attempt from Callejon seven minutes in, Hamsik had a goal annulled for offside seconds later and Buffon tipped an attempt from Hamsik over the bar in the 10th. Buffon also blocked a powerful effort from Callejon in the 29th then stopped a dangerous free kick from Algeria fullback Faouzi Ghoulam in the 58th. Napoli was helped by vocal crowd support. "As always, the fans gave us a big hand," Insigne said. In Reggio Emilia, Destro had an easy time finding the target from the centre of the area in the 16th after getting set up by Belgium midfielder Radja Nainggolan, who stripped the ball from a defender just outside the area. Competing for a spot on Italys World Cup squad, it was the fourth consecutive match in which Destro scored, and it was his 10th goal since beginning his injury-delayed season in December. Sassuolo thought it had a chance to equalize in the 35th when referee Nicola Rizzoli -- Italys World Cup representative -- appeared to change his mind several times before denying the hosts a penalty for minor contact between Roma defender Mehdi Benatia and Nicola Sansone. Roma substitute Michel Bastos sealed the victory with a goal six minutes into added time after getting set up by Romas 37-year-old captain Francesco Totti, who replaced Destro in the 79th. Playing its first season in the top division, Sassuolo remained one point above last-place Catania, which visits Udinese on Monday.
