The Anaheim Ducks kicked off the season with four consecutive losses away from home but will hope for better results this time when they open a three-game road trip at the Columbus Blue Jackets on Wednesday night. Anaheim has won three of four overall and is coming off impressive home wins over Arizona and Calgary.

Getzlaf returned to the lineup following a two-game injury absence with a flourish, setting up three goals in Sunday’s 4-1 victory over Calgary. That boosted Getzlaf’s career total to 331 assists, tying former teammate Teemu Selanne for No. 1 in franchise history.

The 10-goal outburst 24 hours earlier notwithstanding, coach John Tortorella was not happy with the effort level in St. Louis while lauding captain Nick Foligno for brawling with the Blues’ Ryan Reaves. Tortorella did not name names, but it became clearer at practice with whom he was upset, dropping Brandon Saad from the second to fourth line.

Getzlaf has 12 goals and 42 points in 35 games versus Columbus.

The Blue Jackets are 13-for-13 on the penalty kill in the last four contests.

Anaheim is 9-for-21 on the power play over the last six games.
