ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Adam Henrique scored his first two goals for the Ducks in his home debut, and Ryan Miller made 29 saves for his first shutout for Anaheim in victory over slumping Ottawa.

Andre Burakovsky practiced for a second straight day but Trotz said his return from surgery on his broken thumb will likely be put off another game or two. He allowed three goals on 10 shots.

Backstrom's production, or lack thereof, could be attributed to head coach Barry Trotz' opting to seperate Backstrom and Ovechkin to different lines. Trotz said forward Andre Burakovsky, out since October after surgery to fix his broken left thumb, could possibly play Friday against the New York Rangers. However, forward Chandler Stephenson (upper body) is expected back in the lineup following a one-game absence.
