The Anaheim Ducks are coming off a 2-1 win against the Los Angeles Kings(Click for Recap: Ducks Edge Kings). They travel up north to San Jose to face the Sharks for the second of back-to-back games tonight. The game tonight will not be on television.

You can listen the Steve Carroll and Dan Wood on the Ducks website.

The Ducks look to rotate many players into this game that did not play last night. Anton Khudobin will get his first start in net for the Ducks. Underestimated by some, but Khudobin has pushed Tuukka Rask in Boston and Cam Ward in Carolina. The addition of him to the roster will help push Frederik Andersen to be an even better goaltender this season while at the same time getting him rest throughout the season.

Another notable Ducks players making their pre-season debut are Cogliano, Perry, and Kesler tonight.
