In both meetings last season between the two, Pittsburgh came out on top. Defeating Anaheim 3-1 on Nov. 18 at home, Pittsburgh wound up topping the Ducks 3-2 in a shootout on their pond, in March.
The last six outings between the Pens and Ducks, Pittsburgh has garnered four wins. The Penguins are 3-3 in their last six home openers.
The rest of their 2014-15 schedule has yet to be released.
