BOSTON (Ticker) -- Despite playing all its January games at home, the new year has not been kind to the Boston Bruins.

A depleted Boston squad concludes a seven-game homestand when it hosts the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in their lone meeting of the season Monday.

The Bruins have scored just three times during their three-game losing streak and have dropped four of six on the homestand. With only 39 points, Boston is 13th in the Eastern Conference, leading only Pittsburgh and Washington.

Milan Jurcina, who has scored five of Boston's last eight goals, picked up his fifth of the season in Saturday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Dallas Stars.

Among the wounded for the the Bruins is former Norris Trophy winner Brian Leetch, who is not expected to play with a strained groin. Glen Murray is listed as day-to-day with a swollen foot and Hal Gill is a game-time decision with a pinched nerve.

Joffrey Lupul scored his 16th goal and Travis Moen added his his third for Anaheim, which lost for the third time in four contests in Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Capitals.

Teemu Selanne, who leads the Mighty Ducks with 37 points, missed his first game of the season with a strained groin. Rob Niedermayer sat out his fourth straight contest with a concussion.

The teams have not faced each other since Sergei Samsonov scored in overtime to give Boston a 4-3 victory over Anaheim on October 19, 2003.
