Daniel Winnik ended an 18-game goal drought on the first shot of the game and Viktor Fasth posted his second career shutout for the Anaheim Ducks with 29 saves in a 4-0 victory over the Calgary Flames on Friday night.
Bobby Ryan and defenseman Sheldon Souray scored less than 2 1-2 minutes apart in the second period for Anaheim, who have won 16 straight at home against Calgary.
Ryan, shaken up during the opening period when he slid into the end boards unchecked behind the Calgary net, made it 2-0 . Corey Perry set up the play from behind the net after getting the puck from Ryan Getzlaf, who notched his 500th NHL point on the same day he signed an eight-year, $66 million contract extension.

Anaheim hates going to Detroit. Joe Louis has been very unkind to them over the years and the Ducks have a mere four wins in the building in 20 years. Calgary can feel Anaheim's pain, because a visit to the Honda Center has yielded absolutely nothing in return for the past 16 games in a row. The Flames last win in Anaheim? January 19, 2004.

It only took three times (and a change of venue!) but the Ducks finally defeated the Coyotes. After two consecutive 5-4 shootout losses in Phoenix, the miniseries came to Anaheim where everything changed.
