Ducks 3, Flames 2

Associated Press  |  Last updated March 03, 2012
Ryan Getzlaf scored the winning goal with 46 seconds left to give Anaheim a 3-2 victory over Calgary on Friday night, extending the Ducks' home winning streak against the Flames to 15 games. The Ducks nearly scored on a long shot with 10 seconds left, but defenseman Mark Giordano scrambled after the puck sailing toward the empty net. His desperation swipe with his stick came just as the puck was about to cross the goal line. Jonas Hiller made 27 saves for the Ducks, whose winning streak at home against Calgary is their longest against one opponent in franchise history. They outshot the Flames in all three periods while snapping a two-game skid. Leland Irving stopped 36 shots in his sixth career start for the Flames. Getzlaf took a short pass from Corey Perry and fired a one-timer from the right circle at 19:20 for the go-ahead goal. The Flames tied the game at 2 early in the third. Alex Tanguay scored into the open left side of the net while Hiller was caught in a scrum on the right side assisted by Mike Cammalleri and Jarome Iginla. Perry gave Anaheim its first lead, 2-1, at 7:41 of the second. He took a short pass from Getzlaf on the left side and lunged at the net to beat Irving stick side. The fight-filled first period ended in a 1-1 tie, with Curtis Glencross scoring first for the Flames and Bobby Ryan notching his third goal in six games with a 2-on-1 for the Ducks. Each team had four penalties, including consecutive ones for fighting. Luca Sbisa and Tom Kostopoulos landed punches during a faceoff and then Francois Beauchemin and Iginla tangled along the boards three minutes later. Notes: The Flames' last win at Anaheim was on Jan. 19, 2004. ... Hiller made his 24th consecutive start, bettering the franchise record of 23 shared by Guy Hebert and J.S. Giguere. He has allowed two goals or less in eight of his last 10 games. ... Selanne is two points away from tying his childhood idol Jari Kurri for 19th on the all-time scoring list with 1,398 points. ... Calgary D Jay Bouwmeester played in his 700th career NHL game. ... Toni Lydman is the only player who played in the Flames' last win in Anaheim, although he is now on the Ducks' roster. ... The 100th anniversary of the Calgary Stampede was celebrated inside a tent set up in the parking lot. The 10-day event is in July.
