The Anaheim Ducks finished their three-game homestand against the Calgary Flames. The Ducks were looking to remain undefeated at home this season. John Gibson was in net against Cam Talbot.

The opening frame yielded no scoring. There was just one power-play for Anaheim. Mark Jankowski was called for tripping against Ondrej Kase. The Ducks were unable to convert and the teams were tied after an evenly matched opening period.

In the beginning of the second period, Jakob Silfverberg ripped a shot past Talbot just 12 seconds in. The goal was Jakob’s fifth on the season, tying Adam Henrique for the team lead in goals scored. The Flames would answer at 15:32 mark when Michael Stone one-timed a slap shot that beat a screened Gibson. The teams were tied at two after two periods of play.

Halfway through the third period, Mikael Backlund would score on a 2-on-1 to give Calgary the lead for good. The Ducks had several chances, but couldn’t tie the game. Derek Grant and Nicolas Deslauriers both hit the post. Max Comtois and Nick Ritchie also had chances in the final moments of the game but came up empty.



The Ducks got out to a lead in this contest, but couldn’t generate more than a single goal. They had three chances on the power play but came up empty each time. The Flames were opportunistic as they cashed in at the right moments in this game. Anaheim had several chances to tie the game, but Talbot had an answer especially in the third period and at other times the Ducks missed the net. Even the presence of Teemu Selanne in the crowd couldn’t propel the Ducks to a victory.

Team Stats

The Ducks are 39-10-6 at Honda Center all-time against Calgary.
