Ducks Move Into 6th After 4-2 Win Over Flames
CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Ray Emery made 23 saves to remain perfect with Anaheim, Corey Perry scored twice and added an assist and the Ducks moved into sixth place in the Western Conference and dealt Calgary a crushing blow, beating the Flames 4-2 on Wednesday night.
Emery, signed in early February after recovering from a hip injury that required surgery last April, improved to 6-0-0 for the surging Ducks, winners of seven of their last eight games.
Perry scored his 45th and 46th goals to break a tie with Tampa Bay’s Steven Stamkos for the NHL lead.
Anaheim jumped from seventh to sixth place, six points ahead of ninth-place Calgary and Dallas. Calgary remained three points behind Chicago for the final playoff spot.
Bobby Ryan and Lubomir Visnovsky also scored for Anaheim.
Jarome Iginla and Mark Giordano scored for Calgary.
