Ducks Beat Flames For 14th Straight Time In Anaheim
ANAHEIM (AP) — Niklas Hagman scored the deciding goal in the eighth round of a shootout and the Anaheim Ducks beat Calgary 2-1 on Monday night for their 14th straight home victory over the Flames.
Bobby Ryan and Matt Beleskey scored less than 2 minutes apart in the first period for the Ducks, who won the tiebreaker by a 3-2 margin. Jonas Hiller made 24 saves.
The Ducks haven’t lost to the Flames at home since a 5-1 defeat on Jan. 19, 2004 — Calgary’s only regulation win in its last 24 visits to Anaheim (1-13-10). The Flames’ last seven games at Honda Center have resulted in one-goal losses, five of them either in overtime or a shootout.
Alex Tanguay and Jarome Iginla scored for Calgary. Miikka Kiprusoff had 31 saves in the opener of a three-game road trip.
