CALGARY -- The Calgary Flames hope a change in venue brings them a change of fortune.
After losing the first two games of the Western Conference Second Round series against the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center, the Flames will be at Scotiabank Saddledome for Game 3 on Tuesday (9:30 p.m. ET; USA, SN, TVA Sports) looking for their first win of the series.
"It was long four days away and I think there is a lot of excitement with our fans to come play in our own building," Calgary forward David Jones said Monday. "Playing here [in Calgary] is unbelievable, we've got the best fans so we are all looking forward to being home. Just being in that building helps bring everyone's level up another degree."
Getting away from Anaheim should also help. The Ducks have won 21 straight games against the Flames on home ice, dating to April 27, 2006.
The Flames have won three straight on home ice in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, each against the Vancouver Canucks in the first round.
