Ducks beat Flames at home for 18th straight time, Koivu returns with 2 assists in 5-2 win

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Dustin Penner had two goals and Saku Koivu had two assists in his long-awaited return to the lineup, leading the Anaheim Ducks to a 5-2 victory Friday over Calgary.

It was the Ducks' 18th win in a row over the Flames at home. The streak is the Ducks' longest against any opponent at Honda Center. Calgary hasn't beaten Anaheim on the road since Jan. 19, 2004; only three players on Calgary's current roster had made their NHL debut by then: Michael Cammalleri, Jiri Hudler and Matt Stajan.

Sami Vatanen and Corey Perry scored 54 seconds apart in the first period. Perry and Andrew Cogliano each had a goal and an assist during Anaheim's 42-shot barrage, and rookie Frederik Andersen made 19 saves for the defending Pacific Division champions, who are off to a franchise-best 10-0-1 start at home.
