Teemu Selanne leads Anaheim Ducks to best start in club history with 3-2 win over Calgary

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Teemu Selanne scored the first goal of his 22nd NHL season, and the Anaheim Ducks extended the best start in franchise history with their fifth straight victory, 3-2 over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night.

Dustin Penner and Kyle Palmieri scored first-period goals, and Viktor Fasth made 33 saves for the defending Pacific Division champions, who have won five of their first six games for the first time in the club's two-decade history.

Selanne's 676th career goal late in the second period ended up providing the winning margin for the Ducks, who have won 17 consecutive home games against Calgary since Jan. 19, 2004.

Lee Stempniak scored a short-handed goal and Jiri Hudler got credit for a deflected goal early in the third period for Calgary.

The fans love it, and it looked like they were having fun. It was great to see this city [Columbus]. They had been waiting a couple years for this game. They did it right.
