The Ducks look to extend a five-game point streak this evening against the Calgary Flames at Honda Center. (7 p.m. PT, TV: FOX Sports West, Radio: AM 830). This is the second meeting of the season between the two clubs, which opened with a 2-1 Flames victory at Honda Center on Oct. 20.
Because Tuesday's game was postponed due to a medical emergency that occurred at 12:10 of the first period involving Blues defenseman Jay Bouwmeester, the Ducks' record remains 23-26-7 (53 points) - the same as it was after their 4-3 victory in Buffalo on Sunday. A decision on when the game will be played will be made in the near future. (Yesterday, Blues GM Doug Armstrong provided an update on Bouwmeester.)
Along with points in five straight, the Ducks have gone 4-1-2 in their last seven games and 6-2-2 in their last 10. They've also scored four shorthanded goals in the last 10 games to push their season total to 10, tying the single-season franchise mark for SHG set three previous times in 1995-96, 2013-14 and 2017-18.
The Ducks have found success against the Flames over the years, posting a 60-14-9 all-time record (39-10-6 at home). They've gone 13-6 vs. Calgary dating to Nov. 24, 2015 and 35-14-2 since Nov. 29, 2007. Ryan Getzlaf leads active Ducks in career scoring vs. Calgary with 61 points (18g/43a). The season series will continue with games four days apart - Thursday, Feb. 13 (7 p.m. PT) at Honda Center and Monday, Feb. 17 (1 p.m. PT) at Scotiabank Saddledome.
This is the finale of a four-game road trip for the Flames (29-23-6, 64 points), who earned 6-2 victories in the first two Feb. 8 at Vancouver and Feb. 10 at San Jose, respectively, but fell 5-3 last night in LA.
Johnny Gaudreau paces the Flames in scoring with 47 points (14g/33a) in 58 games. The 5-foot-9, 165-pound left wing is riding a three-game point streak (five assists) and has a team-best 12 multi-point games this season.
