At 5:30 of the second period in the Flames/Ducks game, Calgary requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Anaheim was off-side before the puck entered the net. 

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with NHL Hockey Operations staff, the Linesmen were inconclusive in determining whether the Ducks were off-side prior to the goal. According to Rule 78.7, "if a review is not conclusive and/or there is any doubt whatsoever as to whether the call on the ice was correct, the On-Ice Official(s) will be instructed to confirm their original call."

ANAHEIM -- It has been more than 12 years since the Calgary Flames have won a game at Honda Center, and the Anaheim Ducks aren't ready to see that streak end. The Ducks locked up a Stanley Cup Playoff berth last week, but are looking to build momentum going into the postseason. 

"You want to be able to be playing your best when you go into the playoffs," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "And that's our focus. We've had a couple games recently where we've won but haven't played our best, so hopefully in the next seven games we can get better every night."
