DUCKS 6, FLAMES 4
CALGARY, Alberta (AP) – Corey Perry had a goal and an assist, and the Ducks went a perfect 3 for 3 on the power play.

The Ducks went right back to the man advantage and needed only 11 seconds to convert, with a rebound deflecting off several players and going in off the skate of Sami Vatanen to put Anaheim into the lead for good.
Mike Santorelli, with a pair of goals, Hamphus Lindholm and Rickard Rakell also scored for Anaheim. The Ducks, 9-1-1 in their past 11 games, leapfrogged San Jose into second place in the Pacific Division.
