ANAHEIM MIGHTY DUCKS AT CALGARY FLAMES

TONIGHT AT 7 P.M., TV: NONE, RADIO: FAN 960

COMING IN:

A 4-3 win in San Jose Monday night snapped Calgary's losing skid at three games (0-1-2). The Flames are going through their worst stretch since the beginning of the season with two wins in their last seven.

Anaheim comes to town having dropped a 6-5 shootout clash in Edmonton. The Ducks have a 4-1-1 record in their last six and a 7-2-4 mark in the last 13 to pull within striking distance of the pack in the playoff chase.

HEAD-TO-HEAD:

The Mighty Ducks won the season's first meeting, a 4-1 game back in October in Anaheim. The Flames have won the last two meetings in Calgary and four of the last five.

WHO'S HOT:

FLAMES -- D Robyn Regehr is coming off his first career three-point game, all assists, in San Jose.

DUCKS -- C Andy McDonald scored a goal and an assist in Edmonton to up his point streak to a career best eight games (3-11-14).

WHO'S NOT:

FLAMES -- D Jordan Leopold collected an assist in San Jose but is still looking for his first goal of the season.

DUCKS -- C Sami Pahlsson, highly touted when part of the trade that sent Ray Bourque to Colorado, has gone 14 games without scoring a goal.

SPECIAL TEAMS:

POWERPLAY -- Calgary 17.6% (58-329, 15th); Anaheim 16.8% (54-322, 21st).

PENALTY KILLING -- Calgary 82.4% (15th); Anaheim 84.2% (9th).

INJURIES:

FLAMES -- C Byron Ritchie (knee) is day to day. D Roman Hamrlik (hand) and D Bryan Marchment (knee) remain out.

DUCKS -- D Sandis Ozolinsh (personal) is out. C Zenon Konopka (ankle) and LW Travis Moen (shoulder) are day to day.

NOTABLES:

Thirteen Ducks collected points in Edmonton but Teemu Selanne didn't, snapping his point streak at nine games. He needs two points to tie Brian Propp with 1,004 for 69th spot on the NHL's all-time list ... Anaheim's road record is at 9-10-7, with four of those extra-session losses coming in shootouts. Lately on the road, it's been good news for them, with a 6-1-4 mark in their last 11 ... The Ducks sport a dismal 1-7-2 mark against Northwest Division teams, with that lone victory coming against Calgary.
