Game Over

RANDY SPORTAK -- Calgary Sun

, Last Updated: 9:44 AM ET

DUCKS 4 FLAMES 1

SUN THREE STARS

1. Dustin Penner, Ducks. Goal and an assist from the rookie.

2. Miikka Kiprusoff, Flames. Kept his team in the game through two periods.

3. Chris Pronger, Ducks. Ho hum, another two points to go with seven shots on goal.

UNSUNG HERO

Samuel Pahlsson only seems to play well against the Flames but he did a fantastic job on the checking line.

WHY THE FLAMES LOST

Because they couldn't take advantage of the first five powerplay chances in the game and then were unable to withstand Anaheim's push.

HUGE HIT

In the opening minutes, it was a fantastic clash of NHL titans. Calgary's Jarome Iginla tried to work his way into the Anaheim zone but was stopped in his tracks and sent to the ice with a thud by Chris Pronger. Iginla later decked Teemu Selanne.

FIGHT CARD

With just over five minutes left, Robyn Regehr duked it out with George Parros. The lengthy tilt between a pair of men who are more than 230 lb., featured plenty of punches. Decision, by a whisker, to Regehr.

BURNING QUESTION

WHAT IT MEANS

Besides yet another road defeat, Calgary remains one point back of Edmonton, with a game in hand and remain even with Vancouver.

GAME DAY

The Flames are in L.A. tonight, 8:30 p.m., Pay-Per-View and FAN960. The Kings claimed a 3-1 win in the first meeting Nov. 25 and have won three of the last four meetings.
