ANAHEIM — They stopped officially calling it The Pond in 2006.
It’s been a black hole for the Calgary Flames for even longer than that.
After Friday’s 4-0 shutout setback against the Anaheim Ducks, the Flames have now lost 16 consecutive regular-season clashes at what’s currently known as Honda Center.
It’s been 3,337 days since the crew from Calgary celebrated a Jan. 19, 2004, win in Anaheim.
There have been two lockouts since then. Heck, there have been two leap years since then.
In Calgary’s last win in Anaheim, the game-winning goal came courtesy of Martin Gelinas, with Craig Conroy collecting four assists on the night.
