CALGARY - No successful Duck hunt this time for the Calgary Flames.

It may not have been the level of revenge the Anaheim Ducks were looking for in their first return to the Stampede City after being blitzed here a couple of weeks, ago, but the Ducks prevented the Flames from playing spoilers again by riding a third-period comeback to a 3-2 victory Wednesday night at the Saddledome.

The Flames kept Anaheim's biggest guns silent, but Andrew Cogliano broke open a 2-2 deadlock late in the third period to spoil yet another gutsy Flames effort.

Cogliano, the most vocal of the Ducks after the Flames blasted them 7-2 earlier this month, was on the spot for a clutch rebound tally.

To their credit, and really no surprise, the Flames had quite a few chances in a frantic late push for the equalizer, but couldn't come up with the tying goal. It's their 44th one-goal game, one short of a franchise record.
