Ducks beat Flames to end 5-game losing streak – Orange County Register


CALGARY, Alberta — Alex Killorn scored twice, Troy Terry had a goal and two assists and the Ducks snapped their five-game losing streak with a 5-3 victory over the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night.

Mason McTavish and Cam Fowler rounded out the scoring for Anaheim while rookie defenseman Olen Zellweger had three assists for his first career multi-point game.

Lukas Dostal made 21 stops as the Ducks won for just the second time in their last 14 games (2-11-1).

Andrei Kuzmenko had two goals and Yegor Sharangovich also scored for the Flames, who have lost six of their last seven games. Jacob Markstrom had 24 saves.

Tied after 40 minutes, the Ducks took the lead 1:52 into the third when Fowler jumped into the rush, took a pass from Trevor Zegras and wired a shot inside the goalpost for his fifth goal of the season and first in 22 games.

The Ducks doubled their lead at 5:09 when Terry carried the puck down the left wing and found Killorn in the slot, who zipped a shot past Markstrom.

After Kuzmenko’s second of the night at 9:34 cut the lead to one again, Killorn put the game away with his second of the period and 17th of the season at 13:14.

Down 1-0 after the first period, Calgary tied it 2:30 into the second period, needing just five seconds to connect on a power play.

After winning the faceoff, the puck eventually came back to Nazem Kadri and his shot was deflected in front by Sharangovich for his 29th goal.

Calgary took its first lead of the night when Kuzmenko took a pass from Kadri, cut into the slot to avoid Zegras, then pulled the puck around Fowler, before holding onto it patiently to outwait Dostal and fire the puck into the net.

The Ducks tied it three minutes later as Terry made up for failing to score on a breakaway earlier in the period.

Zellweger’s shot hit Leo Carlsson in the leg and caromed right to Terry at the side of the net where he buried his 20th goal and 50th point.
