After watching a Calgary team with nothing but pride on line beat the Red Wings on Wednesday, Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau isn’t about to take the Flames lightly tonight at the Scotiabank Saddledome.
“Calgary’s a great example of a team not throwing in the towel,” said Boudreau, per NHL.com. “To beat a hungry Detroit team in their last game says something to me. We better be ready.”
The Ducks are winless in their last three and a modest 5-7-2 since starting the season with an impressive 22-3-4 record. Two nights ago, they dropped a 3-2 overtime decision at home to Columbus.
Anaheim is still on track to win the Pacific Division and finish with the second seed in the Western Conference; however, Boudreau wants to make that official.
“We’ve got some guys banged up pretty good right now that are still playing through them,” he said. “We’d like to win and be able to, if it’s possible, rest some guys.”
