Flames defeated in Anaheim, suffer first regulation loss

Oct 17, 2013, 12:57 AM EDT

The dream of going undefeated in regulation during the regular season is over for the Calgary Flames.

The Flames dropped a 3-2 decision on the road against the Anaheim Ducks, giving the visitors from Alberta their first regulation loss of this season.

Calgary’s record now stands at 3-1-2. The loss comes even after the Flames outshot the Ducks 35-22, and that’s including 28-12 over the final two periods.

The Ducks’ winning goal came off the stick of 43-year-old Teemu Selanne, who had gone to the bench for a new stick after breaking his original seconds earlier. No sooner did he get back into the play, he found himself going in all alone on Flames goalie Joey MacDonald. (Click here to watch the video)

Selanne buried his shot five-hole on MacDonald, giving the Ducks a 3-1 lead heading into the second intermission.

    I only saw the third period but was very happy with how Calgary played, unlucky not to tie it but credit to Fausth (sp?) he played very well and made some great saves for the Ducks. It’s been several years since I’ve seen a Flames team show this much hustle, if they continue to work as hard as they have they’ll be in pretty much every game and probably end up winning more than experts thought they would.

    But that’s cart before the horse, I think if they can come home with 5 or 6 points from this trip it will be measured successfully.
