ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Early in his first season with Calgary, Mike Smith is already helping the Flames purge some unwanted history.
Smith made 43 saves and the Flames ended a 25-game skid at Honda Center with a 2-0 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Monday night.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Cam Fowler has returned to practice with the Anaheim Ducks, and the All-Star defenseman could be on target for a quick return to the Stanley Cup contenders' lineup.
Nearly three weeks after injuring his knee, Fowler skated with his teammates at Honda Center on Sunday when they returned from a three-day break after sweeping Calgary out of the first round of the postseason.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — A first-round sweep opens the door for some welcome news for the Anaheim Ducks: a bit of rest and maybe some help on the bench.
Injured defensemen Sami Vatanen and Cam Fowler are closing in on a return to the Ducks, who haven't lost in regulation in 18 games dating to March 10. The Ducks beat Calgary in four games to open the playoffs despite largely playing without two of their top three defensemen.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Ducks defenseman Sami Vatanen was a late scratch from Game 2 of Anaheim's first-round playoff series with the Calgary Flames.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Ryan Getzlaf scored a power-play goal in the opening seconds, and he leveled Calgary's Mark Giordano with a statement-making check in the third period.
There will be no slow start for the Anaheim Ducks in these Stanley Cup playoffs. Their captain simply wouldn't allow it.
CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Calgary Flames general manager Brad Treliving sent a shot across the bow of the Anaheim Ducks on Monday ahead of their playoff series.
"For someone to suggest that Mark Giordano is a dirty player or it was an intentional hit, those are asinine comments," Treliving said. "I don't think making comments about opposing players . . . there's a method to the madness there. It's to try to put something in the officials' heads going into the series."
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Anaheim Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler will miss at least the start of the postseason after a knee-on-knee hit from Calgary Flames captain Mark Giordano.
Ducks general manager Bob Murray said Thursday that his All-Star defenseman could be sidelined between two and six weeks. The Ducks expect to know more after further tests, but Fowler definitely will miss the start of the Ducks' playoff run.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Cam Fowler crumpled immediately after Mark Giordano's knee-to-knee hit, and he couldn't leave the ice under his own power.
Although the Anaheim Ducks moved significantly closer to a fifth straight Pacific Division title Tuesday night, postseason success seems farther away without their All-Star defenseman.
CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Johnny Gaudreau showed off a little bit of everything in his arsenal to lead the Calgary Flames to a 5-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday night.
Gaudreau set up goals by Sean Monahan and Michael Stone to give the Flames an early lead, then scored the second of two Calgary goals 50 seconds apart early in the second period.
CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Brian Elliott was a long way from being healthy but you couldn't tell from the way he played against the Dallas Stars.

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — David Backes gave the Bruins a sigh of relief when he returned to the ice. Then he gave them a lift just a few minutes later.
