Ducks Upset Playoff Bound Flames

Rookies Sam Steel and Max Jones scored first-period goals and the Anaheim Ducks continued their strong finish to a lost season with a 3-1 victory over the Calgary Flames.

Captain Ryan Getzlaf also scored and Ryan Miller made 25 saves in his first victory since March 5 for the Ducks.

Anaheim's streak of six straight playoff appearances will end next week thanks to its disastrous 5-21-4 midseason slump.

Derek Ryan scored and David Rittich stopped 29 shots for the Pacific Division champion Flames, who will start the post-season next week as the top seed in the Western Conference.

Johnny Gaudreau got his 98th point with an assist on Ryan's first-period goal, extending his scoring streak to five games and getting close to his first 100-point season.
