However, the Flames handed the Ducks their first regulation loss
on November 10. Miikka Kiprusoff made 37 saves and Daymond
Langkow and Tony Amonte scored 19 seconds apart in the first

However, the Ducks bounced back from that defeat to lose only

The Ducks have won their last three home contests against
Calgary, which has gone 1-9-3 in its last 13 matchups at the
