Alex Killorn scored twice as Ducks douse Flames

Ducks Flames

Alex Killorn scored twice and Troy Terry scored once in a three-point performance to lead the visiting Anaheim Ducks to a 5-3 comeback victory over the Calgary Flames on Tuesday to snap a five-game skid.

Mason McTavish and Cam Fowler also scored, while Olen Zellweger collected a career-best three assists as the Ducks (25-47-7, 54 points) won for only the second time in 14 outings. Goaltender Lukas Dostal made 21 saves in the finale of a five-game road trip.

Andrei Kuzmenko scored twice and Yegor Sharangovich added a single goal for the Flames (34-35-5, 73 points). Goalie Jacob Markstrom stopped 24 shots, while Mackenzie Weegar, Martin Pospisil and Nazem Kadri each collected two assists.

Terry’s 20th goal of the season cued the Anaheim comeback from trailing 2-1. He pounced on a rebound for the power-play goal at the 13:36 mark of the second period.

Fowler put the Ducks ahead for good with his fifth of the campaign 112 seconds into the third period. Fowler joined the rush and, upon receiving Terry’s drop pass, found the mark.

Killorn made it a 4-2 game at 5:09 of the final frame when he cut across the slot to get the puck and lifted a wrist shot into the top corner.

Kuzmenko’s second goal of the game, which came when Pospisil’s pass ricocheted off his skate into the net for his 17th of the season and fourth in a three-game span, pulled Calgary within one with 10:26 remaining.

However, Killorn responded with a rebound goal – his 17th of the season – less than two minutes later to round out the scoring in what was a back-and-forth affair between two clubs who will fail to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs.

McTavish opened the scoring at 14:03 of the clash when he deflected Zellweger’s long point shot for his 19th of the season, but the Flames responded with a pair of tallies.

Sharangovich notched his 29th of the season with a deflection for the power-play goal at 2:30 of the second period, and then Kuzmenko scored his first of the game at 10:26 by cutting through at the defense and slipping a shot through Dostal’s legs.
