Miller stops 37 shots as Ducks edge Flames


Ryan Miller made 37 saves to move into a tie for 17th place on the all-time wins list as the host Anaheim Ducks held off the Calgary Flames for a 3-2 victory on Wednesday night.

With his 372nd career win, Ryan matched the total of Andy Moog, who played with four teams from 1980-98. Miller also moved within two wins of tying John Vanbiesbrouck for the most NHL victories by a United States-born goalie.

Ryan Getzlaf scored the game-winner in the third period for the Ducks, who won for the second time in three games. Anaheim's Jakob Silfverberg and Adam Henrique had first-period goals.

Matthew Tkachuk and Mark Jankowski scored for Calgary, which had its four-game win streak snapped. Mike Smith had 21 saves for the Flames, who have won just once in their past 28 regular-season games in Anaheim dating back to Jan. 19, 2004.

Silfverberg gave Anaheim a 1-0 lead at the 8:37 mark of the first period with his fifth goal of the season. He blasted a slap shot from the top of the right circle that handcuffed Smith, bouncing down off his glove and then trickling through his pads. It marked the first time in eight games that the Ducks scored first.

Henrique made it 2-0 a few minutes later when Smith left a rebound of a Josh Manson shot from the right point to the left side. Henrique then pounced on the loose puck and fired a shot over Smith's blocker for his fourth goal of the season.

Tkachuk cut Calgary's deficit to 2-1 with a power-play goal near the end of the opening period. He deflected an Elias Lindholm shot from the right point with the shaft of his stick and under the crossbar for his third goal in four games and seventh of the season.

Jankowski tied it early in the third period with an unassisted short-handed goal, knocking the puck away from Anaheim defenseman Brandon Montour near center ice and then coming in and beating Miller top corner for his first goal of the season.

However, Anaheim came right back to take a 3-2 lead just 27 seconds later. Rickard Rakell drove to the net, and Getzlaf picked up a loose puck to the left of the goal and beat Smith with a backhand on the short side for the game-winner.

Calgary pulled Smith with 2:30 remaining and then had a six-on-four advantage for the final 1:14 after Rakell picked up a slashing penalty on Johnny Gaudreau. The Flames didn't manage a shot until 12 seconds remained, when Tkachuk had a pair of close-in attempts that Miller stopped.
