It’s not a trend the Calgary Flames hope to continue against the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center on Wednesday Adidas Brian Gibbons Jersey , but they’ve made a habit of coming from behind to win games this season.The Flames have won an NHL-high five games when trailing after two periods this season. No other team in the league has won more than two games in that situation.Calgary (9-5-1) most recently rallied from 3-2 deficit at the start of the third period against the visiting Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night and scored three goals in the third period of the 5-3 win, the fourth straight victory for the Flames.Article continues below ...“It’s obviously not ideal for us to be down games,” Calgary forward Sean Monahan told the Calgary Sun. “I mean, we’re not going to change the way we play, but that’s just the way it’s going right now.”The Ducks (6-7-3) ended a seven-game losing streak with a 3-2 overtime win against the visiting Columbus Blue Jackets on Sunday, but were unable to build off that momentum and lost 4-1 at the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday.“The good thing is, there’s no time to really think about this,” Ducks forward Patrick Eaves told FSN Prime Ticket after the loss. “We’re up against a good team coming in (Wednesday) that’ll be ready for us, and we’ll be ready as well.”Anaheim will turn to veteran goaltender Ryan Miller after No. 1 goalie John Gibson played against the Kings.Miller last played Oct. 30 against the visiting Philadelphia Flyers and gave up three goals on 36 shots in the 3-2 loss. Miller has not faced the Flames as a member of the Ducks. He last played against Calgary while with the Vancouver Canucks in 2016-17 Adidas Carter Rowney Jersey , going 3-0-0 against the Flames that season.Monahan is among the Flames who is off to a red-hot start. He has 18 points (eight goals, 10 assists) in 15 games this season.Johnny Gaudreau has 19 points (six goals, 13 assists) and Matthew Tkachuk has 18 points (six goals, 12 assists), putting all three in the top 13 in the NHL in points. Only the Colorado Avalanche has three players in the top 13 in points as well.Michael Frolik is third on the Flames with seven goals, scoring one in each of the past two games.“It gives you a little more confidence, for sure,” Frolik told the Calgary Sun. “And I think hockey is all about confidence. When you score a few, the confidence goes higher. Hopefully Adidas Jaycob Megna Jersey , I’ll keep it going and just keep working hard. Anytime you can help the team, it’s nice.”Anaheim center Ryan Getzlaf returned Tuesday night after missing the win against the Blue Jackets with an upper-body injury. He had seven points (two goals, five assists) in a four-game point streak leading up to Tuesday, but went scoreless against the Kings.The Ducks are 2-6-2 with Getzlaf in the lineup this season and 4-1-1 without.Calgary has struggled to win in Anaheim for more than a decade.The Flames lost 25 straight games in the building between Jan. 19, 2004 to Oct. 9, 2017. They ended the streak with a 2-0 win early last season, but then lost their most recent game at Honda Center 2-1 on Dec. 29. COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) After dropping the first two playoff games at home in overtime, the Washington Capitals picked up momentum that only got stronger as they took down the Columbus Blue Jackets in four straight.Now they’ll strive to keep the intensity high as they advance to a second-round rematch with the Pittsburgh Penguins.The Capitals Adidas Max Jones Jersey , who manhandled the Blue Jackets 6-3 on Monday to cap the opening round series, are looking to avenge second-round playoff losses to Pittsburgh in each of the past two seasons.”I can’t wait to take a step forward,” said Washington star forward Alex Ovechkin, who had two goals on Monday, including his 50th playoff tally. ”They know how to play, they know the pressure. It’s a huge series for us.”Goaltender Braden Holtby relieved a struggling Philipp Grubauer in Game 2 and was great the rest of the way. He had 35 saves Monday in a game in which his team was outshot 38-28. Fifteen of the saves were in the third period when the desperate Blue Jackets turned up the heat.”(He’s) been fantastic,” Ovechkin said. ”He’s stepping up big-time. He’s top goalie in the league, and he showed it today and he showed it in the series.”For his part, Washington coach Barry Trotz wasn’t ready to talk about Pittsburgh yet after a taut opening-round series.”Please let me breathe Adidas Andrej Sustr Jersey ,” he said. ”We haven’t taken a breath since this started.”Chandler Stephenson had a goal and an assist, and Dimitry Orlov, Devante Smith-Pelly and Lars Eller also scored Monday for Washington, which never trailed in OT in Game 5 on Saturday. The Capitals won each of the three games in Columbus.One of the stories for Washington was its ability to defend Columbus’ power play. After the Blue Jackets went 4 for 8 with a man advantage in the first two games, the Caps held them to 0 for 16 in the last four. Meanwhile, Washington took good advantage of Columbus penalties, scoring on the power play in each of the six games.”I think going into the year there wasn’t a lot of people who said we would finish first in the Metro, and we did that,” Trotz said. ”And it’s just creating a pretty consistent culture Adidas Alex Galchenyuk Jersey , and it’s having good players too. It was a tremendous test for us. We didn’t get off to a good start and had to dig ourselves out.”Trotz said he leaned on veterans Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, Evgeny Kuznetsov and others to keep the Capitals on an even keel through the tumult of the season.”We’ve had lots of different adversity through this year and in the past, and we’ve grown up a little bit in some ways,” he said. ”We understand that our core group is really, really strong, they believe in each other. We’ve got a lot of young guys in the room. We’ve had to rely on our core to push us forward, and we have.”—
