Ducks Look to Put Out the Flames

Tuesday, April 28

The Ducks were the top team in the Western Conference, giving them home-ice advantage in their upcoming second-round series against Calgary. And that's proven to be a tremendous advantage.

The Flames have lost 20 straight regular-season games at Honda Center (0-15-5), and two of three games in the building when the teams played in the first round of the 2006 playoffs.

The teams have a number of similarities, among them remarkable resilience. The Ducks had an NHL-high 12 wins when trailing after two periods while the Flames were third with 10.

And that trend played out in each team's first-round series. The Ducks trailed entering the third period in the first three games of their four-game sweep against the Winnipeg Jets but rallied to win all three. The Ducks became the first team in playoff history to win three games in a row when trailing after two periods.

Each team also depends on its top line for production. Left wing Corey Perry led the Ducks in goals (three) and points (seven) in the first round, and center Ryan Getzlaf had four points and a plus-3 rating while averaging 22:26 of ice time per game, second among all forwards.

This will be the second time the teams have faced off in the playoffs; the Ducks won a seven-game series in 2006.

The Los Angeles Sports Council is a non-profit civic organization whose primary purpose is to promote economic development through sports in the Los Angeles/Orange County area.

On behalf of the community, the Sports Council bids against other cities for the right to host major sporting events, often staging or helping to stage events after successful bids.

Founded in 1988, the Sports Council's efforts represent more than $1 billion in overall economic impact for the region and range from NCAA Championships to the Super Bowl, and from the U.S Olympic Trials to the World Cup.

The Council also works in support of each of the area's established sports teams and facilities.
