NHL Standings

Calgary will close out a three game road swing with a visit to Honda Center to take on the Anaheim Ducks Wednesday night. These two met just two games ago with the Flames dispatching the Ducks 6-1 in Calgary. Since then the Flames have clinched the Western Conference and the Pacific Division and home ice throughout the Western Conference playoffs. Anaheim meanwhile sits in 14th place in the Western Conference and will finish up their season FAR out of the playoffs for 2018-19. So, basically only a few things have changed since they played on March 29th.

This is Calgary’s final road game of the regular season and a win in Anaheim would mean the Flames would take the season series from the Ducks for the first time 2004.
