The opening frame begin with Winnik’s sixth of the year at the 1:15 mark into the game. After that, the first was fairly uneventful as Fasth stopped all 10 of the Flames’ shots.
Bobby Ryan kicked off the Ducks’ attack late in the middle frame at the 13:38 mark with his seventh of the year. Sheldon Souray netted his fifth of the year to extend the Ducks’ lead. Fasth continued to douse the Flames stopping all 12 shots he faced.
The Ducks had another great period in the final frame. Fasth continued to stand on his head and preserve the shutout. Captain Ryan Getzlaf, who just signed a contract extension, notched his 10th of the year to seal the game at the 16:18 mark.
The Ducks will take the ice again on Sunday night at 5:00 p.m. PST at home against the St. Louis Blues.
