Early in his first season with Calgary, Mike Smith is already helping the Flames purge some unwanted history.
Smith made 43 saves and the Flames ended a 25-game skid at Honda Center with a 2-0 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Monday night.
Authentic Youth Nick Foles Jersey Calgary hadn’t won at Anaheim since Jan. 19, 2004. It ended that streak behind a gem from Smith, acquired in a trade with Arizona in the offseason.
When you play a team that long and you’re not on the winning part of it, I think it gets old pretty fast, Smith said. I’ve been on teams when it’s happened to me. I wanted to help this team get over that hump.
St. Louis led the Islanders 2-0 in the third period before New York scored twice in the final seven minutes of regulation to force overtime. The Blues also led the Penguins by two goals in the third before conceding twice, and they surrendered both goals against Dallas in the final 20 minutes.

We have to make sure we’re not getting caught in this cycle because, when the score is tied, or earlier in the game when both teams are pushing, that’s when we play our best hockey, Yeo said. We have to make sure that we continue to do that for 60 minutes.
The Rangers claimed forward Adam Cracknell off waivers on Monday from the Dallas Stars. Cracknell played under Rangers assistant coach Lindy Ruff in Dallas. New York scratched 18-year-old rookie forward Filip Chytil against the Canadiens, dressing 11 forwards, after Chytil appeared in the first two games of the season.
The Hurricanes won their opener for the first time in seven years. Carolina fell behind Minnesota 3-1 in the second period, then scored three consecutive goals before the Wild tied the game with one second left in regulation. Carolina’s Jaccob Slavin netted the only goal of the shootout.
This will give us confidence, Peters said. There’s a lot of areas to work on. The whole thing for us is to realize our potential.
