CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 38 saves to help the Anaheim Ducks beat the Calgary Flames 4-1 on Thursday night.
Giguere, benched in the third period Tuesday night in the Ducks' 4-0 loss in Vancouver, allowed only Alex Tanguay's power-play goal early in the first period.
Kunitz gave Anaheim a 2-1 lead with 41 seconds left in the first period.
Getzlaf, showcasing the playmaking ability that made him a fan favorite in his four seasons with the Western Hockey League's Calgary Hitmen, carried the puck into the Flames' zone, made a slick fake on defenseman Dion Phaneuf, then slid the puck across to Kunitz left uncovered in the slot for an easy tap-in.
Getzlaf, the 22-year-old star who signed a $26.5 million, five-year contract extension last week, has points in nine of the past 10 games, amassing six goals and eight assists over that span.
With the victory, the Ducks improved to 8-3-3 in their last 14 games, and moved within two points of first-place Dallas in the tight Pacific Division.
Calgary has lost four of its last five games.
Notes: Jarome Iginla played in his 804th career game, moving him past Hall of Fame defenseman Al MacInnis into first place on the Flames' career list. Iginla ranks second in goals (337), third in points (698) and fourth in assists (361). ... Calgary is 3-for-35 with the extra man in the past eight games.
