The Flames took a 1-0 lead at 1:42 of the first period when Boyd gained control of the puck in the slot before he turned and fired a shot past Anaheim goalie J.S. Giguere.
Five minutes later the Ducks tied the game when Bertuzzi converted a pass from Ryan Getzlaf during an power play. Late in the first, Bobby Ryan fanned on a shot from the slot but the puck went right to Parros who was situated at the side of the net. Parros quickly snapped a shot past Calgary goalie Miikka Kiprusoff to give the Ducks a one-goal lead.
Kunitz then tipped in a point shot by Scott Niedermayer during an early second-period power play to give the Ducks a 3-1 lead.
The Flames tied it on goals by Iginla and Huselius in the second period. Iginla took a cross-ice pass from Conroy and roofed a shot past Giguere. Huselius stole the puck from Scott Niedermayer behind the Anaheim net and snapped a shot to the top corner to tie the game.
In the third, Iginla's slap shot from the point went off of Chris Pronger's chest and into the net behind Giguere before Huselius rounded out the scoring with an empty-net goal.
Notes: The Ducks fell to 4-1-1 since the return of Scott Niedermayer to the lineup. ... For Parros, it was just his fourth goal in 126 career NHL games and first in 39 games since last scoring against the Chicago Blackhawks on March 28, 2007. ... Eric Nystrom had an assist on Boyd's goal to break a 17-game pointless streak.
