Preview: Ducks at Flames

Anaheim is expected to recall Anton Khudobin from San Diego of the American Hockey League and if Gibson misses time, Frederik Andersen gets another shot as the club’s No. 1 goalie. The Ducks are 10-2-1 in their last 13 games as they surge toward the top of the Pacific Division standings and the thought of them missing the Stanley Cup playoffs after a 1-7-2 start is long-forgotten as they begin the Pacific Northwest portion of their season-high long trek. Anaheim will also be without Chris Stewart for 4-to-8 weeks after the power forward had his jaw broken in a fight with Columbus defenseman Dalton Prout on Thursday – a significant blow seeing as Stewart was thriving on a line with captain Ryan Getzlaf and newly-acquired David Perron. Calgary saw its three-game winning streak snapped with a 4-1 loss in Arizona on Friday and is eight points behind Nashville for the final wild-card spot in the Western Conference.<BR><BR><STRONG>TV: </STRONG>4 p.m. ET, Prime Ticket, FSN San Diego (Anaheim), Sportsnet West (Calgary)
