After winning the faceoff, the puck finally came back to Nazem Kadri and his shot was deflected in front by Sharangovich for his 29th goal.

Calgary took its first lead of the night when Kuzmenko took a pass from Kadri, cut into the slot to avoid Zegras, then got around Fowler, before patiently hanging on to beat Dostal and fire the puck into the net .

The Ducks tied it up three minutes later as Terry made up for his miss on a breakaway earlier in the period.

Zellweger’s shot hit Leo Carlsson in the leg and headed to Terry at the edge of the net where he scored his 20th goal and 50th point.
