The Ducks are 1-0-1 against the Flames this season.

The Anaheim Ducks look to snap their two-game losing streak Friday night as they host the Calgary Flames at the Honda Center. The Ducks begin play Friday night seven points out of a playoff spot in the Western Conference, and over the next two nights face two teams also on the outside looking in, but ahead of the Ducks.

The Ducks (27-27-10) however are facing a Flames team on a worse streak than they are experiencing. Calgary (28-24-11) has lost four straight games and five of their last six contests, but three of those losses brought a point as they came in overtime. The Ducks on Saturday travel up Interstate 5 to battle the Los Angeles Kings.

"It's against two opponents that we're chasing," right wing Corey Perry told NHL.com. "You win both and it's four points. You never know where that can put you at the end of the day. They are probably the two biggest games of the year right now."

Perry has seven goals and two assists in his last 10 games, but has been held scoreless in his last two contests.

Both meetings between these two teams this season have gone to an extra period. The Ducks lost 1-0 in overtime in Calgary on January 12, then beat the Flames 3-2 in a shootout in Anaheim on Feburary 6.

Friday night's 7 p.m. PST game will be televised by KDOC. For more news and notes on Ducks hockey, be sure to read Anaheim Calling.
