Recap


FLAMES 5, DUCKS 2: Akim Aliu scored his first two NHL goals and defensemen Jay Bouwmeester and Anton Babchuk scored 25 seconds apart late in the second period to break a tie as host Calgary spoiled what could have been Teemu Selanne’s final game.

Selanne, 41, is expected to decide by July 1 whether to return to the Ducks for a 20th NHL season. He ranks 12th all-time with 663 goals and 19th overall with 1,406 points.

Selanne played all 82 games this season.

Anaheim’s Bobby Ryan scored twice and finished with 31 goals, marking his fourth straight 30-goal campaign.

Aliu, a native of Nigeria, made it 1-0 when his centering pass from the sideboards bounced off Anaheim defenseman Luca Sbisa’s skate and past goaltender Jonas Hiller at the four-minute mark.

Ryan tied it with a power-play goal when his one-timer from the point off Ryan Getzlaf’s feed found its way through Henrik Karlsson’s pads at 13:33 of the second period.

Bouwmeester’s shot from the point made it through a maze of players at 19:17 and Babchuk’s point blast beat Hiller short side at 19:42.

Aliu's second goal came when he was stationed about 20 feet in front Hiller and had a Bouwmeester shot carom off his body at 7:24 of the third period to make it 4-1.
