Selanne scored on a breakaway, taking a slick pass from Jakob Silfverberg and beating Joey MacDonald between the legs.

The Ducks managed just three shots in those five minutes, dropping to an NHL-worst 1 for 22 on the power play this season. After Selannes goal sent the Ducks into the third period with a two-goal lead, Hudler trimmed the Flames deficit when Kris Russells shot from the blue line deflected off his body and pinballed past Fasth for his third goal of the season.
