Backlund added his second of the night 1:31 into the second period, this time shorthanded. Firing a wrist shot past Andersen as he broke in alone off the wing, it was the Flames' second short-handed goal of the night and NHL-leading 11th of the season. Backlund has four of them, tying him for top spot with Boston's Brad Marchand and Tampa Bay's Tyler Johnson.
Mark Giordano, TJ Galiardi, Ladislav Smid and Corban Knight with his first NHL goal also scored for Calgary. Andrew Cogliano and Nick Bonino scored for Anaheim. The Pacific Division-leading Ducks are 0-2-0 in their last four games.
CANUCKS 3, JETS 2, SO
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Chris Higgins had the only goal in the shootout and Vancouver beat Winnipeg, rebounding from a third-period collapse in its last game.
The Canucks, 2-4-1 in their last seven games, allowed seven goals in the third period in a 7-4 home loss to the New York Islanders on Monday night.
Alexandre Burrows, with the first and second goals of his injury-marred season, tied it 2 at 11:17 of the third period. Andrew Ladd and Michael Frolik scored for the Winnipeg. The Jets have lost five straight.
