Numbers For Nerds

Fans of both teams are well aware of the Disneyland Curse. Any young Flames fan that is still in elementary school was not alive for the last Calgary regular-season victory in Southern California, which came way back on January 14, 2004. Although they haven't been dominated as much as their opponents, the Ducks' road record in this series since the last Flames win in Anaheim is a very unimpressive 7-13-3 (no ties). Putting a dent in that record will be tough against a Calgary team that's in the midst of their best home win streak in their 43-year history.
