Gibson backstops Ducks to sweep of Flames

The Anaheim Ducks swept the Calgary Flames from the National Hockey League playoffs with a 3-1 win Wednesday. Johnson was pulled for an extra attacker with nearly two and a half minutes remaining, and Getzlaf converted an empty-netter in the final seconds. They're a resilient bunch. "We battled right to the bitter end".

After wrapping up their 4-0 Western Conference first-round win over the Flames, the Ducks face the victor of the series between the Edmonton Oilers and San Jose Sharks, who are tied 2-2, in the second round of the playoffs. John Gibson earned the win in net.

"Obviously I wasn't the best the other night", Gibson said. Should they win tonight, they'll head back to the Honda Center, where the team is allegedly cursed.

The Flames, Minnesota Wild, Chicago Blackhawks and Columbus Blue Jackets all lost the first three games of their playoff series.

"That's something that stings", Monahan said.

Brian Elliott started in net for the Flames, but was yanked after giving up a soft goal to Eaves at 5:38 of the first period.

"We need to get our swagger back and come in and put the same game on the table for a longer period of time", he said. Braden Holtby made 30 saves for Washington. In this series we had a little bit of everything. It's not on him. "We want to continue to grow our group". "We play together. We win and we lose together". Chad Johnson stopped 20 of the 21 shots he faced.

Trying desperately to win in front of their hometown fans, the Flames outshot the Ducks 12-7 in the third period but weren't able to notch the equalizer.

"You realize how slim the margin is between winning and losing", Flames captain Mark Giordano said. "If you rewind the series you can see some tipping points where we made some mistakes". "Every decision was scrutinized and analyzed and looked over and talked about with everybody in the organization, looking at game tape and all the coaches", he said. "I thought again tonight we didn't have the start we wanted, but after that I really felt we had a strong push".

Erik Karlsson's shot from the blue line was intentionally wide and Ryan, getting behind rookie Charlie McAvoy, poked the puck past Tuukka Rask (26 saves) and just over the goal line past a diving Zdeno Chara.

He wasn't as sharp on Anaheim's third shot as Eaves turned and fired a shot from a bad angle that somehow snuck through his pads.

Elliott was the victim of a bad bounce on Ryan Getzlaf's bank-shot-looking goal to win Game 2, but the veteran struggled throughout Game 3, allowing a seemingly harmless Shea Theodore shot to glance in off his glove and letting a sharp-angle Corey Perry try turn into a rebound that bounced in off Calgary defenseman Michael Stone for the overtime victor. He entered having stopping 114 of the Wild's first 117 shots in the series.
