The streak is over.
The Calgary Flames ended a 29-game losing streak at Anaheim’s Honda Center with a 2-0 victory over the Ducks on Monday night. It was the longest such streak in NHL history.
The run included 22 regular season games (0-17-5) and seven more in postseason play, per NHL.com’s David Satriano.
To put it into perspective, the last time the Flames won a regular season game on the road in Anaheim (Jan. 19, 2004, per NHL Public Relations), the Ducks were still Mighty.
The key contributors in the winning effort included goaltender Mike Smith, who stopped all 43 shots he faced, and Sean Monahan and Mikael Backlund, who were responsible for Calgary’s two goals.
