Ducks Ice Down Flames


Paul Kariya scored twice and Teemu Selanne continued his assault on the 50-goal mark to lead the Anaheim Mighty Ducks to a 5-1 victory over the Calgary Flames on Sunday night.

Selanne scored his NHL-leading 43rd goal to give him six goals in his last three games. The all-star forward, who tied Washington's Peter Bondra for the league goal-scoring title with 52 last year, is bidding to score at least 50 for the third straight season.

Selanne also had two assists to give him 94 points, moving him past Philadelphia's Eric Lindros for second in league scoring.
