The Anaheim Ducks took the first 2 games at home, and game 3 moves onto Calgary.
The Calgary Flames took complete control of the first 2 periods, dominating the Ducks with a 3 goal lead. The Ducks had to take out goaltender John Gibson and replaced him with Jonathan Bernier, which proved to be the right choice.
The Ducks would score a goal in the 2nd period, yet they still trailed the Flames by 2 goals. In the 3rd period, the Ducks rallied back, and came back with 2 unanswered goals, tying the game and forcing overtime. Corey Perry would score the game winning goal in overtime, beating the Calgary Flames and making this series 3-0 and the biggest comeback in franchise history.
