(SportsNetwork. Curry Shoes Sale .com) - The Calgary Flames will try to enter the All-Star break with their longest winning streak of the season when they visit the NHL- leading Anaheim Ducks for Wednesdays clash at Honda Center. The Flames have matched a season high with wins in four straight games, marking the third time the surprising club has posted four victories in a row in 2014-15. Calgary, which last won five consecutive tilts from Jan. 22-Feb. 1, also can complete a perfect five-game homestand tonight before beginning a six-game stay at the Saddledome on Tuesday against Buffalo. The Flames two most recent wins have come in overtime, including Mondays triumph over the reigning Stanley Cup champions. Calgary downed the Los Angeles Kings, 2-1, thanks to Dennis Widemans game- winning goal in the final minute of the extra session, although the Flames didnt immediately know they won. Wideman fired a shot on net from the left circle that appeared to hit the crossbar and come out the other side. However, when play was stopped and the refs got a chance to review, it was determined that the puck hit the camera in the back of the net and came out, and Wideman was credited with his 12th goal of the season for the win. When I shot it, I thought it was in, said Wideman. They came at us hard, theyre a big team that knows how to win. I thought we did a good job of limiting grade-A scoring chances. Sean Monahan had the other goal for Calgary, tying the contest at 1-1 with 6:05 left in the third period. Joni Ortio made 33 saves for the Flames, who have won five straight on the road and are 14-9-1 as the visiting team this season. The win moved the Flames one point in front of the Kings for the last wild card spot in the Western Conference. Like Calgary, the Ducks also enter their final game before the All-Star break on a four-game winning streak and Anaheim also boasts a 6-1-0 record in January. The recent hot stretch is just part of what has been a phenomenal regular season so far for the Ducks. Anaheim is leading the Pacific Division by 11 points over second-place Vancouver and is one ahead of Nashville for the most points in the NHL with 66. Anaheims most recent win also came against the Kings. The Ducks recorded a 3-2 win Saturday in L.A. with Jakob Silfverberg scoring the only goal in the shootout. Silfverberg was Anaheims second shooter in the final phase and snapped a low shot past Jonathan Quick on the blocker side. The winger is 7-for-11 this season in shootouts. I wanted to switch it up a little bit, said Silfverberg about his shootout attempt. I was going glove side a lot (recently). Frederik Andersen then stopped Marian Gaboriks backhand attempt to give Anaheim the extra point. Andersen also turned aside Jeff Carter and Anze Kopitar earlier in the shootout and finished the contest with 26 saves. Sami Vatanen scored the tying goal in the third period for the Ducks. The Ducks are 7-4 in shootouts and improved to 22-0-6 in games decided by one goal. They also are the only team in the league without a regulation one-goal loss. Anaheim will emerge from the All-Star break next Tuesday when it visits the Vancouver Canucks. The Ducks are 17-5-3 as the host this season.

The Kootenay Ice captain won the Western Hockey Leagues player-of-the-year award Wednesday. The leagues general managers and coaches voted for Reinhart over Western Conference finalist Mitch Holmberg, a 62-goal scorer for the Spokane Chiefs. Reinhart set a franchise record for assists in a season with 69 and, combined with 36 goals in 60 games, the 18-year-old from Vancouver tied for fourth in WHL scoring. But the son of former NHL defenceman Paul Reinhart was a stellar two-way player for the Ice with a plus-24 rating. He posted a torrid 48 points in 22 games from Dec. 4 to Feb. 28. Central Scouting ranks Reinhart third among North American skaters for the NHL draft, up from fourth in Januarys midterm rankings. The Four Broncos Trophy that goes to the player of the year is given in memory of four Swift Current Broncos who died in a team bus crash in 1986. Reinhart, six foot one and 186 pounds, also earned the WHLs sportsmanlike award for his paltry 11 minutes in penalties. "Both of those awards say a lot about his character," Ice coach Ryan McGill said. "Mitch Holmberg is one heck of a player, but Sam is the complete package. He is the smartest player in the Western Hockey League not only with the puck, but without the puck." Reinharts brother Griffin is an Edmonton Oil Kings defenceman who was drafted fourth overall by the New York Islanders two years ago. Another brother Max is a Calgary Flames prospect currently playing in the AHL. Sam and Griffin both played for the Canadian team that finished fourth in the world junior hockey championship in Malmo, Sweden, in January. Sam was a dominant player upon his return to the Ice. "It was a good year individually and as a team," Sam said. "I think our depth really showed in the second half and ultimately made it easier on me to produce offensively." The Ice were eliminated in the second round of playoffs in a seven-game series with the Medicine Hat Tigers. Reinhart had six goals and 17 assists in 13 playoff game. Hes begun preparing for the NHL combine May 25-31 in Toronto. Reinhart intends to play in the NHL next season. "Im confident in my abilities right now to do that," he said. "I learned a lot this year, played in a lot of situations. I think thats only going to benefit me down the road. "Im excited for it and Im ultimately preparing for training camp in September where ever that may be." Holmberg, a 21-year-old winger from Sherwood Park, Alta., won the WHLs scoring trophy. Hes only the second player to score over 60 goals in a season in the last 13 years. Holmberg spent his entire five-year career with the Spokane Chiefs and recently joined the Bakersfield Condors for the ECHL playoffs. The Kelowna Rockets picked up a pair of major player trophies with Jordon Cooke named the seasons best goalie and centre Nick Merkley taking the rookie awaard. Air Jordan 9 Sale. The 16-year-old Merkley, from Calgary, compiled 25 goals and 33 assists in 66 games. Cooke posted a 39-7-0-4 record with four shutouts. The 20-year-old from Leduc, Alta., had a 2.28 goals-against average and a save percentage of .922. Derek Pouliot of the Portland Winterhawks was chosen top defenceman. The 19-year-old from Weyburn, Sask., contributed 19 goals and 53 assists in 58 games and posted a plus-minus of plus-40. Pouliot is a first-round draft pick of the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Victoria Royals swept the hockey management awards with former NHL winger Dave Lowry taking the coaching award and general manager Cam Hope named executive of the year. The Royals finished third overall in the Western Conference with a 48-20-1-3 record. Saskatoon Blades defenceman Nelson Nogier earned the scholastic award with a 96 per cent average in his Grade 11 studies, while the Calgary Hitmen took team scholastic honours. Moose Jaw Warriors captain Sam Fioretti was given the humanitarian award for his work in anti-bullying and reading programs. Nathan Wieler from Regina was chosen the WHLs top official. Prior to the awards luncheon, the WHLs board of governors approved the sale of the Regina Pats and Prince George Cougars to new owners. The Cougars ownership group includes local businessmen as well as alumni and NHL players Dan Hamhuis and Eric Brewer. "Its great to have WHL alumni like Dan Hamhuis and Eric Brewer, both former Prince George Cougars, who will do a great job," WHL commissioner Ron Robson said. "These guys are not just there because of their names. Theyre there because they want to contribute and be actively involved and thats great news for us." A group of Regina businessmen headed by Anthony Marquart takes over the Pats from Russ and Diane Parker, who have owned the team for 19 seasons. Both sales are expected to be finalized next month. Robson says the WHL has taken a hands-on role with the struggling Lethbridge Hurricanes, who have been losing games, money and attendance in recent years. Some players left the community-owned team during the season and an assistant coach is reportedly suing the team for wrongful dismissal. The league is working with the club on a new business plan. "Weve set out some conditions of approval of that business plan of which we want to see some changes immediately," Robson said. "One is certainly improving the financial performance of the franchise and probably most important is making sure the on-ice performance of the team is going in the right direction. "Theres not a team thats not going to be impacted by missing the playoffs the number of seasons that they have and they find themselves in a bit of a hole, but with the proper structure moving forward, they can be successful. "Its a great hockey community, a great facility and we just need the right leadership to get in place to get that job done." ' ' '
