The Calgary Flames will take on the Anaheim Ducks for Game 4 of their Western Conference Quarterfinal Series at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary tonight. Puck drop will go at 8:00 PM MT.

The Flames went 1-4-0 against the Ducks this season, but that one victory was an 8-3 blowout in which the Flames scored 5 goals in six minutes. The two teams met also in the 2015 Western Conference Semifinals, where the Ducks won in five games.

Anaheim took the third game of the series 5-4 in overtime on Monday. The Flames got goals from Sean Monahan, Kris Versteeg, Michael Stone, and Sam Bennett in the game. With the loss, Calgary will be looking to stave off elimination tonight.

Brian Elliott will get the start for the Flames tonight, while John Gibson will get the nod for Anaheim. Watch them in tonight’s game on CBC or Sportsnet 960 The Fan.
