|ANAHEIM: ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Although Corey Perry has won a Stanley Cup, an MVP award and an NHL goal-scoring title in his short career, the Anaheim Ducks' star forward remains hungry for more hardware.|
Another NHL title with the Ducks is his first choice.
After a tumultuous season of impressive highs and ugly lows, the Ducks return with largely the same core in search of improvement on last spring's first-round playoff ouster.
Despite their oustery by the Nashville Predators, the Ducks ended last season with a wealth of reasons for optimism. Anaheim surged back from a mediocre start with a fantastic finish featuring multiple heart-stopping victories in the regular season, winning 15 of its final 20 games.
|CALGARY: CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - The Calgary Flames were experienced and expensive the past two seasons.|
And it didn't work. An older team at the top end of the salary cap missed the playoffs both years.
Calgary got younger and gained space under the cap in Jay Feaster's first offseason as general manager. The former Tampa Bay Lighting GM had the interim tag removed from his title in May.
Feaster took over managing duties midway through last season, when Darryl Sutter was asked to resign and Calgary had a 16-18-3 record.
Calgary went on a 25-11-9 run to finish the year, falling three points short of a playoff berth in a tight Western Conference race.
A 41-29-12 record wasn't enough to return to the postseason, but the way the Flames finished makes them optimistic.

*Ducks-Flames Preview* ======================
By NOEY KUPCHAN STATS Writer
Anaheim (34-35-12) at Calgary (36-29-16), 4:00 p.m. EDT
The Calgary Flames returned home to many disappointed fans in their last game but left them with something to cheer.
A repeat performance in their season finale could prove difficult if their recent efforts against the Anaheim Ducks are any indication.
The Flames try to avoid a seventh loss in eight meetings with the visiting Ducks as both teams close their schedules Saturday.
Calgary (36-29-16) closed March with a 1-4-4 skid and was eliminated from playoff contention with last Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss at Vancouver. The Flames had four days off to dwell on that downfall before facing the Canucks again Thursday with nothing to play for, but they came away with a thrilling 3-2 win.
Calgary was shut out for the first two periods before scoring three in the third, preventing Vancouver from taking sole possession of the lead in the race for the Presidents' Trophy.
"I know we let our fans down this year but we wanted to come out and show 'em we're not packing it in, we want to play with pride," right winger Tom Kostopoulos said. "We're all happy to be on this team and playing for Calgary so we wanted to play a good solid game."
Michael Cammalleri scored his 19th and 20th goals while Curtis Glencross added his 26th of the season, ending an 11-game drought.
"Regardless of the lack of implications in the standings, it's like anything that a competitive person does whether you're playing a ping pong game or anything else," Cammalleri said. "It's just you like to win."
The Flames haven't experienced many wins versus the Ducks (34-35-12) of late, going 1-2-4 over the last seven matchups. Their only victory during that stretch was this season's lone meeting in Calgary, 1-0 in overtime Jan. 12 behind 23 saves from Miikka Kiprusoff.
Kiprusoff stopped 32 shots Thursday, improving to 6-2-1 over his last nine starts at Scotiabank Saddledome.
"He's held us in a lot of game games, he's won us a lot of games. The fans of Calgary are lucky to see him play every night," Kostopoulos said of Kiprusoff, who is 10-2-1 with three shutouts and a 1.76 goals-against average in 13 home starts versus the Ducks.
Anaheim snapped a three-game losing streak with Thursday's 3-2 overtime win at Edmonton. Andrew Cogliano and Bobby Ryan scored in the second period before Ryan Getzlaf tallied the game-winner.
"It was actually a pretty bad game for us," said Cogliano, who had gone pointless over his previous 14 contests. "The first period, we were badly outshot (11-2). It was ugly, but we found a way to win. That's good because you want to finish the year off well and have something to look forward to next year."
Jonas Hiller got the day off Thursday but is expected to make his 73rd start - he's currently tied with Nashville's Pekka Rinne for most in the league. Hiller has lost his last six away from home, allowing 18 goals, and is 0-2-1 with a 2.36 GAA lifetime in Calgary.
Flames captain Jarome Iginla, held to four points in his last 10 games, has seven goals and eight assists in 11 matchups with the Ducks over the past three seasons.
Anaheim's Teemu Selanne is uncertain about returning for a 20th NHL season in 2012-13 and could be playing in his last game. With 1,406 career points, the 41-year-old star is three away from tying Hall of Famer Dale Hawerchuk for 18th place all-time.
