Rickard Rakell had two goals and an assist in Friday’s 5-1 win over Arizona as Anaheim played without captain Ryan Getzlaf and fellow forward Nick Ritchie, who practiced Saturday and could return against Calgary.

The Flames had seemed to get things going with a 4-2-1 stretch, but have dropped three of four since after getting blanked 5-0 at Los Angeles on Saturday. Calgary has not received enough production out of young stars Sean Monahan (four points) and Johnny Gaudreau (two goals), who own a combined minus-21 rating.

Calgary coach Glen Gulutzan decided shuffle his top lines Saturday, putting Gaudreau with center Sam Bennett and Troy Brouwer while Monahan skated between Michael Ferland and Alex Chiasson.

Corey Perry leads the team with 10 points and shares the top spot in goals with defenseman Cam Fowler (four) while goalie John Gibson has yielded one or fewer tallies in four of his last six contests.

The Flames are 0-for-13 with the man advantage over the last five games and have given up six power-play goals in the past six contests.
