ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – Joffrey Lupul, Keith Carney and Teemu Selanne scored on power plays, Andy McDonald extended his goal streak to three games, and the Anaheim Mighty Ducks beat the Calgary Flames 4-1 Wednesday night.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 25 saves after missing three games because of a groin strain. He is 7-6 with two ties against the Flames, who traded him to the Ducks in June 2000.

Jarome Iginla trimmed Anaheim’s lead to 2-1 with a power-play goal 5:04 into the third period. Iginla, who had only two goals in his first 10 games, nearly tied it 21/2 minutes later when his one-timer from the top of the left circle hit the right post.

Carney converted a rebound with 2:01 remaining, his first goal in 40 career games against Calgary, to make it 3-1. Selanne capped the scoring with five seconds left.

Anaheim killed off Calgary’s first three power plays, then took a 1-0 lead the first time the Ducks had a man advantage. Selanne passed the puck out from behind the net and Lupul one-timed it past goalie Miikka Kiprusoff’s stick with 1:19 left in the first period.

Lupul’s fifth goal of the season ended a stretch in which the Flames had killed off 34 of 36 short-handed situations over a six-game span. In their first five games, they surrendered 13 power-play goals in 31 chances.

The Ducks, who failed to score in the second period of their previous five games, made it 2-0 at 15:55 of the second when McDonald banked the puck into the net off Kiprusoff’s leg from the right of the crease.

Anaheim’s Sergei Fedorov missed his seventh straight game because of a groin strain. Defenseman Sandis Ozolinsh was scratched because of a fractured rib, and rookie Ryan Getzlaf sat out his second game because of strained left shoulder.

Notes: Ducks coach Randy Carlyle was fined an undisclosed amount by the NHL for remarks about the officiating in a 3-2 loss at Detroit last Friday. … Ozolinsh was injured in Sunday’s win over Phoenix, but played through it in Tuesday’s 2-1 loss at Los Angeles and logged 16 minutes and 29 seconds in 25 shifts against the Kings. … The Flames, coming off a 3-2 victory against the Kings, have yet to win consecutive games this season. They have scored only three first-period goals in their first 11 games. … The Ducks have allowed at least one power-play goal in each of their first 10 games, 18 total. They came in with an league-worst 75 percent efficiency on the penalty kill.
