Video: The Flames had a disastrous breakdown on this Ducks goal

Rickard Rackell beat Brian Elliott off a rebound in the second period to tie Game 1 at 2-2 between the Ducks and Flames.

The struggle in Anaheim continues for the Calgary Flames -- at least for now.

Leading in the second period of Game 1 of their series versus the Ducks, the Flames were guilty of getting caught on a brutal line change, leading to a quick Kevin Bieksa stretch pass to Ryan Getzlaf for a two-on-oh rush into the Calgary zone.

That was trouble.

Getzlaf didn’t finish the play off, but Rickard Rakell did, burying the rebound after Brian Elliott made the initial save. Tie game.

The Flames, so far, have also run into penalty trouble. The Ducks have had five power plays through two periods, scoring twice to take a 3-2 lead into the third period. Calgary has had only two power plays.
