(Sports Network) - The Anaheim Ducks will try to bounce back from a rare loss, as they welcome the Calgary Flames to the Honda Center this evening.

The Ducks, who lead the NHL with 56 points and a 25-4-6 record, were handed a 4-3 setback by the division rival San Jose Sharks on Saturday. Joe Thornton was credited with the go-ahead goal with 2:13 remaining for the Sharks.

Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry each had a goal and an assist for the Ducks, who had a five-game winning streak broken.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped 25 saves for Anaheim, which fell to 12-2-2 on the road this season.

Saturday's game ended a five-game swing for the Ducks, while tonight's contest is the first of two straight at the Honda Center. Anaheim is 13-2-4 on its home ice this season.

The Flames, meanwhile, are in the midst of a six-game road trip. They played the second portion of the trek Saturday night in Phoenix and earned a 6-3 victory.

Jarome Iginla tallied two goals and two assists to help Calgary rebound from Thursday's divisional loss in Vancouver. Iginla has 17 points in his last eight games, registering nine goals and eight assists during that stretch.
