CALGARY, Alberta (AP) Daniel Winnik and Ryan Getzlaf each scored two goals as the Anaheim Ducks edged the Calgary Flames 5-4 on Monday night.

Saku Koivu had the other goal for Anaheim, which opened the season with two road wins and will enjoy a rare three-day rest in this year's compressed schedule before hosting Vancouver in its home opener Friday.

Signed as a free agent last summer, Winnik has found instant chemistry on a line with Koivu and Andrew Cogliano. All three were in on Winnik's go-ahead goal at 4:02 of the third period, which broke a 3-3 tie.

Curtis Glencross had two goals, and Lee Stempniak and Alex Tanguay also scored for Calgary, which opened with consecutive home losses.
