In a crucial Game 4 for both sides, the Calgary Flames played a pretty strong first ten minutes and got a two-goal lead. However, the veteran Anaheim Ducks steadied themselves, and between some veteran poise from the Ducks and some errors by the team's youngsters led to a narrow 4-2 Ducks win.
The loss puts the Flames at a 3-1 disadvantage in the series, which continues with its fifth game on Sunday night in Anaheim. The Ducks can advance to the Western Conference Final with a win at home.

The Calgary Flames have made a single line-up change from Game 3 for tonight's Game 4, but it's a doozy.
Per the NHL's official game sheet for the game, the team has inserted Lance Bouma and Micheal Ferland into the line-up in place of Markus Granlund and Josh Jooris. It's Bouma's first game since April 7, when he was injured blocking a shot against the Arizona Coyotes, and Ferland's first since leaving Game 1 against Anaheim with an upper body injury.
