Jonas Hiller, who spent his first seven NHL seasons with Anaheim before signing with Calgary in July, stopped 29 shots in his return.
The Flames, coming off a 4-1 homestand that included shootout wins over the Ducks and New Jersey, spoiled Andersen's shutout bid with 8:58 remaining when T. J. Brodie beat him with a screened slap shot.
Another potential goal by Johnny Gaudreau with 3:11 remaining was overturned by video replay after he was ruled to have kicked the puck in during a delayed penalty.
The Ducks took a 1-0 lead 4:37 in when Beleskey's intended centering pass for Perry caromed off the right skate of defenseman Kris Russell and past Hiller's left skate.
Almost 3 minutes later, Hiller got a break when Beleskey's one-timer from the slot hit the left post.
Beleskey was hit in the skate by Francois Beauchemin's slap shot, and kicked the puck to Perry.
Beauchemin didn't play in the third period after blocking a slap shot by Brodie with about 3 minutes left in the second.

The senior forward had the go-ahead basket and game-saving block in the final minute to lift No. 12 Villanova over No. 19 Michigan 60-55 in the Legends Classic championship game Tuesday night.
Pinkston put the Wildcats (5-0) up 56-55 with a spin for separation and a one-handed shot with 13.4 seconds left.
LeVert put the Wolverines up 55-54 and flexed his muscles in the direction of Villanova players.
The Wolverines, who missed 12 straight shots at one point, suddenly could not miss.
After his team was down 38-31 only 2 minutes earlier, Spike Albrecht hit a go-ahead 3 for a one-point lead.
"When we were running our offense, running our sets, doing good cuts, setting good screens, it was working," LeVert said.
Ennis had the defensive play of Villanova's young season with a block late in the first half.
Ennis landed on his tailbone after his epic elevation sent 'Nova fans into a frenzy.
Michigan and Villanova, two of the most decorated programs in college basketball, played each other for the first time since the 1985 NCAA tournament.
Back near the top of the rankings, and fresh from his long-awaited Davis Cup triumph with Switzerland, Roger Federer is getting ready for the International Premier Tennis League that gets under way on Friday.
Joining Federer in the franchise-based, short-format competition will be the top-ranked players in men's and women's tennis, with Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams also signed up to play.
Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras are among the retired greats who'll feature in the tournament that will be contested by four teams — the Manila Mavericks, Singapore Slammers, Indian Aces and United Arab Emirates Royals.
The format includes men's and women's singles, men's doubles, mixed doubles and legends singles matches.
Williams, who won the season-ending WTA title in Singapore last month, said I'm looking forward to coming back to Singapore and playing for the Singapore Slammers.
The 33-year-old Federer helped Switzerland clinch its first Davis Cup title last weekend in France, and the 17-time major winner will start his 2015 at the Brisbane International on Jan.
