Game Over

DAN TOTH -- Calgary Sun

, Last Updated: 1:47 PM ET


 SUN THREE STARS:

 1. Oleg Saprykin, Flames: Young winger scored the overtime winner.

 2. Nikolai Khabibulin, Lightning: Bolts netminder kept his club in the game, supplying several tremendous saves.

 3. Martin Gelinas, Flames: Gritty veteran scored opening goal while enduring several punishing hits and cross-checks.

 TURNING POINT:

 With the Flames pressing in the Bolts' zone, Marcus Nilson made a cross-ice feed to Jarome Iginla, who moved into the slot and fired a hard shot on net. Parked on the doorstep was Oleg Saprykin who picked up the rebound and shovelled it between Nikolai Khabibulin's legs.

 SAVE OF THE GAME:

 Just five minutes in, Jarome Iginla, looking for the Flames' second goal, took a quick pass in the slot from Chris Simon and ripped a snapshot at the open side of the Bolts net. But Lightning goalie Nikolai Khabibulin flicked out his right pad, kicking the puck harmlessly into the corner while Iginla headed for the bench shaking his head. Khabibulin also robbed Iginla with a glove save in the second.

 HIT OF THE GAME:

 Toni Lydman jumped right back into the physical play in his first contest back from a concussion, delivering a hip check on Bolts defenceman Cory Sarich in the first period along the sideboards just outside the Lightning blueline.

 UNSUNG HERO:

 Flames winger Shean Donovan used his speed to create some dangerous scoring chances, although he left the game late in the second period with an apparent right knee injury.

 ROSTER MOVES:

 The Flames added defenceman Toni Lydman, who suffered a concussion in Game 3 of the Vancouver series, while rearguard Mike Commodore was scratched. Forward Ville Nieminen sat out a one-game suspension, while winger Dave Lowry was added.

 The Bolts scratched winger Cory Stillman and defenceman Brad Lukowich, while adding defenceman Pavel Kubina, who suffered a lower-body injury in Game 3 and sat out Game 4. Winger Ruslan Fedotenko, who suffered a facial injury in Game 3, also returned to the lineup.

 NOTABLES:

 Lightning players refused to be interviewed on TV between periods ... About 30 fans wearing red Flames sweaters crowded behind the Calgary bench during warmups, receiving handshakes and thumbs-up from team president Ken King ... In what has become a game of cat-and-mouse, Bolts' Chris Dingman spun around his team's net facing the end-boards after warmups, although Flames' Chris Simon and Oleg Saprykin both fired pucks at it anyway.
