TURNING POINT:

BIG SAVE:

Mike Leclerc had the chance to make his Flames debut a huge success with the opportunity to give his team a 2-0 lead early in the second period. However, Alex Auld kicked out his left leg to make a clutch stop.

HARD HIT:

Vancouver disturber Jarkko Ruutu cut to the front of the net for a scoring chance and was met head-on by Tony Amonte and sent splattering to the ice.

UNSUNG HERO:

Vancouver defenceman Nolan Baumgartner blocked a couple of shots, causing him great pain.
