FLAMES 3 DUCKS 0

SUN THREE STARS

1. Miikka Kiprusoff, Flames -- Now five shutouts away from setting franchise mark.

2. Tony Amonte, Flames -- Third goal in his last two games was a biggie.

3. Ryan Getzlaf, Ducks -- Most noticeable Quacker on the ice.

UNSUNG HERO

Roman Hamrlik, Flames -- Another solid game from the veteran, who led the team in ice time again.

WHY THE FLAMES WON

Their best start of the season. Two goals in 19 seconds early and they held off the Ducks' attack.

BIG SAVE

Andrew Ference sprawled out in the crease to make a leg save on Teemu Selanne with the Ducks pressing for a powerplay goal in the third.

FIGHT CARD

Brandon Prust and Shawn Thornton had a go early in the first. Dustin Penner and Dion Phaneuf had a short scrap after Penner ran Miikka Kiprusoff late in the period.

BURNING QUESTION

Are we in the midst of another November to remember for the Flames?

WHAT IT MEANS

One step closer to a .500 record and a potential playoff spot in the Western Conference standings.

NOTABLE

D Dion Phaneuf, D Robyn Regehr, F Jarome Iginla and G Miikka Kiprusoff all made the NHL All-Star fan ballot released yesterday.
