Game Over

STEVE MACFARLANE -- Calgary Sun

, Last Updated: 9:57 AM ET

EDMONTON -- SUN THREE STARS

1. Petr Sykora, Oilers -- Potted both Oilers goals.

2. Dwayne Roloson, Oilers -- Didn't face a lot of rubber but made a couple of huge saves.

3. Miikka Kiprusoff, Flames -- Was there when he needed to make a rare difficult save to keep his team close until the end.

UNSUNG HERO

Raffi Torres was one of the most physical Oilers and drew a penalty to give his team a key powerplay.

WHY THE FLAMES lost

They didn't attack the Oilers early and couldn't snare that all-important second goal on the powerplay, despite six chances.

HUGE HIT

Toby Peterson isn't the biggest or heaviest Oiler but he threw a huge check on Flames blueliner Andrei Zyuzin at centre ice late in the first period.

FIGHT CARD

None.

scratches

CALGARY -- D Mark Giordano (healthy), C Stephane Yelle (leg/ankle, IR).

BURNING QUESTION

Were the Flames conserving a little energy for tonight's game against the 'Hawks?

WHAT IT MEANS

Calgary's six-game winning streak comes to an end and the Edmonton Oilers take a five-point lead over their divisional rival.

NOTABLES

D Andrei Zyuzin took a Marc-Andre Bergeron shot off the foot in the second period and didn't return. He was walking around the ice level before the third period began ... F Jarome Iginla's point streak ended at seven games and F Alex Tanguay's was snuffed out at four.
