Game Over

STEVE MACFARLANE -- Sun Media

, Last Updated: 10:08 AM ET

SUN THREE STARS:

1. Rick Nash, Blue Jackets -- Had a solid game and his hustle to a loose puck led to the tying goal.

2. Jamie McLennan, Flames -- The guy's got the toughest job in hockey but came through with a solid game.

3. Fredrik Norrena, Blue Jackets -- A couple of big saves in the third gave his team the opportunity to claw back.

UNSUNG HERO:

Dan Fritsche centred the top line between Rick Nash and David Vyborny and set them up for success with a huge edge in the faceoff circle.

WHY FLAMES LOST:

The Blue Jackets' top six forwards were better than the Flames' top six.

BIG SAVE:

Jamie McLennan did his best Miikka Kiprusoff impression late in the second period to stone Rick Nash. Anticipating a one-timer, McLennan slid across in time to keep Nash's quick deflection from finding twine.

HARDEST HIT:

Dion Phaneuf became public enemy No. 1 after he smashed Rick Nash into the boards with a hard shoulder.

BURNING QUESTION:

Is there any way to pack the Saddledome into the Flames' suitcases for road trips?

WHAT IT MEANS:

The Flames' disastrous road record falls to 7-13-6.

NOTABLE:

Kristian Huselius extended his league-best point streak to a whopping 14 games, tops in the league this season.
