LAST NIGHT IN CALGARY

CALGARY FLAMES 5

ST. LOUIS BLUES 4

SHOOTOUT

SUN THREE-STARS

1. Kristian Huselius, Flames -- His 30th and three assists.

2. Lee Stempniak, Blues -- A pair of tallies for the club's leading goal scorer.

3. David Moss, Flames -- Goal and assist for the rookie.

UNSUNG HERO

Blues G Jason Bacashihua kept his team in the game with all kinds of big stops.

WHY THE FLAMES WON

The powerplay that clicked once in five games came through with a pair of goals against a St. Louis team that didn't hand over the win.

SAVE OF THE GAME

Dangerous Blues centre Petr Cajanek was alone at the side of the when the rebound came his way and Miikka Kiprusoff seemingly out of position. But the Flames netminder sprawled and took away a sure goal with the inside of his blocker.

HIT OF THE GAME

A couple of minutes in, Flames D Rhett Warrener sent Jamal Mayers spiralling with a clean hip check.

FIGHT CARD

Warrener fought Mayers after the clean hip check and the forward went back after him. Both landed one great shot but give it to Mayers.

FLAMES SCRATCHES

CALGARY -- RW Eric Godard, D David Hale, D Mark Giordano, C Craig Conroy (undisclosed), RW Darren McCarty (hip), D Richie Regehr (concussion).

BURNING QUESTION

Does this team really want to climb the standings or would it prefer to limp to eighth spot in the conference?

WHAT IT MEANS

The Flames are now one point back of Minnesota for seventh in the Western Conference, with a game in hand, and three points behind Northwest Division leading Vancouver.

NOTABLE

Kristian Huselius became the second Flame this season to hit the 30-goal mark.
