WHY FLAMES WON

Because of Miikka Kiprusoff. The standout goalie had his best performance of the season and was even perfect in the shootout.

BIG SAVE

Early in the first period, Flames goalie Miikka Kiprusoff showed he was going to come up with a big game when he robbed Wes Walz on a point-blank chance.

BIG GOAL

Alex Tanguay's goal to start the shootout was huge for a Flames team that hadn't generated any offence.

NOTABLES

Miikka Kiprusoff collected his first shutout in 26 games and moved to top spot on the franchise's all-time list with his 21st as a Flame.
