THREE STARS

1. Jamie Lundmark, Flames -- A real goal-scorer's goal for winger who spent most of the season in the AHL.

2. Marty Turco, Stars -- Almost enough saves to score yet another win over Flames.

3. Eric Nystrom, Flames -- Big goal and a key shot block while shorthanded that may have gone unseen.

DEFENCE: B+

GOALTENDING: B+

POWERPLAY: D

PENALTY KILL: A

UNSUNG HERO

Flames C/LW Dustin Boyd made a couple of nifty plays that led to a couple of goals. He had a fairly good road trip, and is finding more and more offensive confidence.

GOAL OF THE GAME

C/LW Dustin Boyd barely kept the puck in the offensive zone before springing linemate Eric Nystrom on a breakaway, which he converted to make it a 2-1 game.

SAVE OF THE GAME

During a second-period Stars powerplay, G Miikka Kiprusoff made a couple of dandy stops, including a key glove save.

SCRATCHES

CALGARY -- LW Todd Bertuzzi (knee), D Mark Giordano (shoulder), LW Rene Bourque (ankle), C Wayne Primeau (broken foot) and D Rhett Warrener (shoulder).

DALLAS -- C Mike Modano (lower-body), LW Steve Begin (upper-body), LW Brenden Morrow (knee), D Sergei Zubov (hip), C Brad Richards (wrist), C Toby Petersen (foot), RW Krystofer Barch and D Andrew Hutchinson.

UP NEXT

FRIDAY: St. Louis Blues at Calgary Flames, 7 p.m., Sportsnet, FAN960.

NOTABLES

The Flames made a formal application yesterday to relocate their AHL farm team from Quad Cities to Abbotsford, B.C. The AHL will have to approve the move, which would see the team move into a soon-to-be-completed 7,000-seat arena in the Fraser Valley city. To help the cause of what may be a tough sell seeing as the closest AHL city is Winnipeg, the team has launched a website (www.fraservalleyahl.com) so fans can show their interest for tickets ... Prior to puck drop, the Flames presented RW Jarome Iginla with a silver stick for becoming the franchise's all-time point scorer. On March 1, against Tampa Bay, he recorded his 831st point. Iginla also reached the 400-goal mark that game.

SUMMARY

FLAMES 2 STARS 1

Dallas 4 12 3--19

Calgary 10 11 10--31
