WHY FLAMES LOST

They were stoned by a hot goalie a few times and couldn't find the handle on a tying tally.

UNSUNG HERO

Penguins C Tyler Kennedy scored his eighth of the season in the final minutes after a workmanlike outing.

HIT OF THE GAME

Penguins D Kris Letang was bringing the puck around his own net when Flames RW Jarome Iginla caught him in the tracks, sending him flying to the ground behind his own net.

SAVE OF THE GAME

With just under five minutes left, Jamie Lundmark took a pass in the slot, but Penguins G Marc-Andre Fleury slid over quickly to shut the door on the Flames winger.

FIGHT CARD

Off a draw in the second period, Flames RW Brian McGrattan and Penguins RW Eric Godard dropped the mitts for a long bout, in which Godard landed more of the heavy blows.
