HAWKS LEAD SERIES 3-2

COMING IN

The Hawks came out with three quick goals and held on for a 5-1 victory Saturday in Chicago to push the Flames to the brink of elimination. The home team has yet to lose in this series, and Game 5 was the first time the team that scored first won the contest.

WHO'S HOT

FLAMES -- C Dustin Boyd scored his first NHL playoff goal in the 5-1 Game 5 loss. Boyd drove hard to the net to beat Hawks G Nikolai Khabibulin.

HAWKS -- D Brent Seabrook had a three-point outing in Game 5, including the opening goal on a powerplay. That slapshot tally was his first career playoff marker.

WHO'S NOT

FLAMES -- G Miikka Kiprusoff was pulled after giving up four goals in less than two periods of action. The first three Hawks goals came in a span of 1:49 midway through the opening frame.

HAWKS -- Hard to pick one coming off a 5-1 whipping of the Flames.

SPECIAL TEAMS

POWERPLAY -- Calgary 13.2% (2-15); Chicago: 22.7% (5-22).

PENALTY KILLING -- Calgary 77.3%; Chicago 86.7%.

INJURIES

CALGARY -- D Dion Phaneuf (undisclosed) is questionable. D Robyn Regehr (knee), D Rhett Warrener (shoulder), D Mark Giordano (shoulder) and LW Wayne Primeau (foot) are out.

CHICAGO -- D Matt Walker (finger) is questionable. D Brent Sopel (elbow) is out.

NOTABLE

Flames LW Andre Roy is eligible to return after missing Game 5 with a suspension. Roy was dinged for a pre-game incident during warmups of Game 4, when he contacted Hawks D Aaron Johnson.
