GOAL OF THE GAME:

Tracey Kelusky -- struggling to light the lamp heading into last night's tilt -- used a low pick to come out from the corner and circle before firing a textbook Kelusky backhand shot top corner, short side.

SAVE THE GAME:

Rush 'tender Pat Campbell first stoned Tracey Kelusky, who was on the doorstep at the top of the crease, late in the second quarter and then made a spectacular stick stop on Kevin Dostie who had grabbed Kelusky's rebound and had a gapping cage.

UNSUNG HERO:

Big defender Craig Gelsvik -- playing his second game of the season -- was solid in Calgary's end and hammered on Rush forwards all night.

- - -

FIGHT CARD:

Rush F Brad Dairon and Riggers F Kevin Dostie had a dustup in the fourth quarter.

- - -

NOTABLES:

Calgary's scratches last night were D Rob Kirkby (healthy), F Matt Green (healthy), D Andy Ogilvie (personal commitments), Travis Gillespie (healthy) and Callum Crawford (healthy). Edmonton had five healthy scratches: F Kyle McEwen, D Teddy Jenner, D Buck Stobart, F Colin Sherbanuk and F Jordan Cornfield ... Last night's tilt was Calgary's first of three straight on the road. Next Friday they travel to Phoenix to take on the Arizona Sting and then head north to Portland Saturday to face the expansion Lumberjax.
