Bourque is back. After missing the previous two games because of what is now called a concussion, Bourque scored in overtime to make Miikka Kiprusoff’s night complete. Kipper stopped 34 shots for his first shutout of the season.
Other news to note, T.J. Brodie was sent to the AHL Abbotsford Heat – which I don’t think is much of a surprise to anyone.
Flames claimed another defenseman – Brendan Mikkelson – off waivers from the Anaheim Ducks. Because of the injury to Pardy, the Flames were left with only 8 defensemen, which is clearly not enough according to the Sutter brain trust. Mikkelson was drafted 31st overall by the Ducks in 2005.
