Despite the score, the Flames only had 21 shots in the game (Montreal had 36), which makes it their most shots this year. The Flames had just eight shots in the final 40 minutes of the game, and one shot in the third period. But I guess that is acceptable since they were sitting on a 4-1 lead at that point.
Curtis Glencross didn’t register a point, but was probably the second-most impactful player after Bourque. Oh, and Kipper didn’t play too badly either. Calgary scorers included Moss, Hagman and Bourque with 2. The Flames went 2/4 on the power play and 4/4 on the penalty kill. Babchuk was a healthy scratch. That’s your ‘game in a minute.’
Miikka Kiprusoff notched his 263rd win in a Calgary jersey in his 483rd game, passing Vernon despite playing 43 fewer games.
