The Flames had 21 shots in the first period of this game, I’m not sure I can remember a 20+ shot period out of this team. The trouble is, they were tied or losing for all of the period. After scoring a couple in the second (on seven shots) the Flames held on with 14 shots in the remaining 40 minutes. The Avs had 20 shots in the third.
The highlights had to be Roman Horak’s first NHL goal, Lee Stempniak’s first goal as a Flame and the Rene Bourque automatic goal, because he had a breakaway with an empty net. And Miikka Kiprusoff celebrated his 35th birthday by ending Colorado’s perfect start on the road.
