This was Leland Irving’s first start, and he looked shaky in the first period and had problems controlling rebounds early. But he settled down and made his share of nice saves.
Bourque gave Calgary a 2-1 lead at 3:55 of the third with a power-play goal. With Kris Versteeg in the penalty box for slashing, Bourque took a pass from Jokinen to the left of Theodore and beat him with a close-in shot that went between his body and left arm. However Calgary would go on to blow this lead, to continue the winlessness on the this road trip.
