Flames take control

Curtis Glencross almost single-handedly made Calgary's shorthanded goal at 12:44 of the period happen to make it 2-0.

Glencross and Brendan Morrison somehow engineered a 2-on-1 break while Jay Bouwmeester was in the penalty box for tripping Max Pacioretty. Morrison passed to Glencross, but a snap shot from Glencross went wide. Glencross, though, chased down the shot behind the net and skated it into the corner. As he was checked, he slid a backhander to Anton Babchuk, who fired a one-timer past Carey Price.

Then, 122 seconds later, Rene Bourque made it 3-0 with his second goal of the night. Somehow, Bourque was able to corral a bouncing pass from Cory Sarich and get it to settle before he made a sweet deke to force Price commit before tucking the puck in the net.

Bourque is the fifth player to score two goals in an NHL outdoor game. Yanic Perreault, Richard Zednik, Jiri Hudler and Eric Fehr are the other players to turn that trick. Bourque's second goal came on his eighth shot on the night.

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.
