Century club for Bourque
Sunday is certainly a day that Rene Bourque will not soon forget. He was the clear man of the match, scoring twice and firing off nine shots in the first 50 minutes of the game, but also the second of his two goals gave him 100 for his career.

Bourque reached 100 goals in 373 games.

The teams switched sides, as advertised, at the 10 minute mark of the third period with Montreal holding a 35-33 adavantage in shots. But, the wind did not hamper Calgary, who scored its fourth goal moments after the switch.

Jarome Iginla made a nifty little saucer pass, especially considering the ice conditions, across the Montreal crease and set up Alex tanguay for an easy tap-in.

Calgary goalie Miikka Kiprusoff has been almost as good as Bourque, stopping the first 35 shots he has faced. The record for an NHL outdoor game is 36, held by Buffalo's Ty Conklin, who made 36 saves in the inaugural NHL Winter Classic.

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
