Calgary wins, 4-0
The Flames comntinued red-hot, despite the frigid temperatures at McMahon Stadium.

Calgary defeated Montreal, 4-0, in the 2011 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic, thanks to two goals by a dominant Rene Bourque and a 39-save performance by goalie Miikka Kiprusoff.

The game set several records, including most shots by a player (Bourque, 11), saves by a goalie (39, Kiprusoff), and shots by a team in a period (21,Montreal), which broke the record set just a period earlier by Calgary.

With the victory, Calgary improved to 11-1-2 in its past 14 games. As a result of the victory, Calgary jumped back into the playoff picture in the Western Conference, going from ninth place to sixth in the bottleneck that is the West heading down the stretch.
