The Calgary Flames closed out their three-game homestand in fine fashion as they handed the Edmonton Oilers a 3-0 loss on Saturday night.Miikka Kiprusoff
made 21 saves and Jarome Iginla
scored two goals in the victory.
The first period was a scoreless affair with the shots sitting at 11-6 in Calgary's favour.
Kiprusoff made one his best saves this season with 2:21 remaining in the frame.
The netminder ended up kicking a dump-in right on to the stick of Ryan Jones and the left winger wasted no time in firing a shot on net. With Kiprusoff out of positon, it looked like Jones had an easy goal but the Finn scooped up the wrister with his glove.
The Flames broke the deadlock at 13:45 when Tom Kostopoulos
scored with a second left in a Sam Gagner minor.
He knocked a Derek Smith
shot from the blueline over Devan Dubnyk, potting his third goal of the year. Matt Stajan
's faceoff win earned him the second assist on the tally.
The Flames now have four power play goals in their last three games.
Iginla added the second goal of the night after a tic-tac-toe passing play between himself, Brendan Morrison and Jay Bouwmeester
. The captain's one-timer flew over Dubnyk's shoulder at 19:44 of the second period, pushing the winger to 10 goals on the year.
The winger scored his second of night at 19:40 of the final frame. Olli Jokinen
had the lone assist on the empty net goal.
