NHL Game Summary - Edmonton at Calgary
(Saturday, October 15th)
Final Score: Calgary 3, Edmonton 0
Calgary, AB (Sports Network) - Miikka Kiprusoff stopped all 33 shots he faced for his first shutout of the season, as Calgary beat Edmonton, 3-0, at the Pengrowth Saddledome.
Kiprusoff turned aside nine shots in the first period, 15 in the second and nine more in the third to post his eighth career shutout.
Daymond Langkow, Jarome Iginla and Rhett Warrener all scored for the Flames, who put an end to a three-game losing streak.
Jussi Markkanen was solid in defeat as he made 25 saves for the Oilers, who have lost three consecutive games since opening with three straight wins to begin the season.
Calgary took a 1-0 lead on Langkow's power-play goal midway through the first period. Steven Reinprecht fired a slap shot from the high slot that Markkanen saved. However the netminder could not corral the rebound and Langkow banged home the loose puck 9:53 into the frame.
"It was nice to get that first power-play goal by Langkow, it gave us a nice boost," said Iginla.
Iginla's unassisted goal nearly six minutes later made it 2-0 and the score stayed that way until the final minutes as Kiprusoff kept Edmonton off the scoreboard.
The Oilers had three power-play chances in the third period, including one with 1 1/2 minutes left, but could not beat the Finnish netminder.
Warrener's empty-net goal with 1:02 left capped the scoring.
The Flames were 1-for-7 on the power play, while Edmonton did not convert on any of its eight chances with the extra skater...Calgary scored in the first period for the first time this year...The Oilers are 0-3-1 in their last four trips to Calgary.
