NHL Game Summary - Calgary at Nashville



(Tuesday, January 5th)

Final Score: Calgary 3, Nashville 1

Nashville, TN (Sports Network) - Miikka Kiprusoff made 27 saves as Calgary clipped Nashville, 3-1, at Sommet Center.

David Moss, Olli Jokinen and Daymond Langkow scored for the Flames, who won their fifth straight game and moved one point ahead of idle Colorado for first place in the Northwest Division.

"We're getting a lot of chances, they just haven't been going in (lately)," Langkow said. "I think the main thing is that we're creating chances, and if we keep doing that, eventually we'll get rewarded."

Patric Hornqvist provided the lone offense for the Predators, who saw their three-game win streak snapped despite a 31-save effort from Dan Ellis.

"The last few games we've played against them, (they've) had a lot of point blank shots," Ellis said. "We matched up (differently), and they didn't get a lot of point blank shots (Tuesday). A lot of their chances were generated from getting the puck to the blue line, then getting traffic and getting rebounds."

Moss snapped a scoreless tie near the midway point of the second period, then Jokinen doubled the Calgary advantage with 18 seconds left in the frame.

Hornqvist finally put Nashville on the board with 6:15 left in regulation, but Langkow hit the empty net with 19 seconds to play to seal the victory.
