NHL Game Summary - Calgary at Detroit
(Friday, November 27th)
Final Score: Calgary 3, Detroit 0
Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - Miikka Kiprusoff's 40 saves led to his second shutout of the season as Calgary kept Detroit off the scoreboard once again in a 3-0 victory at Joe Louis Arena.
Jamie Lundmark, Nigel Dawes and Olli Jokinen scored for the Flames, who have won three of four.
Chris Osgood made only 14 stops for the Red Wings, who were blanked at home in their previous game on Wednesday against Atlanta.
Detroit hadn't suffered back-to-back home shutout defeats since Boston and Montreal blanked the Wings at their former home, the Olympia, on March 23 and 27, 1977.
Calgary went up 1-0 on the game's first shift as Lundmark snapped a shot past Osgood for his first goal of the season 28 seconds in.
Detroit had a potential tying goal by Dan Cleary waved off with 5:21 to play on incidental contact with Kiprusoff, and the Flames went up 2-0 on Dawes' backhander off a scramble in front with 1:31 left in the first.
Following a scoreless second period which saw Kiprusoff stonewall the Wings with 17 saves, Jokinen boosted Calgary's edge to 3-0 just 25 seconds into the third.
Kiprusoff then stopped Pavel Datsyuk and Todd Bertuzzi with sliding saves on quality chances in close, and finished the final 20 minutes with just eight stops on a tired Detroit club to wrap up the contest.
Kiprusoff registered his 32nd career whitewash...Calgary has won three of the last four meetings...Each team has won on the other's home ice in two matchups this year...The Wings hadn't been shutout in consecutive games since December 15-17, 2001 at Vancouver and home against Chicago...Flames captain Jarome Iginla collected a pair of assists.
