Calgary (2-2-1) at Montreal (2-0-2) 7:30 pm EDT
MONTREAL (Ticker) -- If the Calgary Flames want to win some more
hockey games, it would behoove them to get their dormant power
play in gear.
Calgary tries to get the attack with the extra skater going when
it takes on the Montreal Canadiens in the third game of a
four-game eastern trip.
The Flames, 1-for-34 on the power play, are ranked dead-last in
the NHL. They went 0-for-3 in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Toronto
Maple Leafs on Saturday.
Mark Giordano led the Flames with two goals while Daymond
Langkow and Matthew Lombardi each had a goal and an assist.
Montreal comes off a 3-2 shootout loss to the Ottawa Senators on
Saturday. Chris Higgins and Sergei Samsonov scored for the
Canadiens, who failed in their only power-play opportunity.
Canadiens netminder Cristobal Huet stopped 25 of 27 shots.
Three of Montreal's four games this season have been decided by
shootouts. The Canadiens are 1-2 in those shootouts.
