Flames burn Boston, 3-0
CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -- Miikka Kiprusoff stopped 26 shots in his fifth shutout of the season and the Calgary Flames beat the Boston Bruins 3-0 on Saturday night.

Rookie defenseman Dion Phaneuf, Tony Amonte and Stephane Yelle scored for the Flames, who played for the first time in since defeating Ottawa 2-1 a week earlier.

The Flames jumped out to a 3-0 lead with goals on three of their first four shots.

With Jarome Iginla screening Boston goalie Andrew Raycroft, Phaneuf snapped a point shot into the top corner at 3:05 of the first period. Just 51 seconds later, Matthew Lombardi centered the puck from behind the net out to Amonte, who quickly one-timed a shot past Raycroft.

Exactly one minute later, Yelle intercepted the puck from Patrice Bergeron at the Calgary blue line during a Boston power play. Yelle then skated the length of the ice and wristed a shot into the top corner for his first goal since the opening game of the season, a stretch of 30 games.

Kiprusoff did his part to keep Boston off the scoresheet in the opening period with a nice pad save off of a close-in shot by Bruins forward Marco Sturm. Later in the period, with Boston enjoying a two-man advantage, Kiprusoff made a highlight-reel glove save on a shot by defenseman Brian Leetch.

During the same power play, Yelle blocked a shot and left the game with an ankle injury.

The Flames protected their 3-0 lead through two periods despite a pair of great scoring opportunities by Boston's P.J. Axelsson, who was denied on a breakaway by Kiprusoff before hitting the post with another shot later in the period.

In the third, the Flames played stifling defense and only allowed Boston to record eight shots.

Raycroft finished with 26 saves as the 2003-04 NHL rookie of the year fell to 5-14-2.
