Flames try to continue surge against Senators

Ottawa (12-15-5) at Calgary (19-11-4) 10:00 p.m. EST

CALGARY, Alberta (Ticker) — The Calgary Flames are hoping the
Christmas break does not break their momentum.

The Flames look to earn points for the sixth straight game on
Saturday when they visit the Ottawa Senators.

Calgary has posted a 3-0-3 record in its last six contests,
including a 4-3 victory against the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday.

Michael Cammalleri and Mark Giordano each recorded a goal and an
assist against the Ducks, helping the Flames avoid their first
four-game losing streak at home since November 14-21, 2002.

Captain Jarome Iginla and Craig Conroy each had two assists in
support of Miikka Kiprusoff, who turned aside 30 shots for
Calgary, which has endured two regulation losses in 10 games
during December.

The Senators have been on the opposite end of the spectrum,
posting a 1-3-0 record in their last four games.

Ottawa, which sits in last place in the Northeast Division, has
won only four times in 10 games (4-5-1) this month.
