CHICAGO (Ticker) — The Calgary Flames look to match their
season high with a sixth straight win when they visit the
Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday.
Calgary has won five straight games and is 7-0-1 in its last
eight after defeating Nashville, 3-2, on Saturday.
Todd Bertuzzi scored the game-winner with 24 seconds remaining
and Miikka Kiprusoff made 24 saves to record his fifth straight
victory in the win. Defenseman Dion Phaneuf also notched his
first point in nine contests with an assist.
Chicago was streaking before running into the Detroit Red Wings
this past week.
The Blackhawks enjoyed a nine-game winning streak before losing
4-0 to the Red Wings on Tuesday and dropping a 6-4 contest in
the Winter Classic at Wrigley Field on Thursday. Chicago
outscored the opposition, 40-14, during its torrid stretch.
Martin Havlat had a goal and two assists in Thursday’s setback,
which snapped a five-game “home” winning streak. The Blackhawks
have not lost at the United Center since November 16.
The Blackhawks have won both meetings this season, including a
3-2 overtime triumph on December 19.
