NHL Game Summary - Edmonton at Calgary
Calgary, AB (Sports Network) - Dustin Boyd and Jarome Iginla each scored a pair of goals, as Calgary earned a much-needed 6-1 win over Edmonton in a battle of struggling Northwest division foes at the Saddledome.
The Flames were mired in a frustrating 0-6-3 slump coming into the game, their longest skid since an 11-game slide from December 14, 1985-January 7, 1986.
Miikka Kiprusoff recorded 27 saves, while Rene Bourque and Dion Phaneuf each had a goal for Calgary, who has swept its downtrodden in-province rival (6-0) for the first time ever.
The Oilers, 0-11-2 since a win over Toronto on December 30, are now one loss shy of matching the franchise's longest winless streak of 14 contests set between October 11-November 7, 1993.
Sam Gagner scored the lone goal for Edmonton, which received a 24-save effort from Devan Dubnyk in another crushing defeat.
Boyd's backhander in front opened the scoring just 3:45 into the contest, and Gagner tied the game on the power play at the 12:25 mark.
Calgary retook the lead just 55 seconds later on Bourque's tally, and the Flames essentially sealed the win with three second-period goals.
Boyd took advantage of an ugly Edmonton turnover deep in its own zone, netting his eight goal of the year 6:48 into the middle stanza. Phaneuf's one-timer made it 4-1 less than a minute later, and Iginla capped the scoring on a power-play goal with 4:47 remaining in the second and a rebound stuff midway through the third.
Kiprusoff flashed the glove on a streaking Andrew Cogliano five minutes into the third, one of his nine saves in the final stanza to polish off the win.
