NHL: Calgary 3, Vancouver 2

April 6, 2012 at 12:27 AM   |   Comments

CALGARY, Alberta, April 6 (UPI) -- Mike Cammalleri scored the first and last of three consecutive third-period goals for Calgary Thursday that brought the Flames a 3-2 win over Vancouver.

Calgary won for just the second time in 10 games, getting a 32-save effort from Miikka Kiprusoff.

Vancouver had a 1-0 lead heading into the final period. Cammalleri's two goals, along with one from Curtis Glencross, handed the Canucks a disappointing setback -- costing Vancouver a chance to move in front of the New York Rangers for the best record in the NHL.

The Canucks had won seven in a row.

New York has the tiebreak advantage over Vancouver and thus needs just one point out of its final game Saturday to claim the Presidents' Trophy.

Vancouver also has a two-point lead over St. Louis for the best mark in the Western Conference.

Cory Schneider stopped 25 shots for Vancouver.
