Preview | Box Score | Recap

CALGARY, Alberta (AP)—Dwayne Roloson and the Minnesota Wild smothered the low-scoring Calgary Flames.

Roloson made 34 saves—18 in the third period—for his 12th career shutout in the Wild’s 3-0 victory Friday night.

“I was able to see most of the shots and anything I wasn’t able to see our D was able to block so that was nice,” Roloson said.

The Flames, last in the NHL with 21 goals in 12 games, have been shut out three times in eight home games.

“I don’t care how well you play or how hard you play, the bottom line is you have to score in this league,” Calgary center Craig Conroy said. “You can play a hard game and not score, but who cares, big deal. The results have to be there.”

Pascal Dupuis scored his first goal of the season and added an assist to help Minnesota improve to 4-0-1 in its last five games and 6-6-2 overall. Marc Chouinard and Richard Park also scored.

Chouinard opened the scoring in the first period, Park added a power-play goal in second, and Dupuis scored in the third.

“This building is ours and it’s embarrassing to give up points in ourbuilding,” Calgary goalie Jamie McLennan said.


Calgary rookie C Matthew Lombardi and LW Oleg Saprykin were healthy scratches. … Calgary D Rhett Warrener missed his second game because of agroin injury.
