    Flames 4, CANUCKS 3 (OT)

    Bure the younger wins game for Flames

  • Summary

     VANCOUVER (CP) -- The Calgary Flames can thank Valeri Bure for their first win of the season.
     Bure scored at 3:05 of overtime as the Flames beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-3 Wednesday night.
     "It's great," Bure said of getting his team into the win column. "We've been working hard and we have a really good team. We played really undisciplined in the first few games. We didn't get our roles the way we wanted them. The more the season goes on, the more we'll put the past behind us and move on."
     Bure fired a shot at Garth Snow, then knocked in his own rebound over the sprawling goalie for his third goal of the season.
     "I got two or three whacks at it," Bure said. "I don't know if it was the second or third shot. I just saw the goalie go down and I tried to flip it over."
     Cory Stillman scored twice and Andrei Nazarov got his first goal as the Flames (1-3-1) handed the Canucks (3-1-0) their first loss of the season. Defenceman Derek Morris added two assists for Calgary.
     Markus Naslund, Alexander Mogilny and Andrew Cassels scored for Vancouver.
     "What we have to do is get our game at a level and keep it at that level," Canucks coach Marc Crawford said. "We weren't at that level tonight. We could have easily won the game but we didn't."
     Naslund opened the scoring at 3:11 of the first period when he converted a pass from Mark Messier while on a 2-on-1 short-handed break. Calgary scored on the same penalty just 22 seconds later when Stillman one-timed a cross-ice pass from Phil Housley past Snow to tie it 1-1.
     The Canucks took the lead again on a great power-play effort by Cassels. The former Flame fought along the boards for the puck before making a beautiful pass to Mogilny, who wristed a quick shot past goalie Grant Fuhr.
     Calgary tied it again before the end of the first on Nazarov's goal, then took their first lead of the game on Stillman's second goal of the game, a power-play marker at 1:05 of the second period.
     Cassels tied it for Vancouver later in the second when he scored on a goal-mouth scramble during a power play.
     "It was a hard-fought game, it was a divisional game and a win on the road," Flames coach Brian Sutter said. "We knew last year that we were one of the top two teams on the road so we know what we're capable of doing."
