    Canucks 4, FLAMES 4 (OT)

    Savard Flames saviour in tie with Canucks

  • Summary

     CALGARY, Alberta (Ticker) -- Marc Savard tipped in Andrei Nazarov's slap shot with 3:42 left in regulation as the Calgary Flames rallied from three deficits for a 4-4 tie with the Vancouver Canucks.
     Nazarov fired a slapper that was headed wide of Kevin Weekes, but Savard tipped the puck through the goaltender's pads for his first goal as a Flame.
     Vancouver had the best scoring chances in overtime but settled for a tie that ran its unbeaten streak in Calgary to six games (4-0-2). Markus Naslund had a pair of slap shots stopped by Fred Brathwaite and Alexander Mogilny was denied in front on a wrist shot.
     Naslund gave the Canucks a 4-3 lead with 12:20 left in the third period. He took a pass in front from Bill Muckalt and put a wrister inside the right post for his fourth goal, giving him points in five of six games this season.
     Calgary's Grant Fuhr did not play, one night after failing in his first attempt to become the sixth goalie to record 400 wins.
     Nazarov and Valeri Bure scored 3:16 apart in the third period to lift the Flames into a 3-3 deadlock. It was the second goal of the game and fifth this season for Bure, who has points in six of Calgary's seven contests.
     The Flames had a 21-3 edge in shots in the third period and is 2-0-1 in the last three meetings with the Canucks.
     Former Flame Andrew Cassels fired home his third goal on a slap shot with 44 seconds left in the second period, giving Vancouver a 3-1 lead. He added an assist and is riding a five-game points streak with three goals and four assists.
