After a scrambled faceoff to the right of Calgary goaltender
Miikka Kiprusoff, the puck squirted to Bulis alone in the slot and
he knocked a quick wrist shot over Kiprusoff's glove.
Ryan Kesler and Josh Green scored 51 seconds apart midway
through the first period for a Vancouver team (2-5-0) that dressed
all its regulars except defenseman Lukas Krajicek, who missed the
game with the flu.
Jarome Iginla converted a power play just 1:46 into the game --
his third goal in as many games -- and Andrei Zyuzin scored after
another man advantage ended for the Flames (3-2-1), who rested top
defensemen Robyn Regehr and Dion Phaneuf.
Kiprusoff finished with 36 saves and was at his best against a
Canucks power play that failed to capitalize on nine opportunities.
Calgary center Stephane Yelle left the game midway through the
third period and didn't return after taking a low hit along the
boards from Canucks defenseman Kevin Bieksa, who was penalized for
tripping on the play.
