Bourque scores twice as Flames down Habs

Rene Bourque scored a pair of goals, as the 1.

Niklas Hagman and David Moss also scored, while Miikka Kiprusoff stopped 35 shots for the Flames, who avoided their first 0-3 start since the 2007-08 season.

Kiprusoff became the franchise leader in wins, at 263.

Andrei Kostitsyn had the lone goal for the Canadiens, who got just 17 saves from Carey Price in their home-opener.
