Kiprusoff, Flames blank Kings

Mike Cammalleri scored the lone goal of the 0.

The Flames extended their point streak to eight games (5-0-3) with the win.

Jonathan Quick stopped 17-of-18 shots for the Kings, who also lost 1-0 against Phoenix on Thursday. Los Angeles has been shutout eight times this season and has scored the fewest goals in the NHL.

"It's been the same thing for this team all year: finding ways to score goals," Kings forward Dustin Brown said. "We've been shut out twice in back- to-back 1-0 games at home against teams that are two points behind us in both cases. I don't want to say we didn't work hard, we did, but we've got to find ways to score goals."

A pair of former Kings broke a scoreless tie at the 4:03 mark of the third period. Tom Kostopoulos gathered the puck along the end boards and passed it in front for Cammalleri, who chipped the disc past Quick.

Kiprusoff, who recorded his 44th career shutout, made seven saves in the final frame to secure the victory.

"He was outstanding again," Flames head coach Brent Sutter said of Kiprusoff. "That's just the way he is. He makes those saves for us, especially those first ones."
