After a rather sluggish first period that saw the Flames put just five shots on net (though one did get by Semyon Varlamov), they picked up the pace in the second and took the lead on a power play goal by Curtis Glencross about six minutes into the period.
Colorado had nine shots on goal in each of the first two periods and leads Calgary in that department, 18-16. The Flames had 11 shots on goal in the second period and converted on their only power play opportunity of the game to this point.
Calgary has a 21-19 edge in the faceoff circle, while Colorado has out-hit the Flames 16-13. Colorado's league-leading power play unit has had just one chance so far.
