Flames v. Stars Postgame: Loser point

January 28 2010 01:09AM

Calgary Flames: 3 -- Dion Phaneuf, Jarome Iginla, Olli Jokinen

Dallas Stars: 4 -- Mike Modano, James Neal, Brad Richards

S/O Winner -- Loui Eriksson

Jay Bouwmeester took a boarding penalty thirty-five seconds later and the Stars had a two-man advantage, leading to a Brad Richards goal to tie the game. From there, the Flames and Stars went to a shoot-out and what do you know... the Flames lose making them winless in eight.
