Kiprusoff makes 38 saves to lead Flames in 1-0 shooutout win over Wild

Kiprusoff continued his dominance of the Wild, making 38 saves in regulation and overtime and then stuffing Pavol Demitra and Brian Rolston in the shootout to deliver a victory for the Flames, who won their fourth in a row.

After getting little help from his offence for the first 65 minutes, Kiprusoff finally got a hand in the shootout.

Tanguay started things by beating Niklas Backstrom high on the stick side, and Iginla scored through the five-hole after Kiprusoff shut down Demitra.

That left it up to Rolston, Minnesota's leading goal scorer, but after a fake shot right in front, Kiprusoff smothered the puck to seal the victory.
