CALGARY, Alberta (AP) _ Roman Turek made 23 saves to earn his second consecutive shutout as the Calgary Flames beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-0 on Saturday night.
Acquired in June from the St. Louis Blues, Turek has stopped 47 shots in 120 minutes this season.
Craig Conroy, Dave Lowry, Marc Savard and Craig Berube scored for Calgary.
Turek's best save came midway through the second period as the Blackhawks, down 2-0, suddenly came alive.
In the first of what turned out to be a flurry of scoring chances, speedy Blackhawks right wing Steve Sullivan was thwarted by Turek from close range.
Sullivan slipped the puck through the legs of defenseman Toni Lydman and moved in alone on Turek. He attempted to deke him but Turek sprawled and smothered Sullivan's shot.
Leading 2-0, Calgary added an insurance goal at 11:04 of the third period when Savard ripped a 20-foot wrist shot into the top corner for his second goal in as many games.
Berube made it 4-0 in the final minute.
After a scoreless opening period, Calgary took the lead just 19 seconds into the second.
After cutting through the slot, and being knocked to the ice, Conroy somehow got a stick on a slap shot from Derek Morris and deflected the puck into the top corner behind Jocelyn Thibault.
Just over a minute later, Dave Lowry increased Calgary's lead to 2-0 with a power-play goal.
Former Calgary defenseman Phil Housley, who spent the last three seasons with the Flames and was claimed off waivers by the Blackhawks nine days ago, was jeered by the crowd each time he touched the puck.
