Another shorty for Flames in 2-0 win over Stars for 2-1 lead

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) Mikael Backlund scored Calgary's second short-handed goal in as many nights, Cam Talbot stopped 35 shots in his second shutout this postseason and the Flames beat the Dallas Stars 2-0 on Friday night to take a 2-1 series lead in their Western Conference playoff series.

The goal by Backlund in the second period hit the stick of goalie Anton Khodobin, who couldn't get the puck in his glove before it fell back onto the pads of his left leg, hanging there briefly before falling to the ice and rolling over the line.

"We've been really aggressive this whole tournament," said Backlund, who had a rush after a Stars skater fell down. "We've just been playing within our system and when the chances are there, we've been going for it, and we've been successful."
