Fantasy Recap: May 9
By CHRIS NICHOLS -- SLAM! Sports
Calgary 4 San Jose 3 OT (Calgary leads series 1-0)
Steve Montador has all day in front of Evgeni Nabokov to net the winner in OT and that was his first point of the post-season... According to ESPN, Jarome Iginla has never scored against Evgeni Nabokov in his career and the trend continued Sunday... Iginla did pick up an assist on the OT GWG on a sweet pass though, giving Iggy 13 points in 14 GP... 31-year old Krzysztof Oliwa scored his second goal of the playoffs... The Flames welcomed Chris Simon back into the series, but the tough guy found himself in the penalty box twice in the first period and only a great Calgary PK stopped the Sharks from scoring... Craig Conroy scored his third and fourth goals of the post-season and now has a four-game point streak (3G, 2A)...Mike Ricci's second period marker was the first goal scored on Miikka Kiprusoff since Mathieu Dandenault scored midway through the third period in Game Four of the Detroit series... This is the second time in the playoffs that Kipper has faced 52 SOG in one game (Game Six vs. Vancouver was the other)... Shean Donovan's two-assist afternoon gives him five points in Calgary's last six games... Jordan Leopold scored his first point in seven games and has four overall now... Jonathan Cheechoo stretched his point streak to three games with an assist...Alex Korolyuk had a monster game and scored his third goal of the playoffs (First goal in eight games)... Vincent Damphousse has points in six of his past seven games before getting blanked Sunday... Patrick Marleau has now gone four games with no points... Scott Thornton's assist was his fourth point in the six games he has played in these playoffs... This was the first game since Game Four vs. St. Louis that Evgeni Nabokov has allowed three goals or more in a game (2 goals twice, 1 goal four times and one shutout).
