Langkow helps Flames squeak by Kings

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Daymond Langkow scored with 3:37 remaining in the third period as the Calgary Flames skated past the Los Angeles Kings, 3-2, on Saturday.

Defenseman Adrian Aucoin recorded his 100th career goal and Eric Nystrom also scored for the Flames, who extended their winning streak to six games after dropping four of five to start the season.

Miikka Kiprusoff made 34 saves, including 14 in the second period, en route to improving to 6-1-0 in his last seven contests against the Kings.

Rookie Oscar Moller netted a power-play goal the second period and tallied again in the third to erase a 2-0 deficit, but Los Angeles went on to suffer its fourth consecutive loss.

The Flames got the scoring started with 3:40 remaining in the first, when defenseman Jim Vandermeer's shot ricocheted off Nystrom, who deflected the puck under the legs of goaltender Jason LaBarbera.

Aucoin tallied nearly seven minutes into the second to give the Flames a 2-0 lead. With the man advantage, Mike Cammalleri and Todd Bertuzzi worked the puck from behind the net to the veteran defenseman, who converted a snap shot for his second goal of the season.

Moller halved the deficit with 7/12 minutes left in the session, knocking in a loose puck while standing on the doorstep.

Action got a bit testy late in the second as players scuffled near the boards. With Vandermeer and Patrick O'Sullivan serving as the main instigators, both were hit with roughing penalties. Vandermeer also drew a 10-minute misconduct.

Less than three minutes after Moller knotted the game at 2-2 with 5:55 remaining in the third, Langkow buried a wrist shot from in front of the net for what proved to be the game-winner. Kiprusoff survived a late flurry of shots from close range to preserve the win.

Making his 10th consecutive start to open the season, LaBarbera turned aside 18 shots for the Kings.
