Mike Cammalleri scored a goal and added two assists as the Calgary Flames took advantage of shaky goalie Chris Osgood and beat the Detroit Red Wings 5-3 on Monday night. Osgood had been in net for each of Detroit's victories in a four-game winning streak. However, he made an early exit and starting a fifth straight game for the first time this season. The only goal of the first period came at 10:57 when Dion Phaneuf scored his 11th goal on Calgary's second shot. Phaneuf's harmless-looking snap shot from just over the blue line beat Osgood on his glove side. Jamie Lundmark, Curtis Glencross and Craig Conroy, into an empty net, also scored for Calgary. Detroit rallied in the final 10 minutes behind goals from Johan Franzen and Jiri Hudler to get within 4-3. Pavel Datsyuk added his 30th goal for the Red Wings. Lundmark wristed a shot from deep in the corner toward the net that glanced off Osgood's pad and trickled underneath him to make it 2-0 at 2:21. The crowd immediately serenaded Osgood with derisive chants of "Os-good, Os-good." About three minutes later, Cammalleri skated behind the net and banked in a puck off Osgood's pad for his 36th. Osgood was then replaced with Ty Conklin. Having surrendered three goals on 14 shots, Osgood went straight to the dressing room and didn't return for the remainder of the game. The Flames opened up a five-point lead on the idle Vancouver Canucks atop the Northwest Division. On a night that Osgood had no luck, Flames goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff appeared to have plenty of it. Mikael Samuelsson had a breakaway in the second period, and after getting around a sprawled Kiprusoff, his shot hit the post, hit Kiprusoff in the leg, hit the post again, and slid along the line before being cleared by Cory Sarich. In the third period, a point shot from Niklas Kronwall smashed off the end boards and ricocheted off the back of Kiprusoff's outstretched pad before being covered. After Glencross' one-timer at 5:31 of the third put Calgary ahead 4-1, Franzen started the Red Wings rally with his 31st goal at 10:22. Hudler made it 4-3 with 6:57 left. Conroy clinched Calgary's win with 28 seconds remaining. The Red Wings outshot Calgary 33-27 overall, 16-9 in the third period. Notes: Daymond Langkow's assist on Phaneuf's goal was his 600th NHL point. ... Calgary RW David Van der Gulik was in the lineup after being recalled earlier Monday from Quad Cities (AHL). It was the third time in less than a month he was summoned from the minors. ... Calgary RW David Moss was awarded the 2008-09 Ralph T. Scurfield Humanitarian Award, which goes to the Flames player who exemplifies determination and leadership along with dedication to community service. ... Detroit is one of five NHL teams without a hat trick this season.
