LOS ANGELES (AP)

Miikka Kiprusoff made 36 saves, and Michael Cammalleri scored on a power play in the first period in the Calgary Flames' 2-0 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night. Rene Bourque added an empty-netter with 36 seconds remaining. The Northwest Division-leading Flames, 3-0-0 against Los Angeles this season, stopped the Kings' four-game winning streak with only their second victory in seven games. Cammalleri scored his team-leading 29th goal at 8:58 of the first against his former team. Todd Bertuzzi's pass across the crease found Cammalleri waiting on the right side and he swiped it in. Bourque scored his 19th goal after Los Angeles pulled goalie Jonathan Quick for an extra attacker with 1:10 remaining in the third. Bourque caught up to a pass out in front of him and poked the puck across the goal line in front of a lone defender. Calgary captain Jarome Iginla's goal-scoring drought extended to six games. He has just two goals in his last 19 games. The Kings were 0-for-7 on the power play and outshot Calgary 36-20. Quick stopped 18 shots. Los Angeles was 7-1-0 in its previous eight games, but lost for the eighth time in 11 games at Staples Center. The Kings were shut out for the first time since a 4-0 loss against Detroit on Jan. 15. The Flames played solid defense in front of Kiprusoff, staving off a 5-on-3 for 1:55 in the third period after Craig Conroy was sent off for hooking and Robyn Regehr joined him for a delay-of-game penalty. Matt Greene's slap shot from the right side bounced off the right leg of Kiprusoff, who came out of the crease to make the save at 10:23, ending one of the Kings' best scoring chances in the third.
