Glencross’ hat trick lifts Flames over Preds

Updated: March 15, 2013

Curtis Glencross notched the second hat trick
of his career to lead the Calgary Flames to a 6-3 win over the Nashville
Predators on Friday.

Jiri Hudler had a goal and an assist while Mark Giordano and Blake Comeau each
scored for the Flames, who have won their past two games. Miikka Kiprusoff
gave up three goals on 20 shots in the win.

David Legwand, Mike Fisher and Gabriel Bourque scored for the Predators, who
have dropped six of their last eight games.

For a second straight game Pekka Rinne was pulled from a start as he gave up
goals on Calgary’s first two shots of the game. Rinne was pulled in Thursday’s
7-4 loss to Vancouver and his backup finished that contest as well as this one
as Chris Mason allowed three goals on 19 shots.
