(Newser) – The Calgary Flames scored twice on power play goals to defeat the Predators 5-1 last night. The loss leaves the struggling Predators winless on the road this season, where they've also scored just three goals, reports the Tennessean. Calgary goalie Miikka Kiprusoff, hot off a new multi-million-dollar deal, stopped 39 shots on the way to the victory. 

Predators goalie Chris Mason stopped 28 of 33 shots, but still lost his seventh in a row."It's pretty frustrating," said Predators captain Jason Arnott. "But there are no excuses in this game. We have to start burying the puck or we are not going to win."
