(Newser) – Dallas has seen the stars align in its favor plenty of times in the past weeks, but last night all the luck went Calgary's way, and the Flames skated away with a 3-2 victory. Grabbing a short-handed goal as well as a power-play score, Calgary won on just 18 shots to the Stars' 31, reports the Dallas Morning News. Elsewhere in the NHL:

  • Nikolai Khabibulin's 38 saves added up to a 3-0 perfect game, his career 37th and Chicago's first this season, as Minnesota just couldn't get a break.
  • Anaheim gained ground on division-leading Dallas with a 3-2 shootout victory over Colorado, as Jean-Sebastien Giguere blocked all three shots and Corey Perry found the back of the Avalanche net.
