The Calgary Flames recorded their first road win of the 2013 National Hockey League season Tuesday night at Detroit's Joe Louis Arena, but at the end of the day are holding their breath.
According to the Associated Press, Flames head coach Bob Hartley will be provided with an update on Kiprusoff's condition today.
A major reason for the Flames' victory Tuesday was the offense they received from their defense. Veteran blueliner Dennis Wideman, who was acquired by the Flames in the off-season from the Washington Capitals for Jordan Henry and a fifth round draft pick in 2013, scored a goal and an assist. Defenceman Mark Giordano also scored his first of the season on the power play late in the third period.
The Flames next play in Columbus on Thursday. They improve to 2-3-2, but are still four points back of Phoenix for a playoff spot.
