In a fairly even, low-shooting final frame, Alex Tanguay received a slick pass from Jarome Iginla to put the Flames up 4-0  and cap off the scoring in front of 41,022 fans at the 2011 Heritage Classic. After some shaky moments in the second period, the Flames never looked overly panicked with the lead, and Montreal just couldn't beat Kiprusoff, who made more than his fair share of high-quality stops. 

With the win, the Flames now leap into a tie for fifth-place in the Western Conference with the Nashville Predators at 70 points, while Montreal remains in sixth place in the East.
