2nd-period wrap: Flames 2, Hawks 1

CALGARY, Alberta -- The Chicago Blackhawks trailed the Calgary Flames 2-1 after two periods at the Saddledome on Friday.

The Flames took a late lead heading into the intermission thanks to a power-play goal by Jay Bouwmeester off a rebound in the slot. Michael Frolik took a four minute high-sticking penalty to give the Flames the man-advantage chance. Bouwmeester scored with just 1:04 left in the period.

The Hawks didn’t have many good scoring chances in the middle 20 minutes and Miikka Kiprusoff stopped the few they had. Jamal Mayers had a good look late in the period, but Kiprusoff didn’t give up a rebound on the hard shot.

The teams exchanged goals in the first period with Brent Seabrook getting the Hawks’ tally after Olli Jokinen scored for the Flames.
