Fuhr Hurt Again as Flames Beat Oilers

From Associated Press

Gary Roberts had three goals and an assist as the Calgary Flames beat Edmonton, 6-2, Friday night in a game marred by another injury to Oiler goaltender Grant Fuhr.

Fuhr, who has been in and out of the Oiler lineup all season, had to leave the game after re-injuring his left shoulder in the first period.

Fuhr, making his first start since injuring his shoulder on March 13, didn’t return for the second period after facing 11 shots in the first. He was replaced by Bill Ranford.

It was Roberts’ first NHL three-goal night and gave him a career high of 38 goals for the season.


The Flames won the season series against their provincial rivals, 4-3-1.
