Vancouver at Calgary

    Flames 3, Canucks 1


    CALGARY, Alberta -- Daymond Langkow had a goal and an assist Tuesday night, and the Calgary Flames beat the Vancouver Canucks 3-1 in a preseason game.

    Adam Cracknell snapped a 1-1 tie with 3:33 left to give the Flames a 2-1 lead. Langkow followed with a breakaway goal just over two minutes later to seal the win.

    Tony Amonte also scored for Calgary. Josh Green had the lone goal for the Canucks in their exhibition opener.

    The only regular put into the Vancouver lineup by new head coach Alain Vigneault was center Matt Cooke.

    Calgary, in its second game, iced a more experienced group including second-year defenseman Dion Phaneuf -- making his season debut. The heavy hitter leveled Canucks forward Gordie Dwyer just 35 seconds into the game.

    Green gave the Canucks a 1-0 just 49 seconds after the opening faceoff.

    Calgary tied it during a power play by capitalizing on good puck movement by Amonte, Byron Ritchie and Dustin Boyd, who had an assist.

    Flames defenseman Rhett Warrener left the game early in the second period with an undisclosed injury.
