Nordiques 4, Flames 0
QUEBEC (AP) _ Quebec Nordiques goaltender Richard Sevigny earned his first shutout of the season in the National Hockey League’s only game Friday night, leading his team to a 4-0 decision over the Calgary Flames.
In only his third start of the season and his first at home, Sevigny blocked 19 shots. It was the first time Calgary has been shut out since Nov. 10, 1981, or 264 regular season games.
Anton Stastny scored twice for Quebec, while Peter Stastny had a goal and two assists. Dale Hunter had a goal and one assist for Quebec and Mario Marois picked two assists in the game. The result reversed a 4-0 loss suffered by the Nordiques at the hands of Edmonton on Tuesday.
Sevigny’s biggest test came early in the third period when Jim Peplinski got loose on a breakaway but lost control of the puck. Sevigny also stopped Haken Loob’s point-blank shot with three minutes left in the game.
Rejean Lemelin faced 21 shots in goal for Calgary.
The Nordiques jumped into a 2-0 lead when Marois, Hunter and Peter Stastny converged to take advantage of two of three power-play opportunities, clicking twice in a span of just over two minutes late in the opening period.
Peter Stastny got his 17th of the season at 16:39 as Hunter was distracting Lemelin in front of the Flames’ net. Stastny scored with a wrist shot from the right faceoff circle.
A bench penalty for having too many men on the ice later proved costly for the Flames. A pass from Peter Stastny across the crease to brother Anton was deflected into the net by Hunter.
Quebec took a 3-0 lead at 15:15 of the second period when Anton Stastny got his 23rd of the season. He broke in on a 2-on-1 with linemate Jean-Francois Sauve and beat Lemelin.
