Glencross notches three goals in first camp games
CALGARY, AB -- Curtis Glencross showed off his scoring prowess on Thursday morning, notching three goals in the first two games at the Calgary Flames training camp.
The winger scored twice in Team A's 3-2 victory over Team B and then sniped one more in his team's 2-0 win over Team C later on in the morning.
Team A's top line, which had Matt Stajan centering Glencross and Lee Stempniak, did most of the damage for their squad. Stempniak assisted on all three of Glencross' tallies while Stajan picked up one helper in the victories.
Roman Horak also put forth a strong performance for Team A, setting up a goal in each game. In the opening tilt with Team B, Horak fed Greg Nemisz deep in the offensive zone and Nemisz was able to quickly snap off a shot in tight that slipped past Joey MacDonald. In the second game, Horak dished the puck to Ben Hanowski off of a face-off in Team C's zone. Hanowski sent a wrister past Karri Ramo in close to open the scoring.
