CALGARY -- From the opening shift to the end of the game, it was clear the Calgary Flames were happy to be back home. Calgary scored on the first shift, and Michael Cammalleri scored twice as the Flames cruised to a 5-2 win over the Washington Capitals on Saturday. Cammalleris first goal gave Calgary a 3-1 lead 13-minute mark of the first period. "I thought it was nice for us to come out with a high energy start," said Cammalleri, who was playing in his fourth game after missing the first seven with a hand injury. "(We) just came off a nine or 10-day road trip, quite a lot of travel and I thought it was a testament to the groups will to win the way that we were able to get going off the start." The Flames surprised by starting the season 3-0-2. But things didnt go as well on a difficult five-game road trip in which they were able to pick up just a single win. "We ended with two losses and that didnt feel good for anybody but at the same time, you regroup, youre excited to come home, excited to play in front of our fans and know that if we can put some wins together were right back where we want to be," said Cammalleri, who also had an assist and has five points (three goals, two assists) on the season. The Flames big achievement was holding Capitals star Alex Ovechkin to no points for the first time in eight career games against Calgary. In the first seven, he amassed eight goals and seven assists. "The start, we werent ready for it. They jumped on us right away, scored first shift. They had momentum and we kept making mistakes in our zone," said Ovechkin. Slow starts have been an issue for the Capitals all season. Theyve been outscored 12-6 in the first period. "I dont think we jump in right away. Something has to be happening. We have to score or there needs to be a big play by a goalie," said Ovechkin. "We were a little sleepy out there tonight." Not only did Ovechkin, the NHLs third leading scorer, get shutout, but so did the Capitals No. 2 ranked power play, which went 0 for 4 against a Calgary penalty kill that entered the night ranked 29th. "The plan was to not allow (Ovechkin) to get the puck. The only place in the game where it was pretty tough was on the power play. Hes so skilled and playing on the far side, he is basically impossible to cover," said Flames coach Bob Hartley. "Karri Ramo had a couple of big saves on him and I thought that 5-on-5, the Stajan line and whoever was playing on D against Ovie did quite a job." Also scoring for Calgary (5-4-2) was Kris Russell, Jiri Hudler and Curtis Glencross, with Russell and Dennis Wideman finishing plus-five. Calgary, which has yet to lose in regulation at the Saddledome (3-0-1), continues its three-game homestand Wednesday night with the Toronto Maple Leafs in town. Jason Chimera and Aaron Volpatti scored for Washington (5-6-0), which saw its three-game winning streak come to an end. The Capitals have two stops left in a five-game road trip, the in Vancouver on Monday. It was the second and final meeting of the season between the two teams and for Holtby, the night went similar to the first meeting, when he was pulled 16:22 into the first after three goals on 11 shots and the Capitals down 3-0. On this night, it was three goals in 12:50 and a 3-1 deficit. Calgary got off to a fast start, jumping out to a 1-0 lead on a superb opening shift by the line of Cammalleri with Calgary kids Joe Colborne and TJ Galiardi. The trio hemmed the Capitals in their end nearly the entire time and the persistent pressure led to Russells first goal as a Flame at 1:04. "We werent happy with the way we had come out to start the previous games. We knew that we were behind the 8-ball and we didnt want to have it happen, especially to a team like this," Russell said. "We did a good job of really making sure we were focused from the start and ready for that first shift." The shot onslaught continued and was up to 11-2 in Calgarys favour at 7:24 after red-hot Hudler converted Sean Monahans rebound. Hudler leads the Flames with 13 points and has points in 10 of Calgarys first 11 games. "Were going to have to realize as a group that we have to do something before the game to make sure were prepared because the majority of the games were losing, its because of the first period," said Holtby. "Its nothing to do with systems, its nothing to do with what the coaching staff can do, its what we do as professional athletes, professional hockey plays. You prepare yourself and were not doing a good enough job in here." Ramo finished with 27 saves to even his record at 2-2-1. Holtby suffered the loss and is 4-5-0.

Less than an hour after wrapping up practice, an NBA spokesman confirmed in an email to The Associated Press that league officials reviewed the tapes from Thursday nights altercation and determined none of the players who stepped onto the court would be punished for the decisive game of this first-round series. It was no surprise to the Pacers. "Were planning for him to be here until were told hes not going to be in there," coach Frank Vogel said shortly before the decision was made public. "I think he stayed in the vicinity of the bench." Players who leave the "vicinity" of the bench during a fracas can be suspended under league rules. Few, including Stu Jackson, the leagues former disciplinarian, expected that to happen with George, who took two slow, short steps onto the court before he was pushed back by assistant coach Popeye Jones. Jackson wrote on Twitter that he didnt expect the league to suspend George, Indianas best player and an All-Star starter. Losing George would have been a major blow to the Pacers comeback hopes. George has topped 20 points in all six games, has double-doubles in five of them and has been the one Pacers defender able to slow down quick, shifty Hawks guard Jeff Teague. And it was George and David West who saved the Pacers season with a late Thursday night in Atlanta, too. All the leagues best regular season home team must do now to reach the second round and avoid the distinction of becoming the sixth No. 1 seed in league history to be eliminated in the first round is protect its home court. Lately, thats been a problem. "My thing is that three of the last four times weve played these guys (in Indy), they built 20-point leads and beat us pretty good," Vogel said. "So I dont think anyone from this team can thinnk were going to be OK just because were back home.dddddddddddd." The eighth-seeded Hawks understand. They had a chance to wrap up the best-of-seven series at home and rallied from a nine-point deficit in the third quarter to take a five-point lead late in the fourth. Yet they still lost. "Weve responded well all year when weve been in difficult situations," coach Mike Budenholzer said Friday. "Part of our response is going to have to be better execution. I think we have a lot of positive reference points from all year. Our group has been very good and very resilient. I have a lot of confidence in our group." But this is going to be different. The Pacers, who spent all season chasing the Eastern Conferences top seed, expect a raucous crowd for the first Game 7 to be played at home in the franchises NBA history. Plus, they appeared to find a defensive solution to Atlantas spread offence by going small in Game 6. The Hawks, meanwhile, have only a day to adjust to Vogels new rotations and are on their own historic quest. A win Saturday would give Atlanta the distinction of having the fewest regular-season wins (38) of any second-round team since Detroits 36-win team beat Milwaukee in the first round of the 1976 playoffs, according to STATS. "Weve won on that floor before, so we know we can do it," Teague said. "We just have to go out there and do what we do and play our style of basketball, and it will take care of itself." George has plenty of motivation after a stressful week that included ceding home-court advantage for the second time in the series, losing his 2014 All-Star ring in a burglary that took place while he was playing Game 5, two elimination games and speculation that his 24th birthday celebration might be marred by the announcement of a one-game suspension. Theres only one thing that really would help him relax -- getting a second straight win and setting up ' ' '
