The Calgary Flames and the Chicago Blackhawks were fined $10,000 each Monday by the National Hockey League for a fight at the end of their playoff game at Chicago last weekend. The incident started when Denis Savard of the Blackhawks and Calgary's Joel Otto raised their sticks as the game ended. That prompted other players to move in, among them Chicago goaltender Alain Chevrier, who tackled Otto. At one point, Jim Peplinski of the Flames punched Chicago defenseman Dave Manson.

Shame did what five days' worth of practices couldn't--prepare the Chicago Blackhawks for their Campbell Conference championship series against the Calgary Flames. "We have to apologize for the first game; that was embarrassing," said Steve Thomas, who capped a three-goal outburst in the first 6:02 Thursday night as the Blackhawks won, 4-2, to send the series to Chicago tied at a win apiece. In suffering only its sixth home loss all season, Calgary bore little resemblance to the team that dominated while winning, 3-0, Tuesday night and led the NHL with 117 regular-season points, 51 more than Chicago, the lowest-ranked of the 16 playoff clubs.

Al MacInnis assisted on goals by Jamie Macoun and Joe Nieuwendyk and led a defense that held Chicago to nine shots in the first two periods as the Calgary Flames opened the National Hockey League's Campbell Conference finals Tuesday night with a 3-0 victory over the Blackhawks. Calgary led the NHL with 117 points this season. Chicago's 66 points were the fewest of the 16 playoff teams and fewest of any Stanley Cup semifinalist since Pittsburgh's 64 in 1970 when teams played four fewer than the current 80 games.

Al MacInnis' power-play goal from the right point at 15:05 of overtime Monday night gave the Calgary Flames a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks and a 3-1 lead in their National Hockey League semifinal playoff series. MacInnis' third goal of the playoffs came with 52 seconds remaining on a penalty drawn by Trent Yawney, who was whistled for a delay of game when he caught a loose puck in midair and threw it down ice. "I think he did it on reflex," Calgary Coach Terry Crisp said of Yawney.

The Winnipeg Jets traded goaltender Alain Chevrier to the Chicago Blackhawks today for future considerations. Blackhawks' spokesman Jim DeMaria said Chevrier would join the team in time for Friday's game at Detroit. Chevrier was traded to the Jets by the New Jersey Devils last summer for wing Steve Rooney. Chevrier appeared in 22 games for Winnipeg this season and posted a goals-against-average of 4.29.
