The winning goal came on a fluke, but the Calgary Flames put an end to Edmonton's dreams of a third consecutive Stanley Cup with a well-deserved, 3-2 victory Wednesday night at Edmonton. Oiler rookie defenseman Steve Smith was the goat. His clearing pass five minutes into the final period struck the skate of his own goaltender, Grant Fuhr, and caromed into the net to break a 2-2 tie. The goal was credited to Calgary's Perry Berezan, but he wasn't within 10 feet of the puck.

"It happened late, but he was able to finish the game," a glum-sounding Lombardi said on Thursday afternoon in a telephone interview.

The approaching winter and longer nights make this an ideal time to head north to visit one of nature's most amazing phenomena: the northern lights. And one of Canada 's national parks provides several ideal viewing locations within striking distance of creature comforts. Jasper National Park , (780) 852-6176, in west-central Alberta, is officially the largest “dark sky preserve” in the world. Such places - well away from urban lights - provide superb opportunities for stargazing and viewing the aurora borealis.
