There was not enough protection

Vancouver, BC (SportsNetwork. [url=http://www.footballsteelerstore.us/Black-Friday-James-Conner-Jersey/]James Conner Jersey[/url] .com) - Joni Ortios first start of the season was a memorable one, as the 23-year-old netminder shut out the Vancouver Canucks and carried the Calgary Flames to a 1-0 victory -- the clubs first over its Pacific Division rival in nearly two years. Ortio was recalled from Adirondack of the AHL on Friday and gave Jonas Hiller the night off. He was peppered with 36 shots and, with the help of the post on several occasions, denied every one of them. The guys did a heck of a job in front of me, Ortio said. We kept them on the outside pretty much the whole game. They didnt get a lot of Grade-A chances. Mikael Backlund provided the game-winning goal on Calgarys first shot. The Flames, who came in 0-3-0 in the new year, had dropped nine straight against the Canucks, their previous win coming on Mar. 3, 2013. Eddie Lack saved all but one of the 23 shots he faced in the loss. Sometimes you play well and dont win, that was tonight, Canucks head coach Willie Desjardins said. It took 5:38 for the Flames to record their first shot, but they made it count. A turnover in the neutral zone resulted in a rush the other way, and David Jones fed Backlund in front for his fourth goal of the season. The Canucks had a goal disallowed with 4:29 remaining in the second when it was ruled Henrik Sedin knocked the puck in with a high stick. Vancouver, which did not have a power play the entire game, only recorded eight shots in the third period after keeping Ortio busy with 28 over the first two. The best chance came in the final minute with Lack pulled, but Ortio secured a loose puck in the crease just in time. Game Notes Ortio went 4-4-0 in nine games with Calgary late last season ... Vancouver went 2-3-0 on its five-game homestand ... Flames defenseman Mark Giordano and Canucks forward Radim Vrbata were both named to the All-Star Game on Saturday, while Flames rookie forward Johnny Gaudreau was chosen to participate in the skills competition.

The addition of new safety rails on Tuesday comes a day after labour officials said the installation of 20,000 temporary seats at the Itaquerao stadium could not continue until safety concerns were addressed. On Saturday, a 23-year-old worker died after falling from about 26 feet while installing the seats needed for the opener. Fast Engenharia, the company in charge of the temporary structures, was yet to release information about a new construction timetable for the stadium, which was already delayed. The company said in a statement that it was preparing a report to show labour officials that all the necessary measures had been implemented. It said the report would be delivered by the end of the day on Tuesday. The company, which reiterated that all of its safety measures were in accordance with Brazilian regulations, said that after the analysis of the report it expected construction to "resume immediately so it could deliver the work by the established deadline." Before the accident, FIFA expected the venue to be ready about a month ahead of the June 12 opening match between Brazil and Croatia. Sao Paulos vice mayor didnt expect the work stoppage to cause significant delays to the stadiums construction, saying the installation of the temporary seats was a "relatively simple job." "Its not a complex situation," Nadia Campeao told Radio Estadao. "Even if work is stopped for a few days so the recommended adjustments can be made, it shouldnt alter the final timetable." FIFA and the local World Cup organizing committee released a statement downplaying the delay caused by the work interruption, which they called "t;standard procedure when accidents of this nature occur.

" "FIFA and the LOC support any efforts to improve workers safety by the authorities," the statement said. "Given the advanced state of the assembling of the temporary stands, we believe that the schedule for delivery of these areas will not be impacted." A labour ministry official in Sao Paulo said the construction stoppage was needed to eliminate the risk of another death. "If there are no additional safety measures, the work cant continue," Luiz Antonio de Medeiros told the Agencia Estado news service. "There was not enough protection, it was irresponsible." Fast Engenharia has denied any wrongdoing and said the worker had all required safety equipment available to him at the time of the accident. Investigators said an initial probe showed the worker didnt connect himself to a safety cable. According to witness accounts, he said he only had a "quick thing" to finish at the site. Medeiros said additional safety measures could have prevented the death even if the worker wasnt connected to his safety cable. The safety rails were being added around areas where workers installed the temporary seats. FIFA and the local World Cup organizing committee did not immediately answer requests for comments on the work stoppage. Construction was already behind schedule at the Itaquerao stadium because of the damage caused by another accident that killed two workers following a crane collapse in late November. A giant roofing structure fell on part of the stadiums facade, significantly pushing back the stadiums date of completion. The stadium, being built by popular Brazilian club Corinthians, is expected to cost about $490 million. In addition to the opener, it will host three group matches, one second-round game and one of the semifinals.
