Flames top Blackhawks in overtime
Calgary, AB (SportsNetwork.com) - T.J. Brodie buried the game-winner with 2:34 left in overtime, as the Calgary Flames outlasted the Chicago Blackhawks, 5-4, on Tuesday at Scotiabank Saddledome.
Just prior to the midpoint of the extra session, Brodie picked up a rebound on the low left side and raced behind the net before stuffing in a wraparound to send the Flames to their season-high third straight win.
Mikael Backlund lit the lamp twice, Matt Stajan notched a goal and an assist, and Lance Bouma added a marker for the Flames, who took two of three from Chicago to claim the season series for the first time since 2002-03.
Karri Ramo recorded the victory, stopping all nine shots he faced after opening the third period between the pipes in place of starter Reto Berra, who allowed four goals on 24 shots over 40 minutes.
Marian Hossa scored twice, while Ben Smith and Patrick Kane potted a goal apiece for the Blackhawks, who dropped to 0-2-2 over their last four games.
Corey Crawford was tagged with the loss, despite stopping 13-of-14 shots in relief of Antti Raanta, who allowed four goals on 15 shots before being removed near the midpoint of the second period.
