Cammalleri, Flames edge Sharks in shootout
Calgary, AB (SportsNetwork.com) - Mike Cammalleri scored in the third round of the shootout to help the Calgary Flames to a 2-1 win over the San Jose Sharks on Monday.
Cammalleri skated in on Calgary's final attempt and blew a wrister past Alex Stalock before Karri Ramo sealed the win with a stop on James Sheppard.
Despite the loss, though, San Jose clinched a playoff spot for the 10th straight season with the point.
Joe Colborne had the only goal of regulation for the Flames, who have won five of their last seven. Ramo stopped 33 shots in the win.
Sheppard scored for the Sharks, who have dropped three of four. Stalock made 26 saves in the loss.
San Jose scored at 18:11 of the first period when Matt Nieto skated in down the right wing and crossed over to the slot, with Sheppard charging the net. Nieto's shot was blocked by a defender, but the puck found its way to the stick of Sheppard and he shot it in for his fourth of the year.
The Flames tied the game with two minutes showing on the clock in the second period, as Tyler Wotherspoon gave a slap-pass from the left point to the low right circle where Colborne roofed in a wrister for his ninth goal of the season.
The third period and overtime passed without a marker, as Ramo stopped 12 shots and Stalock made seven.
San Jose plays in Edmonton on Tuesday ... Calgary hosts Anaheim on Wednesday ... The Sharks won three of the five games against the Flames this season ... The Sharks were 0-for-2 on the power play while the Flames went 0-for-3.
