Flames beat playoff-bound Kings in SO
Calgary, AB (SportsNetwork.com) - Sean Monahan supplied the game winner in the fourth round of the shootout, as the Calgary Flames secured a 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday at the Saddledome.
After the first three shooters came up empty, Marian Gaborik lit the lamp with a wicked wrister over Karri Ramo's glove, but Jiri Hudler answered with a heavy slapper at the other end to extend the shootout.
Ramo then turned away Jeff Carter before Monahan skated in and lifted a shot over Quick's blocker to put the Flames on top. Mike Richards had a chance to extend the shootout, but his shot missed wide to give Calgary the win.
T.J. Galiardi tallied a goal and an assist, while Matt Stajan and Monahan each added a regulation marker for the Flames, who have won four straight games. Ramo registered 41 saves in the victory.
Anze Kopitar, Jarret Stoll and Dwight King each scored once for the Kings, who are locked into the third spot in the Pacific Division, despite dropping their third straight game.
Quick made just 15 saves in the setback.
