Flames 3, Oilers 2
EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) _ Marc Savard’s second goal, a deflection 35 seconds into overtime, gave the Calgary Flames a 3-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday night.
Bill Lindsay also scored for Calgary, which won its NHL-record 11th overtime game. The Flames also won on consecutive nights for the first time this season _ they beat the Oilers 4-2 Friday night.
Jarome Iginla assisted on both of Savard’s goals to extend his points streak to 10 games.
Ryan Smyth and Todd Marchant scored for Edmonton.
Marchant tied it 2-2 with 1 minute left in regulation, but Savard got the game-winner in overtime as he deflected Iginla’s shot past goalie Tommy Salo.
Savard also scored 9:05 into the game on a slap shot on a 2-on-1 break.
The Flames took a 2-0 lead at 11:02 of the first when a shot by Rene Corbet deflected in off Lindsay.
Smyth deflected Jason Smith’s slap shot from the blue line past Fred Brathwaite at 19:44 of the second period.
Calgary moved ahead of the idle Anaheim Mighty Ducks into ninth place in the Western Conference and within four points of the eighth-place Oilers.
Brathwaite made 28 saves, while Salo stopped 20 shots.
