Blackhawks top Flames in shootout 3-2
Chicago Blackhawks goalie Ray Emery, right, deflects away the puck as Calgary Flames' Tim Jackman crashes into him Saturday in Calgary. The Blackhawks beat the Flames in a shootout 3-2.
CALGARY, Alberta — Marian Hossa scored the tying goal with 2.3 seconds left in the third, Patrick Kane added a goal in regulation then had the shootout winner and the Chicago Blackhawks earned a 3-2 win over the Calgary Flames on Saturday night.
Ray Emery had 45 saves for Chicago (7-0-2), which stayed unbeaten in regulation.
Scoreless after two periods, Calgary outshot Chicago 24-6 in the third period and looked as if it was going to hand the Blackhawks their first regulation defeat when Jay Bouwmeester scored with 35 seconds remaining to put the Flames ahead 2-1.
However, Chicago pulled Emery for an extra skater and, in a scramble around the Flames net in the final seconds, Hossa pounced on the puck and fired it over a fallen Miikka Kiprusoff to send the game into overtime.
