Recap: Calgary vs. Edmonton
Calgary, AB (SportsNetwork.com) - Josh Jooris scored 1:08 into overtime to give the Calgary Flames a 4-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers.
Just coming out of the penalty box, Jooris skated down the right wing on a 2- on-1, took a feed from Jiri Hudler and wristed the puck over the glove of Ben Scrivens for the win.
"This is a pretty special group," Flames coach Bob Hartley said. "We never quit."
Joe Colborne had two goals and Lance Bouma scored the other for the Flames, who have won four in a row. Jonas Hiller turned away 17 shots in the win.
Jordan Eberle, Andrew Ference and Matt Fraser all lit the lamp for the Oilers, who were coming off a win on Tuesday that had snapped a nine-game losing streak. Scrivens allowed four goals on 28 shots in the loss.
"It's somewhat frustrating, but I think we can take a couple things out of this game," Oilers coach Todd Nelson said. "On the tail end of a back-to-back, that's a solid effort."
Edmonton scored with 3:54 left in the first on the power play when Fraser banked in a shot off the goaltender from the right side of the net.
Halfway through the second, the Oilers made it a 2-0 game as Eberle's wrister from the slot found the back of the net for his seventh goal of the season.
Calgary got one back with 1:59 to play in the second with a power play marker after Colborne whipped it into the net from the right side.
At 4:28 of the third, the Flames tied the game off a rebound goal from Bouma, but Ference gave his team the lead back five minutes later thanks to a big blast from the left point.
Colborne, though, tied the game once again with 8:05 to play in regulation as Sean Monahan threw the puck on net from the slot and Colborne was in front to put home the rebound.Game Notes
