CALGARY, Alberta – Mark Giordano scored 52 seconds into overtime to lift the Calgary Flames over the Blackhawks, 4-3, on Sunday night.

Mikael Backlund sent a pass back to the blue line where Giordano took a couple strides and fired a shot into the top corner on Jeff Glass. It helped Calgary salvage a win after the Hawks’ Brandon Saad tied it with 1:46 left in the third period.

Matthew Tkachuk had two goals and Sean Monahan also scored for Calgary, which had lost five of seven home games. Mike Smith turned away 34 shots.

Jordan Oesterle and Jonathan Toews also scored for the Hawks, who extend their points streak against Calgary to 16 games (10-0-6), a streak that dates to Feb. 2, 2013. Glass finished with 35 saves.

Toews and Saad also had an assist and each snapped six-game pointless streaks.

Saad tied it with the goalie pulled. Toews won a faceoff back to Saad, whose quick shot deflected off the skate of Travis Hamonic and through Smith’s pads.

With Corey Crawford (upper body) sidelined, Glass, a Calgary native, made his second straight and second career start for the Hawks and was solid again.
