CALGARY – Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn Fuller took advantage of Calgary Flames' weak defensive effort Wednesday night.
They helped the other and Seguin scored 24 seconds in overtime when they survived the Dallas Stars when they topped the lead of the third round and won a 4-3 victory. Winner Benn knocked the puck into the slot, where Seguin was wide open and gave the perfect shot to the goal at David Rittich.
"I mentally knew I was shooting there," Seguin said. "Before I had a game, a chance, and I saw the low gloves open and said if I got a chance in the slot, I would shoot again."
Rittich claimed that Benn was hit but after the video, the referees allowed the target.
It was a redemption for Benna, Captain Dallas, who in the third period made two minor penalties, Johnny GaudreauThe goal at 9:41 was 2-2.
"Apparently he played overtime with little guilt," Seguin said. "I'm happy he worked hard, he's our leader and the captain, and everyone's watching him."
Benn's tenth goal at 18:02, driving the perfect feed from Seguin, gave the visitors a 2-1 lead to the third.
"I like to think that everyone is following me, I am proud to be the captain of this team, and I'm trying to do the right thing all the time," Benn said. "If I do, someone should follow."
Mark GiordanoWith a goal at 10:51 in the third, Calgary briefly gave his first lead. But in less than three minutes, a novice defender Gavin Bayreuther unsuccessfully shot and shot around Rittich Matthew Tkachukhe's a devotee.
"We are lucky to get a point tonight," said Flames coach Bill Peters. "I did not think we were very good, I do not think our attention to detail was very good, and our commitment to doing that right was not where we needed to get two points."
Usually a dangerous combination of Gaudreau and Sean Monahan each completed the night minus-3. They were on the ice Jason Spezza inserted into the slot unseen and disposable a Radek Faksa Rittich went through just 41 seconds into the game. It was also their missing coverage in timeless hours.
"Loss, of course, that's even worse," said Monahan. "You go back to the game and get the lead, then return them and give them an easy time in timeless hours. That's for us, it's for me and I'm falling for it."
Dallas (13-10-3) captured four game skid sails on the road. The stars on Saturday in Vancouver will close their four-carriage road.
"It was important to get" W "," coach Jim Stars Montgomery said. "I thought our effort was great that our execution was bad … (…) The way the boys dived and fought was quite impressive."
Garnet Hathaway, with his first in 16 games, also scored Calgary (14-9-2). Flames is in their last six games 4-1-1 and heads the Pacific Division.
"When we took the lead, we had complete control," Giordano said. "We gave them a tier and we just stood a place with a few bad games. It's hard to swallow, frankly, I think we should win."
Khudobin again won the start in the absence Ben Bishop (lower body) expected on Saturday after missing the last five games. The 32-year-old Russian also started in Edmonton on Monday, so 30 stops in a 1-0 overtime loss.
