Begin, Stajan, Horak score in 3rd to rally Flames to 4-3 victory over Stars

DALLAS - Steve Begin, Matt Stajan and Roman Horak each scored their first goals of the season in the third period and the Calgary Flames overcame a two-goal deficit to defeat the Dallas Stars 4-3 Sunday.

Begin snapped a 3-3 tie with 9:30 remaining.

It was the Flames' second victory over the Stars in five days, having won 7-4 in Calgary on Wednesday.

Michael Cammalleri also scored for Calgary, while Joey MacDonald made 27 saves for his first win in his first start and second appearance overall for the Flames since he was claimed off waivers from Detroit on Feb. 11.

Cody Eakin, Reilly Smith and Ryan Garbutt scored second-period goals for Dallas, while Richard Bachman stopped 22 shots four days after he gave up six goals on 22 shots in Calgary.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
