CHICAGO - Kris Russell scored at 1:32 of overtime, Reto Berra made 42 saves in his first NHL game and the Calgary Flames defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 on Sunday night.

Russell's shot from the blue line clanked off the crossbar and past Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford, ending Calgary's 10-game losing streak in Chicago. The Flames won at the United Center for the first time since March 2008.

Mike Cammalleri and Curtis Glencross scored in regulation for the Flames. Calgary's T.J. Galiardi missed on a second-period penalty shot.

Chicago's Marian Hossa scored a power-play goal with 4:19 left in the third period to tie it at 2. Patrick Kane also scored for Chicago, which had won three in a row.

Crawford made 27 saves.

Quote of the Day

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
