Brodie, Gaudreau lead Flames to victory over Rangers

by Staff Writer / Calgary Flames

CALGARY, AB -- TJ Brodie scored 2:09 into overtime and Johnny Gaudreau had two goals to help the Calgary Flames to a 5-4 win against the New York Rangers at Scotiabank Saddledome on Saturday.

Mason Raymond and Joe Colborne scored and Jonas Hiller made 25 saves for Calgary (13-14-2), which has won five straight games and swept a five-game homestand for the first time since Jan. 22-Feb. 1, 2014. The Flames have won nine in a row at home, one shy of the franchise record set from Nov. 7-Dec. 12, 2006.

Gaudreau scored two game-winning goals and one shootout-deciding goal during the homestand. His 21 points at home trails Patrick Kane (24) of the Chicago Blackhawks for most in the NHL.

Skating down his off wing, Brodie let go a shot that beat Rangers goaltender Antti Raanta far side to continue Calgary's streak.

Dan Boyle had two goals and J.T. Miller and Tanner Glass scored for the Rangers (18-9-4), who were 0-2-1 on a three-game road trip through Western Canada. The Rangers have lost four of the past five games and have two wins (2-6-2) in the past 10 games.

The Rangers rallied in the third period to force overtime.

Colborne chipped a shot over Raanta's shoulder at 4:57 to momentarily extend Calgary's lead to 4-1, but Glass beat Hiller from in close after taking a pass from Dominic Moore 16 seconds later. Boyle cut the lead to one, cutting out from below the goal line and sliding a backhand by Hiller's pad to make it 4-3 at 15:06.

Boyle tied the game with 1:12 remaining in the third period. On a power play and with Raanta on the bench for the extra attacker, Boyle sent a seeing-eye shot through a screen in front and over Hiller's shoulder to tie the game 4-4.

Miller scored on New York's third shot of the game, tapping a pass from Viktor Stalberg over Hiller to complete a tic-tac-toe play started by Kevin Hayes at 10:56 of the first period to put the Rangers up 1-0.

Raanta, who denied two of three shots faced in relief of starter Henrik Lundqvist in a 7-5 loss against the Edmonton Oilers on Friday, made seven saves in the first eight minutes of the game and nine in the period.

Gaudreau tied the game 1-1 at 17:41 of the second period, intercepting a breakout pass up the middle by Rangers defenceman Keith Yandle before skating in and putting a shot over Raanta's glove for his team-leading 11th goal.

Raymond put Calgary up 17 seconds later with his first goal in 15 games. Breaking in on a 2-on-1, Raymond took a pass from Michael Frolik and beat Raanta for his second goal of the season.

Gaudreau doubled Calgary's lead 2:32 into the third, taking a breakaway pass from David Jones before beating Raanta with a forehand-to-backhand deke.
