EDMONTON, AB - Roman Horak capped off a third period three-goal rally in the shootout to hand the Flames a 6-5 victory over the Edmonton Oilers at Rexall Place on Saturday.
It was the second and final game of the night between the two clubs who participated in pre-season split-squad games in each of their respective buildings.
Things looked bleak for the Calgary group in Edmonton, facing a 5-2 deficit with less than nine minutes remaining before Lance Bouma cued the comeback with his first goal in a Flames jersey in over a year. Josh Jooris continued to turn heads finding the twine twice in the final seven minutes to even the score 5-5.
Goaltending prospect Reto Berra stood tall in the shootout, denying Linus Omark and Taylor Hall, while Sven Baertschi and Horak capitalized to give the Flames the win.
Karri Ramo started the match in goal for the Flames and turned aside 13 Edmonton shots while Berra stopped all but one of the 14 shots he faced.
Ben Street and Dennis Wideman capped off the scoring for Calgary who will embark on a two-game pre-season road trip to play a pair of natural site contests in Saskatoon and Regina, Saskatchewan.
