Talk about a crowning achievement!
TJ Brodie was the hero for the Flames Tuesday night, as he scored in overtime to give Calgary a 2-1 victory over the L.A. Kings at the Scotiabank Saddledome.
Mikael Backlund feed Brodie a beautiful pass up the middle and Brodie went in alone, going forehand, backhand and beating Ben Bishop high glove side.

Micheal Ferland also scored for Calgary while Tanner Pearson had the Kings lone marker.
Brian Elliott made 28 saves while recently acquired Bishop, in his first start for L.A., also stopped 28.
The Flames are now 6-0-1 in their last seven games.
It was the second of five meetings this season for the two clubs, who are currently battling for a playoff spot.
The teams play three more times before the Stanley Cup dance starts, two of them at the Dome on March 19 and March 29.
An odd scenario played out on the game's first goal just under halfway through the first period.
Pearson took three whacks at a loose puck in front of Elliott while the Kings were on a powerplay with Matt Stajan in the box for tripping.
The third smack put the puck in the net but it appeared to happen after the whistle.
After the officials conferred with each other and ref Francois St. Laurent talked to Toronto on the headset, it was ruled a goal. Flames coach Glen Gulutzan challenged on the basis of goalie interference.
After another chat between St. Laurent and Toronto, the goal was upheld.
The Flames got on the board and tied the game in the second at the 9:44 mark when Ferland scored his 12th of the year after wiring a shot high blocker side past Bishop.

Ferland hammered Kings d-man Jake Muzzin in the corner as Muzzin backhanded the puck around the boards trying to clear the zone. Ferland then went straight to the slot where he took a pass from Mark Giordano who corralled the puck on the halfboards and delivered a perfect pass that he one-timed home.
NOTES: Sean Monahan scored his much ballyhooed 100th NHL career goal Friday against Florida. He reached another milestone Sunday against Carolina, skating in his 300th NHL game, making him the first player from the 2013 draft class to hit that mark … The Flames will play 11 of their next 15 games at the Dome … The first of Johnny Gaudreau 's three NHL hat-tricks came against the Kings on Dec. 22, 2014.
UP NEXT: The Flames host the Detroit Red Wings in the second tilt of a four-game home set (7 p.m., SNWEST, SPORTSNET960 THE FAN).
