It almost looked like the St. Louis Blues had Calgary in the first period when they scored two goals and outshot the Flames 9-2.

The Flames regrouped and fought back to win the game in overtime.

First Period
The Blues outshot the Flames 9-2 and scored two goals. David Backes scored the first goal of the game from a rebound off Miikka Kiprusoff’s left pad. Later, rookie Patrick Berglund scored his seventh goal in a power play from the top of the faceoff circle.

Second Period
The Flames turned up the physical play and gained momentum. Rene Bourque put the team on board with a wrister from a pass by Craig Conroy. Blues’ lead scorer Brad Boyes retaliated and scored a goal off the skate of Wayne Primeau on a power play. Brandon Prust exited in the middle of the period with a possible jaw injury after a high elbow by Cam Janssen.

Third Period
The Flames started the third with Jarome Iginla scoring his eighth power play goal of the season from a pass by Todd Bertuzzi from behind the net. Later, David Moss tied the game on a power play after Backes was in the box for a boarding penalty on Mark Giordano.
Mike Cammalleri snapped a goal from a pass by Jarome Iginla in the second time the Flames have played an overtime period this season.

THE BIG HIT: Brandon Prust and Cam Janssen had quite a tussle 2:44 in the first as they exchanged punches to a rivalry that goes all the way back to when they were in juniors. Later in the game the two collided in open ice and Prust suffered a broken jaw.
THE BIG SAVE: : Mikka Kiprusoff was able to cover up two shots on his bum in a mad scrum during a Blues power play in the second. Adrian Aucoin helped out by clearing the puck out of the area.

THE ROSTER: Dustin Boyd is listed day-to-day with an upper body injury and Andre Roy was a healthy scratch. Defencemen James Vandermeer continues to be out with a broken leg as well as Rhett Warrener
