CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -Flames center Daymond Langkow flew back to Calgary on Monday, a day after leaving a game on a stretcher against the Minnesota Wild.

The 33-year-old spent Sunday night in a St. Paul hospital following the Flames' 4-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild, undergoing tests after taking a shot off the back of his neck.

At 5:20 of the second period, Langkow was checked in front of the Minnesota net by Wild defenseman Greg Zanon. With Langkow's head down as he fell forward, Calgary defenseman Ian White fired a point shot that hit his teammate at the base of the neck in between his shoulder blades.
