#CBC: “Dougie Hamilton scores OT winner as Flames halt Wild’s comeback”


Dougie Hamilton scored 2:39 into overtime to lift the Calgary Flames over the Minnesota Wild 3-2 on Tuesday night.

Micheal Ferland and Sean Monahan each had a goal and assist and Johnny Gaudreau added three assists for the Flames, who began a four-game trip with a season-high fourth straight win. Mike Smith made 33 saves.

Mikael Granlund and Jared Spurgeon scored for Minnesota, which lost for just the third time in its last 14 home games — two of which were in overtime.

After Smith stopped Ryan Suter on a breakaway, Gaudreau outraced Jason Zucker to the puck going the other way. Gaudreau waited and fed Hamilton for a one-timer.

It’s the second straight game-winning goal for Hamilton. He scored with 16 seconds left Saturday as Calgary beat Anaheim 3-2.

Trailing 2-0 in the third period, Granlund got the Wild within one by beating Smith high on the glove side 7:16 into the final period. He has five goals in his past seven games.

A slap shot by Spurgeon from the right circle clanked off the far post and into the Flames’ net six minutes later, further igniting a crowd that booed Minnesota off the ice after the second period.

Monahan gave Calgary a 2-0 lead in the final minutes of the middle frame as he redirected a pass from Ferland past a sprawling Alex Stalock. With his 20th goal of the season, Monahan becomes the ninth player in Flames history to reach that mark in five consecutive seasons.

Ferland finished off a 3-on-2 with Monahan and Gaudreau six minutes into the game for a 1-0 lead. It was his third goal in three games and 18th of the season, second-best on the team.

The first-line trio has scored 51 of Calgary’s 116 goals this season.
