Flames defeat Sharks on run out time

Calgary Flames won against the San Jose Sharks 3-2

This kind of unique situation. I don’t think we ever had that before. We’re definitely going to learn from that one. Good thing that Chad came up big again.

Sharks defense man Tim Heed, has made his National Hockey League debut but that was not on the pre-game list that was submitted to the official scorer and was ineligible to play, for National Hockey League ruled that the time should be at 5.2. The remainder of the game with the five defensemen and one of the players left the second period with a lower-body injury.

CALGARY – Dougie Hamilton scored with 2:19 remaining, and Chad Johnson saved a breakaway with eight seconds left to lift the Calgary Flames to a 3-2 win against the San Jose Sharks at Scotiabank Saddledome on Wednesday.

Hamilton scored short side on Sharks goaltender Aaron Dell to break a 2-2 tie. Johnson denied Sharks forward Mikkel Boedker on a shorthanded breakaway in the final seconds.

“I think everybody was pretty shocked,” Johnson said. “We’ve got a power play and all of a sudden, eight seconds left, a guy’s on a breakaway from the blue line. You’ve kind of just try to stay focused and stay with him and thankfully nothing came of it.”

Johnson, who made 25 saves, also stopped Boedker on a penalty shot at 14:33 of the third period.

“I played with him [with the Phoenix Coyotes], so I tried to go back in the memory log there and just try to remember what he did,” Johnson said. “He had two good looks there, but I got lucky and made the saves.”

Matthew Tkachuk had a goal and an assist, and Michael Frolik scored for the Flames (23-19-2), who have won six of the past nine games and are 13-6-0 in their past 19.

“I think for us, we’ve just got to try to win every game,” Hamilton said. “Right now it’s tough to move up the standings, [but] we’ve got to do it now instead of trying to do it later in the season.”

Logan Couture and Brent Burns scored, and Dell made 25 saves for the Sharks (25-15-2), who split a two-game road trip after winning 5-3 at the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday.

“You don’t like to give away points,” Burns said. “That’s all that matters.”

Couture gave the Sharks a 1-0 lead at 9:40 of the first period when he redirected Burns’ point shot on the power play past Johnson.
