Calgary 2, Ottawa 1 (OT)

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -- Daymond Langkow scored the winning goal

3:38 into overtime, leading the Calgary Flames to a 2-1 victory

over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night.

After Robyn Regehr intercepted Christoph Schubert's clearing

attempt at the Ottawa blue line, Regehr slid a pass to Jordan

Leopold who fired a slap shot on goal that Ray Emery stopped.

However, the rebound came right out to Langkow who swept it behind

the Senators goaltender.

Ottawa, who lost in a shootout at Vancouver on Friday, has

dropped two straight for the first time this season. Emery took his

first career loss after winning an NHL-record first nine starts.

The Senators (21-4-2) are tied with the New York Rangers with an

NHL-best 44 points.

Tony Amonte scored for Calgary (17-9-4), 10-1-1 in its last 12

home games.

Peter Schaefer had the lone goal for Ottawa.

Trailing 1-0 heading into the third period, Calgary got the

tying goal from Amonte at 12:40. Left all alone at the side of the

Ottawa goal crease, Shean Donovan zipped a perfect pass across the

slot to Amonte, who slid in his 400th NHL goal.

That snapped Emery's shutout streak at 117 minutes, 45 seconds.

He finished with 27 saves.

Ottawa had been 17-1 when scoring first and 17-0 when leading

after two periods.

Calgary limited the Senators to a season-low 21 shots and shut

down the top line of Dany Heatley, Daniel Alfredsson, and Jason


Of Miikka Kiprusoff's 20 saves, his best came late in the second

period when Ottawa defenseman Zdeno Chara broke in alone and had

his shot stopped.

Calgary came out flying in the opening few minutes but the early

momentum was quashed when Jarome Iginla was sent off for hooking at

3:12. The Senators took the lead on the ensuing power play.

A low slap shot from the blue line by Andrej Meszaros was

deflected over the shoulder of Kiprusoff by Schaefer, who was

cruising through the slot.Game notes
