Stars Drop To Flames, 5-4
CALGARY, Alberta (AP) –– Mike Cammalleri had a goal and two assists and the Calgary Flames used a four-goal second period for a 5-4 win over the Dallas Stars on Monday night.
The Flames came into the game struggling offensively with six goals in their previous five games, but broke out with four goals over the final 11 minutes of the second period to overcome a 2-1 deficit.
Tied 3-3, Calgary took its second lead of the second period when Mark Giordano’s low slap shot eluded Dallas goaltender Kari Lehtonen for a power-play goal at 16:58.
Steve Ott’s tripping penalty at 18:33 gave the Flames their fourth man advantage of the period. Cammalleri’s attempted dump-in caromed into the slot off the skate of Stars defenseman Trevor Daley. Alex Tanguay’s quick shot was partially stopped by Lehtonen, but still went over him and landed in the net at 19:32.
Olli Jokinen and Blake Comeau also scored for Calgary.
Jamie Benn scored two goals, Mike Ribeiro and Philip Larsen also scored for Dallas. The Stars, starting a four-game road trip, have lost five of their past six away from home.
