For the first time this season the Calgary Flames won twice in a row. On Thursday night in Columbus, Alex Tanguay scored at 1:07 in overtime, as the Flames defeated the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-3 to improve to 3-3-2 on the season, and only three points back of the Edmonton Oilers in the Western Conference with two games in hand.
According to TSN, Tanguay leads the Flames with four goals, five assists and nine points in eight games.
Jiri Hudler and T.J. Brodie had multi-point games for the Flames as they each had two assists.
Both Tanguay and Lee Stempniak (in the third period to put the Flames up 3-2) scored on laser beam shots that easily beat Blue Jackets' goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky.
Goaltender Leland Irving got the win for the Flames as number one goalie Miikka Kiprusoff is injured with a MCL problem.
The Flames next play in Vancouver Saturday night to close out their three game road trip.
