Hudler, who scored his eighth of the season from Kris Russell, gave the Flames a much deserved two points in the standings. The Flames were leading the Oilers up until eleven seconds left in the contest when Calgary native Taylor Hall deadlocked the score at one goal apiece.
The Flames opened the scoring in the first period on a goal from Lee Stempniak and also got a strong performance from Reto Berra, who made 30 saves.
With the win, the Flames improve to 11-14-4, but are still 11 points back of the Phoenix Coyotes for a playoff spot in the Western Conference.
However the biggest news in the NHL on Saturday came in Boston, where Penguins' defenseman Brooks Orpik was viciously punched in the head by Bruins' veteran Shawn Thornton and again by Thornton when Orpik was down. Orpik was carried off on a stretcher, and is amazingly conscious. However expect Thornton to receive disciplinary action.
