PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Flames just needed to get out of their own way.TJ Brodie scored 1 minute Buffalo Sabres Hoodies Authentic , 59 seconds into overtime after Matthew Tkachuk tied it with 4:17 left in regulation to lead Calgary to a 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday.Tkachuk assisted on the winner in the 3-on-3 extra session. Philadelphia’s Jordan Weal turned the puck over in the Flyers offensive zone to set up a 2-on-1 break. Tkachuk sent a cross-ice pass to Brodie, who beat goalie Carter Hart to lift the Pacific Division leaders to the win.“Not every game is going to be pretty and these are the games that make a difference at the end of the year,” Brodie said.Calgary committed five penalties, including two for too many men on the ice, resulting in four Philadelphia power plays. The Flames also gifted the Flyers a go-ahead goal in the third period when goalie David Rittich misplayed the puck way out in front of his crease.When it mattered, though, Calgary figured out how to do what it has been doing all season — win.“We settled in and found a way to get it done,” coach Bill Peters said. “That’s a greasy road win.”Johnny Gaudreau notched his 24th goal of the season for the Flames, whose 56 points are tops in the Western Conference.Travis Sanheim and Travis Konecny scored for Philadelphia, which dropped its season-worst sixth straight game. The Flyers are in last place in the Metropolitan Division; they entered tied with Los Angeles and Ottawa for the fewest points in the league.It has been a forgettable season for the Flyers, who already have replaced their general manager and coach.“It’s tough because we’re playing good hockey,” Konecny said. “It just seems like teams are just scoring on the one opportunity that they’re getting. It usually doesn’t go that way, but that’s just the way it’s going for us right now.”Tkachuk tied it with 4:17 left in regulation when he beat Hart past the right pad with a wrist shot from the slot.Konecny had given Philadelphia a third-period lead, taking advantage of a mistake by Rittich to put the Flyers ahead 2-1 at 5:57 of the period. With Philadelphia’s Claude Giroux applying pressure on defenseman Rasmus Andersson Buffalo Sabres Hats Authentic , Rittich came way out of his crease to play the puck.Konecny intercepted Rittich’s clearing attempt, and then fired a wrist shot from the left circle past the retreating Flames goalie for his 10th of the season.The victory was a sigh of relief for the Flames goalie.“I made a mistake that almost cost us the game, so I was happy,” he said.Asked if he spoke to Tkachuk after the tying goal, Rittich said, “Yeah. ‘Thanks bro, I love you.'”Gaudreau tied it at 1 with a pretty wrist shot from the right circle that whizzed over Hart’s left shoulder during 4-on-4 play in the second period.The 20-year-old Hart returned to the net after Michal Neuvirth suffered a lower-body injury in Philadelphia’s 5-3 home loss to Carolina on Thursday, continuing the Flyers goalie carousel.The rookie was solid, if not spectacular, and couldn’t be faulted for any of the goals.“I was seeing the puck,” he said. “I felt comfortable. I wasn’t overthinking things and just stuck to my game.”Hart, who made 29 saves, dropped to 2-4.Veteran journeyman Mike McKenna was signed on Friday to back up Hart, who was making his sixth career start. If McKenna dresses for the Flyers Custom Buffalo Sabres Jerseys , he would become the seventh goalie to suit up and that would tie an NHL record.Sanheim got the Flyers on the board with a power-play goal with 7:50 left in the first period. His pass, which was intended for Weal in front of the net, caromed off the skate of Brodie and over the right shoulder of Rittich.Rittich returned after missing the previous two games with a lower-body injury and made 32 saves.Notes: Gaudreau, a native of South Jersey and a Philadelphia Eagles fan, will attend Sunday’s Eagles-Bears NFL playoff game in Chicago with some teammates. … Flyers C Nolan Patrick was back in the lineup after sitting out the past four games with an upper-body injury. … The teams also went to overtime in their first meeting, a 6-5 home win by Calgary on Dec. 12. … The Flames have scored 63 third-period goals. They entered the game leading the league in that category.UP NEXTCalgary: At Chicago on Monday night.Philadelphia: Host St. Louis on Monday night. CALGARY, Alberta (AP) Henrik Lundqvist has put together a two-game stretch unlike any since goaltenders began wearing facemasks full-time.In fact, it’s possible that nobody in the NHL has ever worked this hard for back-to-back wins.Henrik Lundqvist became the first goalie to stop 50 or more shots in consecutive victories since the NHL began tracking saves in 1955, lifting New York over the Calgary Flames 3-1 on Friday night.Lundqvist tied a career high with 50 stops on his 36th birthday. He is only the third NHL goalie to post consecutive 50-save games, joining the Rangers’ Gump Worsley on Jan. 27 and 30, 1963, and Chicago’s Al Rollins on Oct. 9 and 15, 1955. Worsley lost both his 50-save games, and Rollins split his.”You want to feel like you’re making a difference out there. That’s why I’m here www.officialflames.com ,” Lundqvist said.No Rangers goalie had made 50 saves in a win since Mike Richter in 1996 before Lundqvist beat Vancouver 6-5 in overtime Wednesday night.”We kept them under 55 (shots) today, so we made his night a little lighter,” Rangers defenseman Marc Staal joked.Lundqvist’s best save left Mikael Backlund shaking his head in the opening minute of the second period. Lundqvist dropped his stick and acrobatically dived across the crease to get his blocker on what looked like an easy goal for the Flames’ center.Not bad for a well-worn goalie in his 797th career game.”I’m 1-0 as a 36-year-old,” quipped the veteran Swede, whose 430 career wins rank eighth on the career list.Recently acquired center Ryan Spooner led New York with a goal and an assist. The 26-year-old has one goal and six assists in three games since he was part of a package traded to the Rangers from Boston for Rick Nash. Spooner is the first in franchise history with six assists in his first three games with the team, and also the first Ranger with multipoint efforts in his first three games with the club, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.”It’s been great,” Spooner said. ”I just really want to help out and that’s what I’ve been trying to do.”Kevin Hayes and Pavel Buchnevich also scored for New York. The Ranger will try for a Western Canada sweep Saturday night when they play at Edmonton.Brett Kulak scored for Calgary, which has lost three straight and is falling back of the pack battling for the final playoff spots in the Western Conference.”It’s a matter of scoring right now. We haven’t put the puck in the net in the past three games,” Flames captain Mark Giordano said. ”When we get those chances, we’ve got to get some traffic and bear down.”The Flames threatened Lundqvist with a power play 27 seconds into the game, but the veteran goaltender was up to the task.The Rangers took a 1-0 lead shortly after. On a faceoff in the Flames end, Spooner slapped the puck directly on net off the draw. Rookie goaltender Jon Gillies stopped the high shot, but he couldn’t control the rebound Calgary Flames T-Shirts Authentic , and Hayes banged in the loose puck.After Lundqvist robbed Backlund, the Rangers promptly raced on an odd-man rush with Buchnevich, after being stopped on his initial chance, eventually poking the puck over the line.Spooner’s breakaway goal at 10:48 of the second made it 3-1, and that was more than enough for Lundqvist, who shut the door the rest of the way to improve to 25-21-5.Gillies had 24 stops to fall to 2-2-0. The Flames are 3-6-1 since the loss of veteran goaltender Mike Smith to a lower-body injury, which has left the crease to rookies Gillies and David Rittich.NOTES: Lundqvist is one of three goalies ever with 25 wins in 12 or more seasons, joining Martin Brodeur (15) and Patrick Roy (14). … Matthew Tkachuk had an assist, giving him 49 points, surpassing his total as a rookie. … Drew Shore made his debut for the Flames. He was acquired from Ottawa at the trade deadline. … The Rangers improved to 18-0-0 when leading after two periods. … Micheal Ferland (upper body) and Kris Versteeg (hip) both practiced on Friday, but wore no-contact jerseys. They’ve missed three and 43 games, respectively.UP NEXTRangers: Play at Edmonton on Saturday night.Flames: Open a three-game trip at Pittsburgh on Monday night.—
