Chicago Blackhawks rally late but fall to Calgary Flames 3-2 in overtime

Corey Crawford got his first back-to-back start when the Chicago Blackhawks hosted the Calgary Flames on Sunday night.

Crawford ended the night with the loss when Kris Russell scored in overtime to give the Flames a 3-2 victory, their first victory in 11 attempts against the Hawks. Mike Cammalleri and Curtis Glencross also scored for the Flames.

Patrick Kane had a goal and an assist and Marian Hossa also found the back of the net as the Hawks’ three-game winning streak was snapped.

After a scoreless first the Flames got a chance to open the scoring on a penalty shot. Hossa pulled T.J. Galiardi down and received a penalty shot, which he shot wide of the net.

Kane put the opening tally on the board when he ripped a shot from the left-point past Reto Berra for a 1-0 Hawks lead. Berra made his NHL debut in goal and was Kane’s teammate with EHC Biel-Bienne in Switzerland during the NHL lockout last season.

Seconds later Cammalleri deflected a shot past Crawford to tie it before Glencross put the Flames up 2-1.

With 6:20 left in regulation Kris Butler was sent off for holding and Matt Stajan was also sent to the box for covering the puck, giving the Hawks a 5-on-3. Kane sent a feed to Hossa, who rocketed a one-timer past Berra to send it to overtime.

The Flames had lost four of their five since their captain, defenseman Mark Giordano went down with a broken foot.

The Hawks will travel to Washington to visit President Obama at the White House for a ceremony on Monday starting at 1:10 p.m. CT.
