CALGARY, Alberta (CBS / AP) — Matt Stajan scored 4:20 into overtime, and Jarome Iginla reached 30 goals as the Calgary Flames beat the San Jose Sharks 3-2 on Tuesday night in a pivotal Western Conference matchup.
In the final minute of overtime, the Flames came in on a 2-on-1 break and executed it perfectly. Blake Comeau sent a pass across to Stajan, who scored his fifth of the season into an open side.
Sven Baertschi also scored for the Flames (33-25-12), who have won four straight.
Logan Couture scored his 29th and 30th goals for San Jose (34-25-10). Despite having just one win in seven games (1-3-3), the Sharks have moved into eighth place in the Western Conference.
Calgary and Colorado are even with the Sharks at 78 points, but San Jose has one game in hand on Calgary and two on the Avalanche.
Couture tied it 1:22 into the third period as the Sharks’ third-ranked power play, after going 0-for-4 through the first two periods, converted with the extra man.
