FLAMES 3, SHARKS 2: Matt Stajan scored at 4:20 of overtime and captain Jarome Iginla had a goal and an assist to lift host Calgary to its fourth straight win.

Stajan took a perfect pass from Blake Comeau on a 2-on-1 and fired a shot past Antti Niemi to hand San Jose its sixth loss in the last seven games.

Logan Couture scored for the second consecutive contest when he fired a snapshot past Miikka Kiprusoff 53 seconds into the game to make it 1-0 for the Sharks.

Calgary's Curtis Glencross received a five-minute boarding major and a game misconduct late in the first period when he hit Jason Demers hard from behind into the boards.

Sven Baertschi tied it for the Flames early in the second period and Iginla blasted a one-timer for his 30th goal with 1:33 remaining in the frame to give Calgary a 2-1 advantage.

Couture responded with his second goal of the game - and 30th of the season - 1:22 into the third period on the power play to knot the game at 2-2. Joe Thornton assisted on both Couture’s markers.
