Flames Use Bonus Time To Clean Up The Oilers

Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports

The Flames ride Sean Monahan's two goal performance to set down the Oilers in the Battle of Alberta, Volume CCXVIII.

Sean Monahan scored twice, 51:35 apart to lead the Flames to a win over the Edmonton Oilers. He opened the scoring at the 10:15 mark of the first period with his 17th on a pass from behind the net from Joe Colborne. Mark Giordano earned the other assist on the play.

After a scoreless second period, The Oilers pulled even at 9:43 in the third as David Perron scored his 23rd marker of the campaign. It was Edmonton's first goal in over eight periods of regulation play (160:47), a period spanning over three weeks. The two teams ended 60 minutes of regulation knotted at one.

It didn't take the Flames long into the extra frame to close things up as Monahan scored his second of the night and 18th overall to earn Calgary their 23rd win of the season. Assists were awarded to Ladislav Smid and to Paul Byron.
