Sharks finally get a goal, but not a win

ALGARY, Alberta — Mark Giordano scored the eventual game-winning goal and Karri Ramo made 27 saves as the Calgary Flames extended their winning streak to four with a 4-1 win over the San Jose Sharks on Thursday.

Leading 1-0 after the first period, the Flames increased the lead to two goals at 3:38 of the second. Mikael Backlund’s shot missed the net but the puck caromed sharply off the end boards and out the other side. Giordano one-timed it in as Alex Stalock scrambled across.

The ninth goal of the season for the Flames captain extends his career-high scoring streak to eight games.

Lee Stempniak, rookie Sean Monahan also scored for Calgary and Jiri Hudler added an empty-net goal.

Eriah Hayes scored his first NHL goal for the Sharks, who have lost three straight games and scored only that one goal during the skid.

San Jose was held to eight shots in the first period but racked up 13 in the second, including multiple chances to score on Ramo.

The Sharks finally got on the scoreboard 46 seconds into the third.

After Chris Butler lost the puck in front of his own net, a quick passing sequence with Tommy Wingels and Patrick Marleau set up Hayes less than 15 feet away and he buried a quick shot over Ramo’s glove.

It was the 13th game for Hayes, who was recalled from the AHL on Jan. 4 and made his NHL debut the next day.

That goal ended a stretch of 160 minute, 36 second scoreless drought for the Sharks, who racked up 103 shots on goal before Hayes connected.

The Flames restored their two-goal cushion after Ladislav Smid’s shot went wide and bounced out the other side for Joe Colborne, who directed it in front for Monahan. The rookie redirected it out of the air for his team-leading 15th goal.

Stalock, who had only surrendered one goal on 65 shots in his previous three starts, got the nod in net for the Sharks, and finished with 26 stops.

Ramo got the start for the Flames for the fifth time in six games.

Calgary opened the scoring at 8:41 of the first period on a nice rush by Backlund. Darting down the wing, he got around Matt Irwin to get a shot on goal. Stalock stopped that one but Stempniak was right there to poke in the rebound.

Notes: Tyler Kennedy (lower body) did not play for San Jose. He was hurt Wednesday night in Edmonton … Since being converted to a forward, San Jose’s Brent Burns has 49 points (23 goals, 26 assists) in 66 games.
