Video: Flames win their eighth overtime game of the season

The Calgary Flames did it again last night. They won a game in overtime.

This time, their 3-on-3 victims were the Nashville Predators. The winning goal was scored by Kris Russell, on a pass by — who else? — Johnny Gaudreau.

According to the Calgary Herald, Gaudreau now has three goals and four assists in overtime this season.

Another amazing statistic? The Flames (14-14-2) have the most overtime/shootout victories in the NHL (nine), and the fewest regulation victories (five).

“These games, we don’t want them to go into overtime as much,” Gaudreau told the Herald. “If we start scoring on the power play, we might start winning in regulation.”

Calgary has the worst power play in the league.

Also, the worst penalty killing.

And so, just like last year, there are those who maintain the Flames’ winning ways can’t possibly continue.

But just like last year, it’ll be fun to see if the Flames can prove those people wrong.

Calgary’s next game is Thursday in Dallas.
