Recap: Chicago vs. Calgary

Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Kris Russell scored the game-winner 1:32 into overtime to lead the Calgary Flames to a 3-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Mike Cammalleri and Curtis Glencross also scored for the Flames, who had dropped four of their last five games entering the contest. Reto Berra made 42 saves in his NHL debut.

Patrick Kane had one goal and one assist and Marian Hossa also lit the lamp for the Blackhawks, who had won three straight. Corey Crawford turned away 27 shots in the setback.
