Recap: Edmonton vs. Calgary

Edmonton, AB (SportsNetwork.com) - Sean Monahan scored Calgary's only goal in regulation and then potted the game-winner 1:50 into overtime, as the Flames edged the Edmonton Oilers, 2-1, on Saturday at Rexall Place.

With the extra session just under two minutes old, Calgary center Paul Byron won a battle along the boards behind the Edmonton net and quickly backhanded the disc to the low right circle for a cutting Monahan, who slid a shot through the five-hole of Ilya Bryzgalov to send the Flames to victory.

"In overtime [Byron] was just buzzing all over the puck and made a great pass to me, which fortunately enough, I was able to bury," Monahan said of his game-winner.

Reto Berra registered 21 saves for Calgary, which dropped a 2-0 decision to the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday in its first game following the Olympic break.

David Perron potted the lone Edmonton marker, while Bryzgalov gave up both goals on 30 shots for the Oilers, who have lost three straight games.

"We've still got to find more offense," Edmonton head coach Dallas Eakins said. "We'll go straight back to that in practice. Our top guys have to generate more."

Monahan netted his first of the night 10:15 into the opening frame, as he picked up a bouncing rebound in the slot before wheeling around and ripping a shot past Bryzgalov for a 1-0 lead.

Following a scoreless second stanza, Perron pulled Edmonton even 9:43 into the third when he won a battle on the left midboards and skated into the left circle before beating Berra high to the short-side to tie the tilt.

Neither team managed much from there, forcing the contest into an extra session.
