Mark Jankowski had two goals and an assist and Kris Versteeg scored the winner as the Calgary Flames beat the St. Louis Blues 74 on Monday.

Sam Bennett scored his first of the season for Calgary (10-7-0), Micheal Ferland had his fourth goal in as many games and Johnny Gaudreau and Michael Frolik added emptynetter as the Flames finished 5-2-0 on their season-long homestand. They open a sixgame road trip on Wednesday in Detroit.
Gaudreau had two points to extend his point streak to seven games (five goals, seven assists).
Vladimir Tarasenko scored a pair for St. Louis (13-5-1) and Jaden Schwartz and Alexander Steen also scored.
