Jankowski helps lead Flames past Blues


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.

In a wild third pe­riod that saw Cal­gary take a lead twice only to see the Blues come back to tie it each time, the Flames fi­nally went in front for good at 14:29 when Ver­steeg’s shot off the wing beat Jake Allen.

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.
