Video: Monahan scores in overtime to give Flames the win

Mar 2, 2014, 1:15 AM EDT

Sean Monahan opened the scoring and finished it for the Calgary Flames on Saturday.

The Flames’ 19-year-old rookie, and sixth overall pick in last year’s NHL Draft, scored the winning goal in overtime to lift Calgary to a 2-1 victory over their rivals from Alberta, the Edmonton Oilers. Monahan is now up to 18 goals on the season. According to a tweet from the NHL, Monahan is the youngest player in Flames history to score in overtime.

David Perron scored the lone goal for the Oilers, who ran the risk of being shut out on home ice for the second straight game coming out the Olympic break.

This one featured a scary moment in the first period, when Flames’ forward Kevin Westgarth fell hard to the ice after taking a punch to the face in a fight with Oilers’ forward Luke Gazdic. Westgarth left the game and did not return.

    Learned a cute tidbit on CBC HNIC After Hours: Scott Oake noted that colleague Kelly Hrudey was indirectly responsible for guest Ben Scrivens meeting the woman he married. Seems young Jenny was inspired by Hrudey’s goaltending with the Kings, learned to play hockey, and went off to Cornell to tend goal for the Big Red’s women’s team. There she met the men’s goalie Ben Scrivens, and the two goalies, um, scored big time.

    Johnny Hockey won’t be a Flame….teamed with Monahan would be unbelievable but he’s going to be a FA and going to the highest bidder (Boston)… Monahan is finally a hit when it comes to the draft for the Flames

      Still more than a year before he’s a free agent, if he doesn’t sign this summer (sources down there say he’ll sign as soon as his season is over and join Abbotsford for their playoff run) then the Flames will trade his rights to the highest bidder.
