Stars douse Flames in shootout

WILD CARD CHASE:The win puts Dallas six points behind Winnipeg for a wild-card spot, while the Oilers won after giving up a three-goal lead to beat Colorado


Ales Hemsky scored twice in regulation and Tyler Seguin had the only goal in the shootout as the Dallas Stars beat the Calgary Flames 4-3 on Wednesday for their seventh win in eight games.

Seguin got a shot past Karri Ramo in the first round of the shootout, and Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen was perfect against Joe Colborne, Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan to get the victory.

Jamie Benn also scored for Dallas, who pulled six points behind Winnipeg for the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference.

Dereky Engelland got his first two goals of the season, and Gaudreau also scored in regulation for Calgary. The Flames remained third in the Pacific Division, one point up on Los Angeles — who are outside of a playoff spot.

Philadelphia’s Claude Giroux, Wayne Simmonds, Ryan White and Michael Raffl all scored to lead the Philadelphia Flyers past the Chicago Blackhawks 4-1.

Giroux had his 22nd goal for his first even-strength score at home this season. Steve Mason was stout again for the Flyers, finishing with 34 saves.

Andrew Shaw scored for the Blackhawks.

Flyers fans gave Chicago defenseman Kimmo Timonen a standing ovation during a video tribute for the returning defenseman who helped lead Philadelphia to the 2010 Stanley Cup Final.

Edmonton recovered after giving up a three-goal lead as Derek Roy scored the tiebreaking goal midway through the third period of the Oilers’ 4-3 win over the Colorado Avalanche.

Martin Marincin, Jordan Eberle and Taylor Hall all scored in the first 9 minutes, 36 seconds of the game for the Oilers, who have won two of their past three games. Ben Scrivens stopped 31 shots.

Jarome Iginla and Alex Tanguay scored in the second period, and Ryan O’Reilly tied it early in the third for the Avalanche, who have lost three in a row and are 10 points out of playoff spot with just nine games remaining.

Semyon Varlamov allowed three goals on the first seven shots he faced before getting pulled in favor of Reto Berra, who finished with 26 saves.
