Mike Cammalleri broke a second-period tie and Joey MacDonald stopped 39 shots, helping the Calgary Flames snap a 13-game road winless streak with a 3-1 victory over the slumping Colorado Avalanche on Monday night.
Roman Cervenka also scored and Alex Tanguay added a short-handed goal to wrap up the win for the Flames in a game that featured the bottom two teams in the NHL. Before Monday, Calgary's last victory away from home was Feb. 17 at Dallas.
Brad Malone scored his first NHL goal for the last-place Avalanche, who have dropped five straight games.
MacDonald came up big late in the third period, stopping a point-blank backhanded shot by Matt Duchene and weathering back-to-back hooking penalties on Cervenka in the final 5 minutes.
Tanguay gave the Flames some breathing room when he skated in all alone and beat Jean-Sebastien Giguere over his right shoulder. Down two goals and up a skater with 2 minutes remaining, the Avs pulled Giguere but couldn't score.
There was a scary mom...
