Steve Begin couldn't recall scoring a strangers pair of goals.
Begin scored two goals in the third period, and the Calgary Flames held on to hand the playoff-hopeful Detroit Red Wings a 3-2 loss on Wednesday night.
''We always say when you work hard, things somehow (are) going to turn for you,'' Begin said. ''I guess it happened tonight not once, but twice.''
Begin took advantage of a pair of blunders by goalie Jimmy Howard to score his third and fourth goals of the season.
''The guys think I cut a deal with the goalie on the other side,'' Begin said. ''Two goals, two similar ones. I can't really tell you what happened. I was just chasing the puck and it ended up on my stick. It's always good to get those goals.''
Lee Stempniak also scored for the Flames (17-22-4), who won all three games against the Red Wings this season.
Gustav Nyquist and Johan Franzen scored for the Red Wings (20-16-7), who are 2-2-2 in their past six games.
