The Sharks got just their third win all season when trailing after two periods. Chris Butler scored the lone goal for the Flames, who have lost six straight road games. Calgary had been 14-0-2 when leading after two periods but was unable to hold onto this lead in the latest road disappointment. Miikka Kiprusoff made 30 saves.
