Not like it was an offensive showcase at the Bridgestone Arena (how many times has that place changed names?), but it's two points and consecutive points for the Calgary Flames.  Rene Bourque scored 2:10 into overtime to supply the only offence in a 1-0 Calgary win as the Flames move above the .500 mark for the first time this season.
