Flames’ Jooris scores OT goal in win over Oilers

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Josh Jooris scored 1:08 into overtime to lead the Calgary Flames to a wild 4-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday night.

Jooris, who missed the previous three games because of an upper-body injury, took a pass from Jiri Hudler and put a shot into the top corner behind goalie Ben Scrivens.

Joe Colborne scored his second and third goals of the season — all against the Oilers — for the Flames (21-15-3), and Lance Bouma also scored. Sean Monahan and Curtis Glencross chipped in with two assists each.

Making his sixth consecutive start for the Flames, Jonas Hiller made 17 saves to improve to 13-10-2.

Matt Fraser, Jordan Eberle and Andrew Ference scored for the Oilers (8-22-8). Ben Scrivens stopped 24 shots in the loss.

Hiller had to be sharp early as he made a chest save to turn aside Eberle’s shot following an odd-man rush by the Oilers that resulted from a turnover by T.J. Brodie.

The Flames didn’t register their first shot until Brandon Bollig tipped the puck 6:37 into the first period. Calgary built a 5-1 advantage in shots, but couldn’t get any pucks past Scrivens, who made 39 saves on Tuesday in the Oilers’ 3-2 shootout win at home over Los Angeles.

Edmonton opened the scoring with a power-play goal by Fraser, claimed off waivers from Boston on Tuesday, at 16:06 of the first. Hiller stopped the initial shot by David Perron before Fraser picked up the puck behind the net and banked banking it in off the goalie.

The Flames had a great chance to get even after Edmonton defenseman Keith Aulie was given a major penalty and was ejected for a hit to Matt Stajan’s head with 54.2 seconds left in the first period.

Scrivens stopped a slap shot by Mark Giordano and then the rebound attempt by Glencross as time expired in the first.

Eberle gave the Oilers a 2-0 lead at 10:28 of the second when he took a feed from Leon Draisaitl in the slot and lifted a shot over Hiller’s blocker and into the Calgary net.

Colborne pulled the Flames within a goal with a power-play tally at 18:01 of the second when he converted a feed from Monahan.

Bouma tied it at 4:28 of the third when he backhanded a shot from the slot past Scrivens.

Ference then regained the lead for the Oilers when he took a pass from Draisaitl and blasted a low shot from the point past Hiller.

Colborne then drove to the net and shoveled a shot through Scrivens’ legs at 11:55.

NOTES: Calgary is 17-8-3 on New Year’s Eve. … The Flames improved to 8-11-1 when trailing after two periods. … Mason Raymond was a healthy scratch after failing to record a point in his past 13 games with the Flames.
