VANCOUVER Calgary Flames T-Shirts Authentic , British Columbia (AP) — Vancouver Canucks center Bo Horvat credited veteran goalie Jacob Markstrom with Saturday’s win over the Calgary Flames.Markstrom stopped 44 of 47 shots and put up three more saves in the shootout, leading Vancouver to a 4-3 victory over the Flames.“We couldn’t have done it without Marky tonight,” Horvat said. “He was absolutely sensational, made key saves at unbelievable times of the hockey game and he was a stud in the shootout again. So big credit to him.”Several of his teammates agreed.“I think (the Flames) were the better team overall, but Marky played really good and kept us in the game,” said Vancouver’s star rookie, Elias Pettersson, who had a pair of assists and put away the shootout winner.A pair of the goalie’s most memorable stops came against one of the league’s top talents.Johnny Gaudreau streaked into the Canucks’ end on a breakaway with just five seconds to go in the first period and released a blistering shot, but Markstrom snatched the puck out of the air.He repeated the feat late in the third, once again robbing the Flames winger of a goal with a stunning glove save.“Man Calgary Flames Hoodies Authentic , (Markstrom) was dialed in tonight. What am I going to say? He was awesome tonight,” Canucks coach Travis Green said.Markstrom was humble about stopping Gaudreau, who’s in the race for the title of the league’s top scorer with 75 points this season.“It was one of those things where you’re just trying to make the read and I got the right read and I was fortunate enough to stop it,” Markstrom said.He credited his teammates with playing hard and making sure he was able to keep track of the puck throughout the game.“They really pinned us down in the second,” he said. “But I thought everybody really played for each other. We stood up good when they had pressure coming toward the net.”Horvat, Josh Leivo and Brock Boeser scored for Vancouver in regulation.Sam Bennett, Elias Lindholm and Andrew Mangiapane scored for Calgary.Mangiapane’s second-period goal was his first NHL goal.“It was definitely nice. It was a little longer than I would have liked, but I felt like our line was hemming them in there in the second period and (Noah Hanifin) picked it up and made a nice pass over to me,” said Mangiapane, who made his NHL debut in early December. “So it was definitely a good feeling and nice to get it out of the way.”The goal came when the Flames had Markstrom under siege Calgary Flames Hats Authentic , outshooting the Canucks 17-1.“The bench was electric when he scored and that was a wonderful shift by the (Derek) Ryan line there. They really worked hard and hemmed them in and had a quality shift,” Flames coach Bill Peters said. “That’s a proud moment, something he will never forget.”David Rittich had 22 saves for the Flames and made two stops in the shootout.The victory snapped a three-game losing skid for the Canucks. It was the second straight loss for the Flames, who hadn’t lost back-to-back games since Dec. 22.But Peters said there was a lot to like about how his team played Saturday.“Definitely had some good looks. There’s not a lot of big changes to be made. Power play needed to get one. We had our opportunities for sure. There was some good looks we have to cash in,” he said.Vancouver’s win keeps the team firmly entrenched in a battled for a Western Conference wild-card spot.The squad knows that every game is crucial going forward, Markstrom said.“Points are going to be hard to come by,” he said. “We’ve got to battle hard for 65-plus minutes. And we did it tonight. Which is a nice win.”NOTES: The Canucks confirmed on Saturday that left-winger Sven Baertschi will be out of the lineup indefinitely. Coach Travis Green said he is suffering from post-concussion syndrome. The team is also missing backup goalie Thatcher Demko, who is out with a knee sprain, and defenseman Alex Edler, who has a concussion. … Calgary’s James Neal was missing some teeth after Saturday’s contest.

Biega was handed a four-minute penalty for the play.UP NEXTFlames: At Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday.Canucks: Host San Jose Sharks on Monday. PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Their own version of the “double-doink” helped James van Riemsdyk and the Flyers end a long losing streak.Van Riemsdyk had a goal and an assist Custom Calgary Flames Jerseys , Carter Hart stopped 37 shots and the Flyers beat the Dallas Stars 2-1 on Thursday night to halt an eight-game skid.Travis Konecny also scored for the Flyers, who entered with a league-worst 36 points.Van Riemsdyk made it 2-0 with 11:09 left in the second when his deflection of Claude Giroux’s shot went off goalie Anton Khudobin’s left skate, then defenseman Esa Lindell’s right skate before crossing the goal line. The goal was reminiscent of Bears kicker Cody Parkey’s 43-yard last-second field goal miss, dubbed the “double-doink” in Philadelphia, in the Eagles’ 16-15 win over Chicago in an NFC wild-card playoff game Sunday.“It’s a funny game,” van Riemsdyk said. “Sometimes you don’t get those bounces. We certainly got some of those bounces tonight.”Van Riemsdyk, who the Flyers signed to a five-year, $35 million contract this offseason, was bumped up to the first line after playing on the fourth line in Philadelphia’s 5-3 loss at Washington on Tuesday. He recorded his seventh goal in his 28th contest after setting a career high with 36 goals last season with the Toronto Maple Leafs.“It was a great job being at the net,” interim coach Scott Gordon said. “(Van Riemsdyk) is a proud player. I know what he’s capable of. He has great offensive skills and great presence at the net front.”Jamie Benn scored for Dallas www.officialhurricanes.com , which lost for the third time in eight games. Tyler Seguin had an assist to extend his point streak to seven games. He has at least one point in every contest since he and Benn were harshly criticized by CEO Jim Lites on Dec. 28.“Not enough players having an impact with the puck or without the puck,” Stars coach Jim Montgomery said. “We didn’t have desperation until the third period.”Benn ended Hart’s bid for his first career shutout when his wrist shot from the slot with 2:51 left went off the goalie’s glove. Other than that, the Flyers rookie was stellar.The 20-year-old Hart made his eighth start and improved to 3-4-1. He was solid all night and made a pair of key saves in the third period, stopping John Klingberg’s shot through a screen with nine minutes remaining and denying Alexander Radulov’s wrist shot from the hash marks about a minute later.Hart is one of the NHL record-tying seven goalies Philadelphia has used this season.“He’s been unbelievable,” Konecny said of Hart. “We feel bad for him. He’s stood on his head a bunch of times for us. Every time he’s been in there, he’s given us a good opportunity.”The Flyers improved to 4-7-2 under Gordon and got their fourth win in 17 games.The Flyers appeared to retake a two-goal lead 1:48 later, but Jakub Voracek’s apparent score was waived off after a video review due to goalie interference.NOTES: The Stars return home Saturday to begin a six-game homestand against St. Louis. Dallas’ next road game isn’t until Feb. 2 at Nashville. … Dallas’ streak of consecutive games with a power-play goal ended at six. … The teams will play again in the second and final game of the season series on April 2 in Dallas. … Seguin has 11 points (six goals, five assists) during his streak.UP NEXTDallas: Open six-game homestand on Saturday vs. St. Louis.Philadelphia: At New Jersey on Saturday.
