Backlund scores in OT to give Flames 3-2 win over Hurricanes

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) After fading down the stretch last season, the Calgary Flames are determined not to let it happen again.

Mikael Backlund scored 15 seconds into overtime Tuesday night to give the Flames a 3-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes. Calgary (33-13-5) heads into the All-Star break as the No. 1 team in the Western Conference, six points up on San Jose.

"It's good that we take the time early on to completely shut hockey off and just relax and then the closer we get to coming back, we've got to get the minds ready," Backlund said.
