Mikael Backlund scored the winner early on in overtime to help Calgary get back in the series against Anaheim with a 4-3 win on Tuesday.
Backlund couldn't have picked a better time to score his first goal of the postseason with the Flames series hopes on the line. The game never would have gotten to extra frame if not for a late game tying goal by super rookie Johnny Gaudreau. The Flames also got goals from Brandon Bollig and Joe Colborne as their collective efforts on Tuesday got them right back in the series. For Backlund it was just his second point in nine playoff games. May 6 - 3:08 AM
