Defenseman Dennis Wideman scored at 4:08 of overtime to give the Calgary Flames a 2-1 upset victory over the Kings in Los Angeles Monday night.

It was Wideman's 12th goal of the season and sixth shot of the night. No player in the game fired more shots on net than Wideman. The Flames' other goal also was dramatic. It was scored by Sean Monahan, his 14th of the season, and tied the game at 1-1 at 13:55 of the third period. Neither team found the net in the first two periods.

Dennis Wideman picked up two assists in Calgary's 4-1 win over Arizona on Thursday.

His two helpers won't make it to anyone's highlight reel but the pair does give him 15 assists and 25 points on the season. Despite ranking 20th in the NHL among defenseman in points with 25, Wideman actually ranks third on his own team among defensemen behind TJ Brodie (29) and Mark Giordano (37).

Dennis Wideman picked up two assists in Monday's big 4-3 win over LA on Monday night.

Wideman wasn't a big factor in either goal he tallied a secondary assist in, but they count just the same. He now has 11 assists and 21 points this season, and yet is third on his own team among defenders.

Dennis Wideman popped another two goals on Thursday night, becoming the first to reach ten from the blueline.

Wideman beat Max Talbot to the far post and tipped-in Johnny Gaudreau's sweet dish to open the scoring early in the second. Later, he tied the game with 77 seconds to go on the short-side through multiple bodies as Varly shifted to the middle to play the percentages. He now has 10 goals and 17 points this season, and in case you're wondering, Wideman's career highs came in 2008-09 with Boston when he scored 13 goals and 50 points.

The Calgary trio of defensemen continue to score at a tremendous pace.

While most poolies are well aware of the season's that Mark Giordano and T.J. Brodie are having as they are first and second in NHL scoring among defensemen with 25 and 21 points respectively, it's Dennis Wideman who leads all blueliners with eight goals. All three chipped in with points on Saturday as Brodie scored while Giordano and Wideman with his fifth, drew assists. The troika all have eight power play points as well as the Flames have been boosted by the play of the three.

Dennis Wideman scored a goal in Thursday's game against Chicago.

Wideman now has three goals in his last two contests. That brings him up to eight markers and 12 points in 20 games this season. His career-high is 13 goals, so he certainly has a chance of setting a new personal best.

Dennis Wideman scored twice in the Flames 4-3 SO win over Anaheim on Tuesday.

The goals were the veterans’ sixth and seventh of the season and came back-to-back in the third period of a whale of a game against a good Ducks team. Jiri Hudler scored the other goal for the Flames who are the leaders in the NHL when it comes to third period scoring. Markus Granlund stayed hot in picking up two assists in the win as well.

Dennis Wideman lit the lamp for the Flames, but they still lost to the Capitals on Saturday night 3-1.

Wideman is on fire, with goals in four straight games, to give him five goals and six points on the year. While he is an offensive defenseman -- he recorded his 300th career point -- he won’t be shooting 31 percent for the entire season. Around 15 goals and 45 points is certainly possible with such a hot start. Kris Russell and Jiri Hudler got the assists. Brandon Bollig had 14 penalty minutes, while Curtis Glencross picked up 12.

Dennis Wideman has gotten back on Flames head coach Bob Hartley's good side.

Hartley surprised a lot of people when he decided to make Wideman a healthy scratch a couple weeks back. Wideman has been hot lately though with three goals and four points in four games. "Wides has been unbelievable," Hartley said. "He's playing great. He's jumping in the play. He's generating some good offence while playing good defense, and that's what we need."

Dennis Wideman scored the lone goal for the Flames in a 2-1 OT loss to the Lightning on Tuesday night.

Wideman opened the scoring for both teams on an early power-play for the Flames in this contest. The veteran d-man potted a one-timer opportunity set up by the whiz kid rookie Johnny Gaudreau. Kris Russell also picked up a helper on what would be the lone goal of the night for Calgary.

Dennis Wideman has returned to the Flames' lineup.

Wideman was a healthy scratch Thursday night. He had 21 points in 46 games last year. Raphael Diaz will take a seat.

Calgary Flames coach Bob Hartley said Dennis Wideman was scratch on Thursday at his discretion and not due to an injury.

Just two games into the season and Hartley is already making statements. It worked though as Calgary went on to earn a 5-2 victory over Edmonton, so it will be interesting to see if Hartley immediately puts Wideman back into the lineup.

Dennis Wideman will surprisingly be scratched for the Flames on Thursday night.

He posted a minus-1 rating in 16:30 of ice time in Calgary's 4-2 loss to Vancouver in Wednesday's regular season opener. Wideman may have been banged up in the contest, but for now we'll assume he's healthy enough to play and this is a coach's decision.

Dennis Wideman is looking to hit the ground running after a disappointing season in 2013-14. To that end, he assisted on Sean Monahan's ripper of a snapshot in the third.

Wideman sent a cross-ice blue-line to blue-line pass to lead Paul Byron, who'd give Monahan the drop-pass before the goal. It was a thing of beauty start to finish. Wideman led the team in ice time with 23:02, including 5:36 on the powerplay and 2:30 on the kill.
