SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Juri Hudler scored the winning goal in the shootout, leading the Calgary Flames past the San Jose Sharks 6-5 on Thursday night.

After San Jose trailed 4-1 after one period, Joonas Donskoi and Dylan DeMelo scored early in the third period to give the Sharks a brief lead before Kris Russell tied it at 5 with just over 12 minutes left in regulation.

Sam Bennett and Mark Giordano scored within 1:06 of each other as the Flames scored four times in the first period. Sean Monahan and Mikeal Backlund also had goals for the Flames, who won their third straight while improving to 4-3-1 in their last eight road contests.

Tommy Wingels, Patrick Marleau and Logan Couture also scored for the Sharks, who were coming off a 2-2 road trip.

Calgary’s Karri Ramo stopped 29 of 34 shots before being helped off the ice with an apparent lower leg injury.
