Sean Monahan scored with 2:43 left in the third period to lead the Calgary Flames to a 3-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Friday night.

Monahan scored in his fourth straight game when he took a cross-ice feed from Sven Baertschi and buried it behind Martin Brodeur.

The win extended Calgary's streak to five games without a regulation-time loss to begin a season. It is the first time since the Flames moved to Calgary in 1980 that the team has taken at least one point in each of its first five games.

Dennis Wideman and Mark Giordano also scored for Calgary. Jiri Hudler had two assists to extend his points streak to five games.

Adam Henrique and Dainius Zubrus scored for New Jersey. The Devils are 0-1-2 with two stops to go on their five-game road trip.
