Mike Cammalleri scored two goals and the Calgary Flames beat the Washington Capitals 5-2 on Saturday night.

With the Flames leading 3-2, Cammalleri scored an insurance goal for Calgary at 10:17 of the third period, firing a shot from deep in the corner that eluded goaltender Michal Neuvirth.

Until that point, Neuvirth had been perfect since entering the game at 12:50 of the first period. He was summoned when Cammalleri's first goal, a deflection of a point shot from Dennis Wideman, made it 3-1 Calgary and resulted in Capitals coach Adam Oates pulling starter Braden Holtby.

Calgary put the game away at 14:28 of the third on the first goal in seven games for Curtis Glencross.

Also scoring for Calgary (5-4-2) was Kris Russell and Jiri Hudler. The Flames were back at home after going 1-4-0 on a five-game road trip.
