Sean Monahan scored the winning goal in the eighth round of a shootout and the Calgary Flames snapped their six-game losing streak with a 5-4 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday night.

Jiri Hudler had given Calgary a 4-3 lead with 3:26 remaining in regulation, but the Jets tied it on Bryan Little's with six seconds left.

With Winnipeg goalie Al Montoya on the bench for an extra attacker, the Jets swarmed goalie Reto Berra, and Little put a rebound into an open side of the net.

Montoya made 29 saves. Berra stopped 43 shots, including three in overtime.

Calgary's Michael Cammalleri scored his team-leading ninth goal of the season on the power play and added an assist. T.J. Brodie and Lance Bouma also scored.

Michael Frolik, Olli Jokinen and Dustin Byfuglien had goals for Winnipeg, and defenseman Grant Clitsome and Blake Wheeler both added a pair of assists.
