Sean Monahan scored his 21st goal and then got the shootout winner Wednesday night as the surging Calgary Flames beat the Los Angeles Kings 4-3 for their fourth straight victory.

T.J. Galiardi and Matt Stajan also scored in regulation for Calgary, which has won seven of its last 10.

Jarret Stoll, Anze Kopitar and Jordan King scored for playoff-bound Los Angeles, which is locked into third spot in the Pacific Division. The Kings are 1-3-1 in their last five.

Tied 1-1 in the shootout after three attempts with Marian Gaborik scoring for Los Angeles and Jiri Hudler for Calgary, Monahan sent a shot past Jonathan Quick for his fourth shootout winner of the season. He also scored for the fifth time in eight attempts in the shootout.

Karri Ramo, who finished with 41 saves through overtime, then clinched the victory with a stop on Mike Richards.
