Sven Baertschi had a goal and an assist and the Calgary Flames hurt the playoff hopes of the rival Edmonton Oilers with a 4-1 victory on Saturday.
Mikael Backlund, Dennis Wideman and Max Reinhart also scored for the Flames, who have won three of their past four. Calgary improved to just 5-13-2 on the road this season.
Lennart Petrell scored for the Oilers, who have lost five in a row after a five-game winning streak. The skid puts Edmonton's playoff hopes in peril as it is six points behind eighth place in the Western Conference with just seven games remaining.
Calgary scored just 26 seconds in on the first shot of the game.
Edmonton did a poor job clearing the puck, allowing Backlund to get the puck and ring it off the post and in behind goalie Nikolai Khabibulin.
