Calgary Flames End 4-Game Skid with 4-2 Win over Tampa Bay Lightning

The Calgary Flames ended their losing streak with a 4-2 triumph over Tampa Bay

The Calgary Flames snapped their four-game losing streak with an impressive 4-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning. Yegor Sharangovich extended his scoring streak to five games, contributing to the Flames' much-needed win. A.J. Greer, MacKenzie Weegar, and Connor Zary also found the back of the net for Calgary, while Jordan Oesterle provided two assists. Goaltender Dan Vladar made 31 saves to secure the win. On the other side, Brayden Point and Steven Stamkos scored for Tampa Bay, but it wasn't enough to overcome the Flames' dominant second period performance.

Calgary took control in the second period, netting three goals within the opening seven minutes. Greer, Weegar, and Sharangovich capitalized on their opportunities to give the Flames a commanding lead. Despite a late comeback attempt from the Lightning, with goals from Point and Stamkos in the third period, Zary sealed the victory for Calgary with a remarkable individual effort. The win comes as a relief for the Flames, who had been struggling in recent games. Meanwhile, Tampa Bay expressed disappointment with their road trip performance and acknowledged the need for improvement moving forward. The Flames will look to build on this momentum as they prepare to host the Florida Panthers, while the Lightning will aim to bounce back against the St. Louis Blues in their next matchup.
