EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) Jiri Hudler scored 3:14 into overtime and the Calgary Flames defeated the Edmonton Oilers 2-1 on Saturday.

Edmonton tied the game with 10.1 seconds left to spoil rookie goalie Reto Berra's bid at his first career shutout.

With their goalie pulled, Oilers forward David Perron was able to send the puck behind the Calgary goalie from the side of the goal to Taylor Hall, who shoveled it into a wide-open net.

The Flames got the win in extra time as a shot from the point ticked off the stick of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and past defender Justin Schultz to Hudler on the doorstep, who scored his eighth of the season.

Lee Stempniak scored in regulation for the Flames, who have won three of their past four games.

The Oilers continue to have trouble gaining traction at home, slipping to 4-9-1 at Rexall Place.
