CALGARY, Alberta — Marian Hossa’s controversial goal with 2:23 left in the third period lifted the Chicago Blackhawks to a 3-2 victory over the Calgary Flames on Friday night.
Artemi Panarin’s hard shot was deflected by Chad Johnson’s glove high in the air and as the puck came down behind him, Hossa knocked it in. While replays showed it might have been a high stick by Hossa, Flames coach Glen Gulutzan had used his time out earlier in the period and was unable to challenge the call.
Ryan Hartman and Brent Seabrook also scored for Chicago which has points in 12 of its last 13 (10-1-2) games. Corey Crawford stopped 28 shots.
Sam Bennett and Sean Monahan scored for Calgary, and Johnson had 21 saves.
