Avalanche Toast Flames 3-2 in OT

I'm not feeling terribly well so this is going to be pretty quick.

First Period
Sakic scores on a great feed by Wolski from behind the net to make it 1-0.

Theodore makes a good save on a Tanguay break.

Tanguay gets another break, catches Theodore a bit off-center and buries it far side. Sauer was caught playing far too aggressively.

Second Period
The Flames strike early as Lombardi takes advantage of his speed and Jeff Finger's carelessness to strip Finger and put the puck past Theodore.

Third Period
I grow weary of the Sportsnet announcers saying you need to go high on Theodore. You need to go high on most goaltenders in the league so just shut up.

Just as a Tanguay penalty is about to expire, Svatos pokes home a rebound to tie the game. Good, dirty goal. I love it.

Sakic and Smyth coast in on a 2-on-1. Sakic feeds a saucer to Smyth and he buries it.

Odds and Ends
- Sakic got his 1600th career point (100 against the Flames)
- Quenneville got his 400th win
