CALGARY, Alberta – Marian Hossa scored the tying goal with 2.3 seconds left in the third, Patrick Kane added a goal in regulation then had the shootout winner, and the Blackhawks earned a 3-2 win over the Calgary Flames on Saturday night.

Ray Emery made 45 saves for the Hawks (7-0-2), who stayed unbeaten in regulation.

Scoreless after two periods, Calgary outshot the Hawks 24-6 in the third period and looked as if it was going to hand the them their first regulation defeat when Jay Bouwmeester scored with 35 seconds remaining to put the Flames ahead 2-1.

However, the Hawks pulled Emery for an extra skater and, in a scramble around the Flames net in the final seconds, Hossa pounced on the puck and fired it over a fallen Miikka Kiprusoff to send the game into overtime.
