Atkinson’s overtime goal lifts Flyers 2-1 against Flames


Hayes’ first goal of the season tied the score at 14:27 in the second period. His initial shot deflected at Calgary’s Rasmus Andersson and came straight back to him. Hayes then shot the puck into the near side past Markström, who was out of position after the deflection.

Hayes has only played his second game of the season after missing the first 12 games with a lower body injury. It was also the first goal since his brother Jimmy passed away over the summer, and Hayes pointed to the sky after scoring and then to his heart.

Kylington opened the scoring with just under 10 minutes left in the first with his third of the season. Gaudreau conceded a pass out of the board to Kylington, whose point shot deflected Couturier’s legs and passed Hart’s right pad.

It was the 336th assist for Gaudreau, who tied Guy Chouinard and Paul Reinhart for sixth in Flames history. It was also his eighth point in six career games for Philadelphia, 30 minutes from where he grew up in Carneys Point, New Jersey.
