CALGARY, Alberta -- Stopped twice on dangerous chances earlier, Michael Frolik wasnt about to let Mike Smith deny him a third time.Frolik scored 49 seconds into overtime to give the Calgary Flames a 2-1 win over the Arizona Coyotes on Wednesday night.Frolik stole the puck from Brad Richardson after a faceoff in the Flames end and skated in at top speed and ripped a shot inside the post on Coyotes goalie Mike Smith for his team-leading sixth of the season.I saw a little bit more space outside to maybe go to the backhand, Frolik said, but last second I saw a guy coming across so I just tried to sht it glove side and it went in.After a scoreless first period, Frolik had a great chance in the opening minute of the second but Smith jabbed out a pad to deny him from in close. Five minutes later, Smith throw up his glove and stabbed his snap shot from 20 feet out.Sometimes its frustrating when you have chances like that and it doesnt go in, Frolik said. But I just try not to think about it and just keep going and try to do a little better on the next shot.Matthew Tkachuk scored in regulation for Calgary, which snapped a three-game home skid. Chad Johnson started for the second straight night and finished with 20 saves.Tobias Rieder scored for Arizona and Smith, back after missing 12 games with a knee injury, stopped 22 shots.Rieder gave the Coyotes the lead with 18 seconds remaining in the second period as he pounced on the rebound of Justin Martinks shot and buried it behind Johnson.Were turning the puck over t much and bringing trouble on ourselves, not generating very much and turnovers are making us play t much in our own end, Arizona coach Dave Tippett said.Calgary, limited to 13 shots through the first 40 minutes, tied it at 6:40 of the third as Tkachuk fired a shot from a sharp angle just above the goal line under the crossbar for his fourth.Any time a goal like that goes in is deflating for the whole team. Thats on me, Smith said. It could have been a 1-0 game and were feeling a lot different coming into the locker rm tonight.Flames coach Glen Gulutzan continues to be impressed by the 18-year-old Tkachuk.It was one heck of a shot, Gulutzan said. There wasnt any rm there. He made a big play. Hed been working all night, like he usually does. Im happy for him.The Flames controlled play ijn the third but couldnt get a go-ahead goal. Among Smiths stops in the period was a stick save on Dennis Wideman and a sharp pad stop on Troy Brouwer.After an uneventful and scoreless first period, Calgary went to the attack to begin the second. On the opening shift, Tkachuk shot wide on a partial breakaway, Smith jabbed out a pad to deny Frolik from in-tight and TJ Brodies wrist shot from the low slot was turned aside.Five minutes later, Frolik had another dangerous chance from in front only to be thwarted again, this time Smith throwing up his glove to stab Froliks snap shot from 20 feet out.It was the first game in what will be an extended stretch for Calgary without leading scorer Johnny Gaudreau, who underwent finger surgery on Wednesday after getting injured Tuesday night in Minnesota.Every guy recognizes that we lost a really gd player and now collectively, we have to play a certain way to get ourselves in a position to get points in this league, Gulutzan said. Its certainly hurt us as a hockey club but we lk at it as something we can rally around and try to find a true identity here.Sam Bennett tk his spot on the top line with Sean Monahan and Brouwer.Game notesLinden Vey was inserted into the forward spot opened up by Gaudreaus injury. ...
