LOS ANGELES, Calif. - At first glance, Dennis Wideman thought his overtime shot beat Jonathan Quick. By the time he got to the Flames' bench, the defenceman decided he was mistaken.

Wideman was thrilled to learn his first instinct had been correct and Calgary had just roared past the defending Stanley Cup champions in the standings.

Wideman scored 4:08 into overtime, and the Flames rallied past Los Angeles for their fourth straight victory, 2-1 Monday night.
