Tkachuk's goal in 3rd gives Flames 2-1 win over Wild

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Once the rough stuff was out of the way, the Calgary Flames settled in and clamped down on the Minnesota Wild.

The surprise leaders of the Pacific Division, the Flames have proven this season to be feisty and flexible.

Matthew Tkachuk scored the go-ahead goal midway through the third period, backup goalie David Rittich made 34 saves, and the Flames hung on to beat the Wild 2-1 on Saturday.
