Rene Bouque scored his second goal of the game in the final minute of overtime to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 3-2 win in National Hockey League action Saturday afternoon at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

The Flames’ home stand continues Monday when the Colorado Avalanche hit town.

Blue Jackets centre Artem Anisimov, on a giveaway by Kris Russell, potted the equalizer at 4:21 of the third period.

The Flames, who led 2-1 after 40 minutes, got goals from Sean Monahan, with his 29th, Jiri Hudler

In the first period, Monahan (from Hudler and Johnny Gaudreau) on the power play and Bourque exchanged goals.

Hudler, on a snappy feed from Monahan, re-established the Flames’ lead at 2:44 of the second period.

And even though the locals outshot the Blue Jackets 9-0 through the opening seven minutes of the period, they failed to improve their advantage.
