The Calgary Flames try to string together back-to-back wins for only the second time this season as they play host on Wednesday night to the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Flames have not won two straight since Oct. 9-11, a pair of home wins over Montreal and New Jersey that were part of a 3-0-2 start. However, they are just 4-11-1 since and snapped a six-game slide with Mondays 5-4 shootout victory over the Winnipeg Jets. Calgary failed to hold four one-goal leads in the game, giving up an overtime- forcing tally with just six seconds left in regulation. However, Reto Berra was strong in overtime and stopped six of the eight skaters he faced in the shootout, while Joe Colborne, Lee Stempniak and Sean Monahan all tallied in the tiebreaker. Mike Cammalleri and T.J. Brodie had a goal and an assist in regulation, while Lance Bouma and Jiri Hudler also lit the lamp. Berra made 43 saves in total, with the rookie improving to 2-4-1 with a 3.66 goals against average and .889 save percentage in seven starts. Berra picked up both his first win and Calgarys first triumph since Nov. 3 in Chicago. "I think that theyre charging the fans to leave the building, because if that one was not exciting for them it sure was for me," said Calgary head coach Bob Hartley. "We made it interesting, we made it tough on us, but at the end we found a way to win, so big two points." The Flames next look to snap a five-game home losing streak and will play their next three in Calgary. While the Flames are coming off what Hartley saw as an exciting win, the Blue Jackets put together a forgettable performance on Tuesday night. Coming off its first victory in four games, Columbus was routed 7-0 by the hosting Edmonton Oilers. Sergei Bobrovsky allowed four goals on 18 shots before getting lifted just shy of the halfway mark of the second period. Curtis McElhinney allowed three goals on 14 shots in relief. Columbus had snapped an 0-0-3 slide with a victory in Ottawa on Sunday, but lost for the ninth time in the last 11 games overall. The Blue Jackets were shut out for a second time this season and managed a season-low 14 shots on goal. "Im just really, really disappointed," said Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards. "We werent ready to play the game. We werent ready to battle. We werent ready to do the things necessary to win. There was no desperation and no urgency. I dont know if we get too high on ourselves. You are going to have no success in this league, and it was proven tonight first-hand, if you arent ready and willing to battle, this is whats going to happen." Bobrovsky could get the call tonight in the third contest of a five-game road trip and is 1-1-2 with a 2.69 GAA in four previous meetings with the Flames. That includes a loss in Columbus on Oct. 4, yielding four goals on 30 shots. McElhinney beat Calgary the only other time he faced them, but that came back on Feb. 11, 2011 while with Anaheim despite giving up four goals on 25 shots. The Flames bested the Blue Jackets for the first time in the last three meetings with the win back on Oct. 4. Hudler and Curtis Glencross had third- period goals and Monahan scored in his first NHL game. Columbus has still won three straight in Calgary. . Their experience showed Tuesday as the No. 10 Badgers blunted a Saint Louis surge to win 63-57 and advance to face West Virginia in Wednesdays finals of the Cancun Challenge.

After that, the Royals shortstop decided to keep taking pitches until he saw a strike. Turns out he never got to see one. Escobar walked on four pitches with the bases loaded and two outs in the eighth inning Friday night, giving Kansas City a 2-1 victory over the Texas Rangers in the opener of an important three-game series between teams in the playoff race. "We had the utmost confidence he was going to get it done right there and he had a great at-bat," said Royals manager Ned Yost, who chose to stick with Escobar despite his .238 batting average and the fact that he had walked just 18 times in more than 600 plate appearances. Make that 19 times. "Im frustrated that I wasnt able to locate where I wanted to, but I understand thats part of the game," Feliz said. "I need to keep my head up and try it again tomorrow." The Rangers dropped a half-game behind the Indians, which beat Houston 2-1 in a rain-shortened game, for the second AL wild-card spot. The Royals were three games behind the leading Rays, who were locked in an extra-inning game with the Orioles. "These games are all going to be like this," said Yost, whose Royals (81-72) are already assured of their first non-losing season since 2003. "Theyre all going to be nail-biters. Theyre all going to be close." This one was so close the Rangers and Royals scored matching runs in the second inning, and then started tossing up zeros the rest of the way. The Royals finally broke through when Lorenzo Cain and Mike Moustakas hit consecutive two-out singles off the Rangers Jason Frasor (4-3) in the eighth. Pinch-hitter David Lough drew a walk on a full-count pitch, and Rangers manager Ron Washington brought in Feliz. He promptly walked Escobar as a crowd of 30,000 roared. Luke Hochevar (5-2) earned the win in relief of Ervin Santana, who allowed one run on five hits in 7 1-3 innings. Greg Holland worked the ninth for his 44th save. "It stinks when you get taken out and youve got to rely on someone else. Its hard to sit there and watch," Frasor said.dddddddddddd "Its a tough spot for Neftali." The Rangers actually jumped out to an early lead when Adrian Beltre, whose .374 average coming into the game was the best of any current player at Kauffman Stadium, roped a single to lead off the second. It was followed by a double by A.J. Pierzynski for a 1-0 advantage. The Royals answered in the bottom half when Salvador Perez led off with a double and Justin Maxwell, getting the start in right field, hit a two-out double to tie the game. Kansas City kept wasting chances in the early innings, though. Billy Butler grounded into a double play to end the first, and Moustakas grounded into another in the second. The Royals worked back-to-back walks in the fourth before Escobar flied out to centre field to end yet another scoring threat. The most egregious mistake came in the sixth, when Maxwell walked and Escobar was hit by a pitch from Rangers starter Martin Perez. Maxwell took off for third base with Alex Gordon at the plate, and he was easily thrown out by catcher Geovany Soto to end the inning. Asked whether he was running on his own, Yost replied: "Yeah." Good idea? "Nope." None of those jams was as tight as the one Santana worked out of in the fifth. After retiring the first two batters, David Murphy doubled, Leonys Martin singled and Ian Kinsler drew a walk to load the bases. Santana recovered to strike out Elvis Andrus. The Rangers had another opportunity in the eighth, but Hochever got Andrus to fly out to left and Alex Rios to ground out to first to leave Kinsler standing on first base. "Every game is so big, and thats what makes it fun," Hochevar said. "The intensity, the electricity in the ballpark that weve had during this push, its been awesome."
