The unlikely duo of Cory Sarich and Steve Staios scored just over two minutes apart in the third period
and sent the surging Calgary Flames to a 4-2 victory over the Dallas Stars on Wednesday night.
Sarich, a defenseman, gave Calgary the lead at 2:35 with his third goal of the season, a snap shot into the top corner from just inside the blue line.
Then, with the Flames short handed, Staios jumped up to join Rene Bourque on a rush, took Bourque's pas and fired a long slap shot past Kari Lehtonen for his second goal.
Olli Jokinen and Tom Kostopolous also scored for Calgary, which has used a 10-1-2 run to move into eighth place in the Western Conference - one point ahead of Los Angeles.
