CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — David Perron scored the go-ahead goal midway through the third period and the Edmonton Oilers rallied from a 2-0 third-period deficit to win 4-2 over the Calgary Flames on Saturday.

Perron had the puck behind the Flames net and banked it off the back of goaltender Reto Berra at 10:23. The goal came just over two minutes after another odd goal for the Oilers tied it.

Sam Gagner's shot deflected off Flames defenseman Dennis Wideman and fluttered high in the air. While Berra couldn't find it, Ales Hemsky batted in from out of midair for his first goal in 12 games.

Edmonton started its comeback at 3:41 when Jordan Eberle took a drop pass from Taylor Hall and ripped a shot over the blocker of Berra.

The three-goal barrage in a span of 6:42 came on four shots.

Boyd Gordon added an empty-net goal in the final minute.
