CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -- Joe Colborne scored the only goal of the shootout to give the Calgary Flames an improbable 4-3 come-from-behind win over the St. Louis Blues on Monday night.
Colborne took the first attempt in the shootout and beat Jaroslav Halak on a deke for his third goal on four attempts this season in the tiebreaker.
Reto Berra turned aside T.J. Oshie, Derek Roy and Magnus Paajarvi in the shootout to earn the win. Mark Giordano forced overtime by dramatically scoring the tying goal with five seconds left in the third period.
Patrick Berglund's holding penalty gave Calgary a power play with 1:37 left, and Flames coach Bob Hartley added more pop by pulling Berra for a 6-on-4 skating edge.
Jiri Hudler's long diagonal pass was hammered in from the faceoff dot by Giordano, who one-timed a blistering slap shot past Halak to send the sellout crowd into a frenzy.
Hudler and Mike Cammalleri also scored for Calgary (14-17-6), which kicked off a five-game homestand. The Flames snapped a three-game losing streak.
Kevin Shattenkirk, Jaden Schwartz and Paajarvi scored for the Blues (24-7-5), which took three out of four points in Alberta and are 5-1-2 in their last eight.
The Flames have battled injuries all season, and there were more announced on Monday. Left wing Curtis Glencross (high ankle sprain) and former Blues defenseman Kris Russell (sprained knee), will be out for an extended period after they were hurt at Pittsburgh on Saturday in the final stop of a five-game trip.
St. Louis scored the lone goal of the first period, just eight seconds into its first power play.
Off a faceoff win deep in the Flames end, the Blues worked the puck around. Brendan Morrow's nifty cross-ice backhanded pass landed on the stick of Shattenkirk, who broke in from the blue line and scored his fifth goal of the season into the open side.
Schwartz scored through a screen as the Blues took a 2-1 lead less than two minutes after Hudler tied it at 12:06.
Just 44 seconds later, the Blues increased their lead to two on a goal from their high-energy fourth line.
Berra's pass around the boards was intercepted by Adam Cracknell, who zipped a pass to Maxim Lapierre in the slot. Lapierre's shot was stopped, but Paajarvi corralled the rebound and stuffed in his third goal.
The Flames cut the deficit to 3-2 at 11:05 of the third when Paul Byron set up Cammalleri from behind the net for his team-leading 12th goal.
Berra made 32 saves to improve to 5-8-2. Halak stopped 26 stops and fell to 17-6-3.
NOTES: Glencross, who earlier missed 15 games with a knee injury, will be out for eight weeks. Russell will be sidelined 4-to-6 weeks. Taking Russell's spot on the Calgary blue line was Chris Breen. ... With Alex Steen (upper body) out for the Blues, 20-year-old Dmitrij Jaskin, recalled from Chicago (AHL), made his season debut. He played alongside Oshie and David Backes. ... Only Hudler, T.J. Brodie and Chris Butler have played in each of Calgary's 37 games.

TROY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri man has been sentenced to life plus 30 years in prison for killing his terminally ill wife.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 43-year-old Russell Scott Faria of Lincoln County was sentenced Monday. He was convicted in November of first-degree murder and armed criminal action.
Betsy Faria, was found stabbed to death on Dec. 27, 2011. She was battling liver cancer at the time.
At the sentencing hearing, her sister, Julie Swaney, said Betsy Faria had two life insurance policies, and her husband had been beneficiary on both. Swaney says her sister changed the beneficiary on one before she was killed, and planned to do so on the other.
Russell Faria's attorney, Joel Schwartz, says the case was built on conjecture, and he plans to appeal.
CHICAGO (AP) - A crush of health insurance shoppers in Illinois have been calling a telephone help line set up to answer their questions, as an important deadline looms for the nation's health law.
More than 1,600 people called the Get Covered Illinois Help Desk over the weekend. That's more than double the call volume from the previous weekend. The state's health insurance website saw more than 26,000 visitors over the weekend, an increase of 4,000 visitors from the weekend before.
Monday had been the deadline to sign up for consumers who wanted coverage upon the start of the new year.
But the Obama administration effectively extended that deadline for signing up for insurance by a day, giving people in 36 states, including Illinois, more time to select a plan.
