CALGARY, Alberta, April 2 (UPI) -- Chris Drury
scored the equalizer with 5:21 left in regulation Wednesday night as the Calgary Flames rallied for a 2-2 tie with the San Jose Sharks in a game between teams playing out the string.
Drury picked up a loose puck in the slot and put a turnaround slap shot through Evgeni Nabokov for his 22nd goal.
Martin Gelinas also scored for Calgary, which held a 31-19 advantage in shots but had to erase a pair of deficits before snapping a two-game skid.
The Flames failed to score on a power play in overtime and went none for eight with the man advantage. They entered the game with the second-worst power play in the league at 12.2 percent.
Patrick Marleau and Mark Smith scored for the Sharks, who are winless in their last eight road games (0-6-1-1). They also are 0-2-1 in the last three overall.
The teams remained tied for 13th in the Western Conference.
