At Calgary, Alberta, Dustin Boyd scored his first NHL goal with 2:17 left, snapping a tie and carrying Calgary over Dallas.
Andrew Ference's slap shot from the blue line missed the net but caromed off the boards and out the other side where Boyd sent the puck in from a sharp angle.
Boyd was one of two forwards called up from Omaha of the AHL on Friday to take the place of Jarome Iginla (knee) and Chuck Kobasew (concussion), both hurt Thursday in a win over Florida.
