The Jets were technically the home team in the neutral-site contest and they made themselves comfortable in the home of the CFL’s Saskatchewan Roughriders.

The accumulation of snow made ice conditions difficult at times but neither side was complaining, especially the Jets (6-6-0), who had had lost four of their previous five games.

Calgary fell to 6-5-2.

After almost 35 minutes of scoreless hockey, the Flames finally broke the ice on the power play with 5:13 left in the second. That’s when Johnny Gaudreau gathered the puck in the left slot and slipped a pass in front to Elias Lindholm, who knocked it into the open side past netminder Connor Hellebuyck.

The goal came mere seconds after Matthew Tkachuk held the puck in at the blue-line with a borderline high stick, but Winnipeg’s challenge was denied to confirm the Flames’ 1-0 lead.

It stayed that way until late in the third as Josh Morrissey took a feed at the point and blasted it over the glove a screened David Rittich with 4:13 left on the clock.

That set the stage for Little’s OT heroics. After the Flames killed a 4-on-3 power play, Kyle Connor led a 2-on-1 rush before sliding a pass over to Little for the game winner.

Winnipeg outshot Calgary 45-30.
