CALGARY - Reto Berra made the kind of save that deserved to be rewarded with a win.

It didnít happen.

Instead of rewarding their netminder with an all-out-every-shift performance after an early stop that will be in contention for save of the season, the Calgary Flames could only manage a 20-minute effort in a 2-1 overtime loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on a long, cold Wednesday night.

The Flames havenít won consecutive games for more than a month.

On a night meant for hibernating, the Flames spent two periods looking yet again like a team ready to follow the bears to the caves for a long winter.

Even a potential save-of-season from Berra in the early going couldnít change it.

But what a save it was.
