Vancouver begins five-game road trip with come-from-behind victory over Calgary

A third-period rally helped the Vancouver Giants earn a comeback victory.

Matt Barberis tied the game with 71 seconds to play and the Giants scored three times in the shootout to defeat the Calgary Hitmen 5-4 on Monday afternoon at Calgary’s Scotiabank Saddledome.

Jack Flaman, Ty Ronning and James Malm each scored in the shootout round while goaltender David Tendeck stopped two of the four Calgary shooters.

The win improved Vancouver to 15-20-1-2.

Ronning and Benson had given the Giants a 2-0 lead with goals less than a minute apart in the second period but Jakob Stukel and Matteo Gennaro pulled the Hitmen even before intermission.

Gennaro and Beck Malenstyn gave the Roughnecks a 4-2 lead with goals in the early part of the third period.

Dylan Plouffe then pulled the Giants within a goal before Barberis forced overtime.

Tendeck made 34 saves for the win.

Vancouver will look for a second straight victory as they visit the Edmonton Oil Kings tonight (Wednesday) on the second game of a five-game road trip.

The team also plays Red Deer on Friday, Medicine Hat on Saturday and Kootenay on Sunday.

Vancouver is 8-2-0-0 against the Eastern Conference.
