Scott Darling made 26 saves for Carolina, which has lost four of five. Lee Stempniak scored with 4:31 remaining to avoid a shutout.

The Flames were faster and physical from the start.

Barely six minutes in, Curtis Lazar took the puck from his own blue line all the way to the front of the Carolina net, beating two defenders, but lost the puck before could get a shot off. The loose puck ended up right on Stajan's stick, and he fired a wrister past Darling for his first goal in 37 games dating to last season.

The Flames doubled their lead with 1:13 left in the first period. A huge hit by Micheak Ferland at center ice forced a Hurricanes turnover and resulted in a 3-on-2 Calgary rush, and Hamilton snapped home a one-timer to make it 2-0.
