The Chicago Blackhawks' three game win streak came to an end Sunday night as they were defeated 3-2 in overtime by the Calgary Flames. With the loss, the Blackhawks fall to 9-2-4 on the season, while the Flames move to 6-6-2. The Blackhawks dominated in mostly every area, but couldn't find a way to come out on top.

Here are some more notes from the game:
- The story of the game was Flames goaltender Reto Berra. Berra was unbelievable in his NHL debut, picking up his first win and stopping 42 of the 44 shots he faced.
- Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford also had a solid game, stopping 27 of 30 shots. The overtime goal wasn't his fault as a shot from the point deflected off of Andrew Shaw's shin pad.
- The Blackhawks won 45-29 in the face off circle, with Marcus Kruger and Jonathan Toews leading the way.
- The Flames did a nice job filling the gaps. They blocked 26 shots on defense, while the Blackhawks only blocked seven.
The Blackhawks head to the White House Monday where they will meet the President and be honored for winning the 2013 Stanley Cup. They don't play their next game until Wednesday night against the Winnipeg Jets.
