Flames launch a balanced offensive, which causes the Senators to bring an end to their three-game winning streak.
Although six separate goal-scorers took part, the Flames put an end to their two-game losing streak.
The Flames and Juuso Valimaki have been debating the value of consistency starts quite a bit recently.
The Finnish defenceman allowed his team's approach to go into action during Saturday afternoon's game at Canadian Tire Centre.
Valimaki tallied 4:00 into the game as a three-goal first period dealt the hometown Ottawa Senators a 6-3 loss.
He said, "It's kind of been thought about, but we haven't been able to make it happen." In order to do it, we must assume that we can do it, and that is how we can play.
It's imperative that we re-establish our momentum in the next game.
Elias Lindholm and Mikael Backlund netted the first two goals for the Flames, who eliminated the Senators' three-game winning streak. Additionally, Sean Monahan, Andrew Mangiapane, and Matthew Tkachuk scored for the Flames.
Drake Batherson, Colin White, and Brady Tkachuk answered for the Senators that finished last. With 15 points, the Ottawa (7-15-1) team was already stuck in the NHL basement.
With 22 points, the Calgary Flames climbed into a fourth-place tie with the Montreal Canadiens in the North Division. On Saturday night, the Canadiens were set to play the Winnipeg Jets.
In fast fashion, Johnny Gaudreau sped past two Ottawa players before slipping the puck to Juuse Valimaki for the one-timer. The Flames scored 37 seconds after that, when Backlund backhanded a rolling puck past cuffed goalkeeper Matt Murray.
It is probable that in order to inspire his teammates, Watson began an ensuing scrum by attacking Milan Lucic. Because of his 35-pound weight advantage, Lucic won the decision.
Calgary capitalized on a bad defensive play previous to the third goal. Josh Norris coughed the puck up deep in the corner, and Lindholm shot it into the empty net at 11:05.
"In the first place, we did not really respond," said Ottawa defenceman Thomas Chabot. One of those days, when things didn't go smoothly for us.
Batherson scored on the power play at 13:05, extending his goal-scoring run to five straight. From the faceoff marker, David Rittich was pummeled by the wrist shot by Dylan Strome.
The defensive error of another Senator cost the squad early in the second quarter when Chris Tierney coughed up the puck behind the goal line. Gaudreau fed it to Monahan, who gave it to Korbinian Holzer for the power-play score at 4:02.
Following 9:36 of shorthanded time, a Calgary goal was scored. Mangiapane diverted the puck before tapping in the rebound.
In 40 seconds, White grabbed a loose puck from the faceoff and deflected it past Rittich.
Tkachuk's goal was scored at 10:00 as Ottawa got a power play in the third quarter.
Calgary was outshot by Ottawa by a margin of 38-34.
Before being pulled in the third quarter, Murray saved 27 of 33 shots. Joey Daccord joined in relief and effectively saved all five shots he faced in his first career start.
Lukas Rittich recorded 31 saves for the Calgary Flames.
The Senators steamrolled the Fire on Thursday, crushing them 6-1. On Monday, the teams will return to the rink for the end of Ottawa's five-game homestand.
