Flames D Staffan Kronwall, the club's seventh defenseman who is playing because of the injury to Cory Sarich, scored the game-winning goal Tuesday against Montreal. It's his first career NHL tally. Tied at 3 entering the third, the deciding goal came at 2:16 when Kronwall's slapshot deflected off the stick of a Canadiens defenseman and past goaltender Jaroslav Halak. "I'm taking it one game at a time, I'm trying to improve. As long as the team keeps improving and I'm improving, we're all happy," said Kronwall, 26, whose only NHL experience entering this season was 55 games spread across three seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Washington Capitals.
