Brown scored his third short-handed goal of the season backhanding in a rebound on a 2-on-1 with Nick Paul. Brown had intercepted Noah Hanifin’s pass in the defensive zone to start the rush.
Lindholm pulled the Flames even at 11:23 of the first period for his fourth goal and eighth point in his past six games.
Murray made the initial stop on Lindholm, but the puck trickled between the goaltender’s pads for him to shovel in on a second effort.
A Flames turnover on the offensive blue line and another along the boards in their own end led to Tkachuk’s goal at 9:50.
Tkachuk took Juuso Valimaki’s errant pass and roofed a wrist shot over Markstrom.
Calgary’s Brett Ritchie and Ottawa’s Josh Brown fought at the end of the first period.
