DENVER -- Chris Owings has been in a little bit of an offensive funk. Mike Webster Jersey . Leave it to hitting friendly Coors Field to snap him right out of it. Leave it to this park to get the entire Arizona lineup revved up. Owings, Paul Goldschmidt and Miguel Montero homered as the Diamondbacks reached double-digits against the Colorado Rockies again, completing a sweep with a 12-7 win Thursday night. Arizona took all three games at Coors Field for the first time since April 2008. This series was quite an offensive display by the Diamondbacks, too, as they scored 32 runs and collected 48 hits over the three games. "(This) happens every other week here, doesnt it?" Bronson Arroyo said. "Doesnt usually happen to those guys, though. We just happened to put all the runs on the board this time." Even Arroyo (5-4) pitched differently in this park. He went with fastballs 60 per cent of the time -- something the 37-year-old usually doesnt do. But hey, this quirky park sometimes calls for an unorthodox approach. "I threw an offbeat game," said Arroyo, who allowed four runs and six hits in 6 1-3 innings. The Rockies were once again off their game as they lost their seventh straight. Its their longest skid since losing nine in a row late in the 2012 season. "We come to play every single day," said Troy Tulowitzki, who had a homer and a double. "Its just not happening right now. A night after the Diamondbacks put up 16 runs, they pounded Rockies starter Juan Nicasio (5-4). The right-hander struggled with his command, allowing a season-high seven runs in 5 1-3 innings. Manager Walt Weiss called a team meeting before the game, just so he could check in with his team during this horrendous stretch. He said there are "no magic words in this game or magic words for success." Is this rock bottom? "I dont know," Weiss said. "We have a game tomorrow. Well try to win a game tomorrow." The top five hitters in the Diamondbacks lineup -- Gerardo Parra, Owings, Goldschmidt, Montero and Martin Prado -- feasted on Rockies pitching, going a combined 13 for 24 with nine RBIs. "I know weve got a good hitting ball club. I know that," Montero said. "We showed it the last couple of games." Did they ever. According to the Diamondbacks, its just the second time the team has had back-to-back games with 18 or more hits. Its only the fifth time theyve scored 12 or more runs in two straight. "You hear stuff about Coors Field coming up through the minors leagues," said Owings, who finished 3 for 5 with four RBIs. "You watch a lot of games here, see a lot of runs scored. But I wouldnt say that plays into anything you do differently here. You hit the ball hard. "The ball might do some different things here." Owings had a two-run homer in the eighth that gave Arizona a 9-6 lead. The cushion was valuable at the time as Rockies pinch hitter Brandon Barnes hit an inside-the-park homer in the bottom of the inning, when the ball sailed over the head of centre fielder Ender Inciarte, hit off the base of the wall and caromed away. It was the 14th inside-the-park homer in Rockies history and first since Eric Young Jr. had one on Aug. 8, 2012, in Los Angeles. Arizona added to its lead in the ninth with three more runs. Inciarte ended the game by making a leaping catch at the wall on Wilin Rosarios deep drive. Arroyo had a 7-3 lead heading into the seventh inning, when he ran into trouble. A usually reliable bullpen struggled, too. The Rockies scored three times on RBI singles from Drew Stubbs, Michael Cuddyer and Corey Dickerson. With the bases loaded and two outs, Oliver Perez was brought in to face pinch hitter Justin Morneau, who grounded out to third to end the rally. "That was huge," Arroyo said. "He came in and gave us that one out we needed and really broke the game open for us." NOTES: The Diamondbacks open a three-game home series against Atlanta on Friday, with RHP Brandon McCarthy taking the mound. ... Colorado held a moment of silence for Don Zimmer, who died Wednesday at 83. Zimmer spent three seasons as a coach with the Rockies. ...

Louis Blues, having added Ryan Miller and Steve Ott from Buffalo, remain the No. Ben Roethlisberger Jersey . Levante, which had lost five straight including a Copa del Rey game last weekend, fell behind at its Ciutat de Valencia stadium when Ionut Sapanura opened the scoring for Elche in the 26th minute. http://www.footballsteelerstore.us/Black-Friday-Artie-Burns-Jersey/ . Braden Calverts Winnipeg rink rallied to defeat Italy 8-7. After giving up three points in the second end, Calvert came back with a single, then stole two more points in the next two ends to tie it up at the fifth-end break.CALGARY -- When youre on a roll, sometimes good things happen. Patrick Kane and the Chicago Blackhawks were proof of that on Wednesday night. Kane scored twice including the game-winner with 18 seconds left as the Blackhawks, aided by a few lucky bounces, scored three straight goals in the third period to win 3-2 over the Calgary Flames. Kanes team-leading 14th and 15th goals give him a career-high 12-game points streak. "Its nice to be on a streak like that, try to produce consistently. I think the biggest thing is just to try and go into every game with a clean slate and take it for what it is," Kane said. "You have the chance to play with good players, playing on a pretty hot power play right now, youre going to get some points." The game-winner came after Sven Baertschi lost the puck at the Flames blue-line. Niklas Hjalmarssons shot caromed sharply off the skate of Calgary defenceman Chris Butler and went straight to Kane at the side of the net. "It just came right to me. I tried to spin around and my first reaction was to try and pass but I ended up flipping it on net and lucky enough, it went in," Kane said. Similar good fortune was on his side when Kane ignited the comeback at 9:42 of the third. Dashing down the left wing, as he attempted to send a centring pass to Andrew Shaw in front, the puck deflected off the stick of Flames defenceman Kris Russell instead and beat a surprised Berra inside the goal post. "Maybe you think hes charmed because he makes a play like that and it goes in for him," said Chicago coach Joel Quenneville. "He does have the puck a lot and eventually hell get his turn and hell get his A-plus chance. Might not have the A-plus-plus chances tonight but he scored a couple." Fifty-six seconds later, Marian Hossa sent a pass into the slot that deflected off Patrick Sharps stick and bounced into the net to tie the game. "Sharps goes off his stick. I dont think he was even ready for it. It just bounces off his stick and rolls in. The last one, not a hard shot either," said Baertschi. "Its just one of those games." The wild finish erased what had been two-and-a-half solid periods from the Flames and goaltender Reto Berra. "Reto kept us in the game and he did everything he could then stuff like that happens?" said Baertschi. "There are nights like that where you work really hard for it and you think you deserve it but in the end you walk out with a kick in the butt." The league-leading Blackhawks (18-4-4) improve to 4-1-0 with two stops to go on their seven-game road trip. Roosevelt Nix Jersey. . "I think its a group thats familiar with the situation of being down going into the third period and weve been good at coming back and winning games or getting a point out of those games," said Kane. Matt Stajan and Sean Monahan with his ninth goal, tying him for the team lead with Mike Cammalleri, replied for Calgary (8-12-4). The Flames are 1-5-2 in their last eight games at home. Flames coach Bob Hartley said his team was aware all night of Chicagos quick strike ability. "That was something we were trying to guard against because number one, we know the firepower of that team. They basically did the same trick to the Vancouver Canucks a few night ago," Hartley said. "You make a few mistakes and they are so skilled they will make you pay for it and its too bad because I thought we played very well and we showed up to play." Antti Raanta finished with 20 saves in his first NHL start. Recalled from the minors on Nov. 17 when Nikolai Khabibulin went on injured reserve, he stopped 14-of-16 shots a week ago in Colorado in relief of Corey Crawford in his only previous appearance. "It was a pretty nice feeling. Didnt have to go to overtime or a shootout so thats the main thing," said 24-year-old Raanta. "I felt pretty good all game long. Had a couple good saves in the first period and I got that feeling of confidence. Of course, a couple goals just over the pad to the glove side. With those types of goals, you want to catch them for a highlight save but we got three goals and we take two points and thats the main thing." Berra made his 10th start in the last 11 games for the Flames. He finished with 27 saves to fall to 3-5-2. It was Berras second start against Chicago. In his memorable NHL debut on Nov. 3, he made 42 saves in a 3-2 overtime victory at the United Center. Notes: Hossa returned to the line-up after missing two games for personal reasons... Flames have placed LW TJ Galiardi (back) on injured reserve and recalled RW Max LW Max Reinhart from Abbotsford (AHL) ... Calgary D Mark Giordano (broken ankle) is back skating with the club although no return date is known. Teammate LW Curtis Glencross (knee) hopes to be back on the ice next week. The two veterans have missed 16 and nine games, respectively ... Flames were coming four days off. Other than the Olympic break, they will not go that long between games the rest of the season.
