Gagner then one-timed an Eberle pass 30 seconds later for 14th goal.
Smyth made it 5-1 before the second period was out, and Hall connected against Henrik Karlsson, who replaced Kiprusoff to start the third, for a power-play goal at 17:29.
It was the first time in 14 games Calgary has allowed more than three goals and the first time in nine Edmonton had given up fewer than three.
When the game ended, fans booed and many threw seat cushions, which were given out as part of a promotion, onto the ice.
