Last Flames Game

The Battle of Alberta was reignited Tuesday night as a part of the NHL exhibition games to tune up leading into the qualifier round. The Flames were actually the better of the two teams overall but a couple of lapses and a no-look goal from Connor McDavid led to a loss.

Fun Flames Facts…

  • The Calgary Flames have been beneficiaries of shootout domination with six wins in seven games.
  • The Flames had zero players nominated for an NHL award this year.

 

What FlamesNation Is Saying…

The Flames have a roster full of young, talented players: Gaudreau, Sean Monahan, Elias Lindholm, Mikael Backlund, Matthew Tkachuk, Dillon Dube, Andrew Mangiapane, Noah Hanifin, Rasmus Andersson… (Giordano and Milan Lucic aren’t young but they’re good.) If Bennett isn’t the only player that stands out, they’ll have a good chance of winning the series.
