3 goals in 4 minutes was all it took to send the Flames to their 4 loss of the season.

The Canadiens just seemed to have another gear that the Flames were lacking. They were faster. More physical. Got some timely saves. And more importantly, they had a bigger number on the scoreboard than the Flames after 60 minutes. In reality, all it took was 4 of those 60 minutes as Montreal put 3 pucks in the net in 4:10 during the second period. Warm up the bus, head for the exits. Here’s the best of the rest of what wasn’t covered in the recap or Rate The Flames.


-500: T.J. Brodie played in the 500th game of his NHL career, all with the Calgary Flames. A nice milestone that was ruined by a retaliatory penalty in the second period that lead to a PPG. T.J. giveth, T.J. taketh.

-Speci.....Forget It: Calgary’s special teams were abysmal and it’s a disturbing trend. The Flames PP was 0-5 and the PK gave up 2 PPG in 5 chances. That’s not good enough and it needs to be better.

-Tip Of The Hat: Carey Price won his 289th game as a Montreal Canadien with the 3-2 victory over the Flames. He tied Montreal legend Patrick Roy for 2nd place all time in wins with the Canadiens.
