The Flames fell for the second time this season to the Montreal Canadiens by a score of 3-2. Mike Smith gave up the first AND last goal of this contest and dropped his record to 5-7-1. Here’s the rest of the best of what wasn’t covered in the recap or Rate The Flames.

Tibits

-PK KILLING IT: The Flames shut down both Canadiens PPO on the night, which means Calgary has killed 11 of their last 11 man down opportunities. They are now 22nd in the NHL in PK% at 77.7%.

-Chucking ‘Em In: Matthew Tkachuk pumped in 2 goals tonight, giving him 9 on the season. His 21 points leads the Flames and has him at 17th in the NHL. He’s currently the only Flames player in the top 20.

-Early Bird Gets The Goal: Mike Smith surrendered the game’s first goal and it’s been a trend for the veteran keeper. He’s given up the 1st maker in 4 of his last 5 starts.
