Well if that wasn’t an entertaining version of the Battle Of Alberta we don’t know what is. Calgary rode the strong goaltending of David Rittich and more 3rd period magic to sink the Edmonton Oilers 4-2. Here’s the best of the rest of what wasn’t covered in the Rate The Flames/Recap.


-Can’t Stop The Magic: Calgary scored 3 more third period markers to down Edmonton. While the Flames as a team lead the NHL in 3rd period goals, it’s not surprising who the 2 players who lead the NHL in 3rd period goals are as well. Elias Lindholm and Sean Monahan are both tied for tops in the NHL with 7 third period tallies.

-Speaking Of Lindholm: We’ve reached the quarter point of the season and Ellias Lindholm has 21 points. His highest ever point total was 45 back in 2016-17. He’s only 5 goals away from tying his highest goal total of 16 from last season.

-We Got A First!: Derek Ryan scored his first goal as a member of the Calgary Flames last night at 16:23 of the second period.
