The Morning After Colorado: If You Want To Be A Goalie, Skip These Highlights

The Flames gave up 4 in the second, then scored 5 in the 3rd to get a 6-5 victory at home over the Avs.

Holy goals Batman! Calgary and Colorado combined for 11 goals on 63 shots as the Flames improbably walked away with a 6-5 victory over the Avalanche. Set aside 2 hours to watch the highlights and here’s the rest of the best of what wasn’t covered in the recap or Rate The Flames.

Tibits

-26: That’s how many 3rd period goals the Flames have scored so far this season. Coming into last night’s game they had 21, that 3rd period padded those stats and they are far and ahead the leaders in goals in the final frame.

-1st: Sigh. If you haven’t scored your first goal in the NHL yet, just call the Flames. Calgary surrendered goals to Vladislav Kamenev and Sheldon Dries, both the first of their respective careers.

-Gio Doin’ Gio Things: Mark Giordano is playing some of the best hockey of his NHL career this season in the defensive end of the ice. But his offence shouldn’t be forgotten either. Gio had a 3 point night against the Avalanche and is now 8th in points by NHL defencemen with 11.
