NHL Standings

Thursday night’s Flames and Lightning game more than lived up to the hype. These two NHL heavyweights traded punches (figurative) all night long and in the end Tampa just had one more punch than Calgary. Here’s the rest of the best of what wasn’t covered in our recap or Rate The Flames.


-Point Producers: By securing a point in the shoot out loss the Flames now have points in 11 of their last 14 games.

-Johnny Hockeying: Speaking of points, Johnny Gaudreau’s two point night gives him 28 points in his last 16 games.

-PK Dominant: Calgary shut down the Lightning on all 4 of their power plays on Thursday night. Since giving up 1 PPG in the 6-5 OTW over Philly, Calgary has killed 16 straight power plays in their last four games.
