Calgary Flames 3 - Carolina Hurricanes 2 (OT)
The Flames have now finished up the pre-ASG portion of their schedule and they sit atop both the Pacific Division and the Western Conference. Calgary maintained their lead with a....um....let’s say....less than convincing win over the Carolina Hurricanes Tuesday night. The Flames gave up a late goal in the third and needed overtime to send Carolina home with a 3-2 OT loss. Here’s the rest of the best of what wasn’t covered in our recap.
-No Mas: Johnny Gaudreau came up empty on the score sheet last night stopping his career high point streak at 11 games.
-6th Place And Climbing- David Rittich secured his 19th win last night putting him in 6th place in the NHL for wins by a goalie. He’s 8 wins behind the current leader Marc-Andre Fleury.
-Not A Lot Of Shots: The Flames only had 25 shots on net which is something the Hurricanes specialize in. After last night’s game the Canes are tops in the NHL with the lowest amount of shots allowed per game at 28.0 SA/G.
