After a successful road trip out East where the Flames won three out of four games, they returned to the cosy confines of the Scotiabank Saddledome for a date with the Colorado Avalanche.

Thanks to a strong performance from David Rittich, the Flames were able to overcome being outshout 35-16 to pick up a 5-3 victory.

The Flames got goals from Mikael Backlund, Mark Jankowski, Elias Lindholm, Michael Frolik, and Matthew Tkachuk in the victory while Mark Giordano had three assists. Calgary is now 28-13-4 on the year.
