The Morning After
-Tip Of The Hat: Last night Jimmy Howard got the call for the Red Wings between the pipes. So what you say? Well, the start was Howard’s 500th of his career. His first NHL start came WAY back on November 28th of 2005, a 5-2 victory over the LA Kings.
-No Home Like The Dome: Calgary has now won 5 straight at home over the Red Wings and they’ve done it in convincing fashion. In those five straight wins they have scored 23 goals.
-Calgary Wins The Trade: Milan Lucic collected his first point as a Flame on Sam Bennett’s first goal of the season. Calgary won the Lucic/Neal trade. Case closed.

"We were in around the net where you’ve got to go to score goals, we were in the blue paint, in where you pay a price to score, so that was very encouraging."— Calgary Flames (@NHLFlames) October 18, 2019
