The Morning After
-Where You Been?: It’s been a rough start to 2019-20 for Michael Frolik, but he’s been turning it up as of late. The Flames forward scored one goal in his first 29 games of the season. Since then he has scored in three straight games.
-15 And Counting: On the other side of the ledger it’s been a struggle for Mikael Backlund. The veteran hasn’t found the back of the net in 15 straight games and it’s not for the lack of trying. He’s had 27 SOG with many of those being quality chances.
-Loves The Flames: Mitchell Marner scored last night giving him points in 6 of the 8 games he’s played against the Flames.

"All the guys on that PK did an amazing job. Blocked shots, fighting for the seams to block the lanes - small things can make a big difference."— Calgary Flames (@NHLFlames) December 13, 2019
