Calgary Flames 2 - Anaheim Ducks 1
-Milestone City: Three Flames players reached career milestones last night. Mikael Backlund played in his 600th career NHL game and Sam Bennett and Noah Hanifin each reached career game #300.
-We’ve Got A First!: Andrew Mangiapane has been playing very well as of late and last night he scored his third goal of the season. Why is this significant? It’s Mangiapane’s first GWG in the NHL.
-Smittty On A Tear: Mike Smith won his 4th straight game and got the Flames a point in the 5th straight game he has started. This is Smith’s second longest winning streak of the season, with a seven game run back in November/December.
