With Minnesota’s loss to the New York Islanders, the Calgary Flames officially clinched a spot in the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs!

Calgary becomes only the 2nd team in the NHL and 1st in the Western Conference to clinch a playoff spot. It’ll be their third playoff appearance in five years and their first since 2016-17.

It’s safe to say this season has exceeded even the wildest expectations from before the season and now we’re hungry for more!

Up next for Clinching:

Calgary’s magic number to clinch home ice advantage in the first round is 5.5

The magic number to clinch the Pacific Division and Western Conference is 10.0

Go Flames Go!
