The Morning After
Calgary Flames 2 - Toronto Maple Leafs 1 (SO)
-0 For 7: Auston Matthews is a goal scoring machine, that is a proven fact. He’s scored against every NHL team....with the exception of the Flames. In 7 career games against Calgary Matthews doesn’t have a goal and only has one assist.
-Still Undefeated: The Flames have now won their 5th shootout of the season in five tries. Prior to this the Flames had lost an unthinkable nine straight.
-Two In A Row: Calgary won for the second straight time when visiting Scotiabank Arena. Prior to these two wins the Flames had lost six in a row when stopping by to see the Leafs.
