The Morning After
Calgary Flames 6 - San Jose Sharks 2
-Point Machine: Milan Lucic had a goal and two assists last night, giving him his first three point effort of the season. The last time he had a three point night was on December 2nd of 2017 when he had a goal and two assists as a member of the Edmonton Oilers against....the Calgary Flames.
-Quite Some Time: Tobias Rieder has now scored in back to games for the first time in a while. The last time he accomplished that feat was in 2016 when he was a member of the Arizona Coyotes.
-Bout Time: It’s no secret this has been a rough season, goal-wise, for Mikael Backlund. The Flames centre scored his 7th goal of the season, snapping a 13 game goalless streak.
