The Morning After
Calgary Flames 5 - Boston Bruins 2
-20 Again: Sean Monahan has had a tough season so far, but his play lately is trending upwards. The Flames centre scored twice against the Bruins giving him 21 goals on the season. That makes it 7 straight seasons (every year he’s been in the league) where he’s scored 20 or more goals.
-Killing It!: The Bruins only had one PP last night and the Flames were able to kill that off. That makes it 13 straight penalties the Flames have killed over a seven game stretch.
-Props: Brad Marchand scored his 25th goal of the season last night, a short handed marker in the second period. That shortie was the 27th of his career, making him the Bruins all time leader in SHG.
