The Morning After
-Really Special Teams: The Flames made Vancouver pay for their mistakes last night and they took care of their own as well. The Flames PP finished at 50% last night, scoring all three of their goals with the man advantage. And when they took a penalty, they handled that business as well. The Flames PK unit went 4-4 last night, shutting down the Canucks when they needed to.
-Shut ‘Em Out: Jacob Markstrom showed everyone why Calgary gave him a hefty contract in the offseason last night. Markstrom stopped all 32 shots that came his way, earning his first shut out of the season and first with the Flames. His last one came on February 20th as a member of the Canucks, one of two from last season.
Moving Up: Sean Monahan’s first goal of the season came on the PP and it also moved him up in the Flames all time list. He now has 58 PPG over his career, good for 8th all time, passing Joel Otto with his marker last night.
