The Morning After
Calgary Flames 5 - NY Rangers 1
-499 & Counting: Mikael Backlund had a two point night thanks to a gorgeous goal and an assist on Blake Coleman’s tally. Those two points have him on the verge of reaching the 500 point barrier with being only one away at 499.
-We’ve Got A First: Tyler Pitlick picked up his first point as a member of the Calgary Flames last night. He had the primary assist on Blake Coleman’s goal in the third period that put the Flames up 3-1.
-Out Foxed: It wasn’t the best of nights for the Rangers defensive phenom and former Flames prospect Adam Fox. He was pointless, didn’t have a SOG, was a -1 and was run over twice by Milan Lucic. Meanwhile, the guys he was in the trade deal with in Noah Hanifin and Elias Lindholm each had an assist in the Flames 5-1 victory.
