Game Notes

Karma?: After a night filled with errors, turnovers, and chasing Flames players on breakaways, Mattias Ekholm finished off a superb night by tripping Mikael Backlund and running a pick on Matthew Tkachuk to set up the winning goal, none of which was called.

Ollie loves Nashville: With just 6 career goals to his name now, Kylington scored his second against the Predators, with the first being his first career goal. He extends his point streak to 4 games, over which he has posted a goal and 4 assists.

Markstrom is human: Two straight shutouts came to an end relatively early for Jacob Markstrom with a deflected shot from Luke Kunin sneaking under his arm midway through the first.

All Swedish, no Finnish: With defenceman Juuso Valimaki out of the lineup for the second straight game, the Flames had definitively no finish tonight. A first period in which they had 20 shots, half a dozen breakaways, and 13 scoring chances in total somehow resulted in a 2-1 deficit. Their only goal was a fluky bounce that barely caught the inside of the post.
