The Morning After
-Mony-Less: It’s been a struggle for Sean Monahan after a pretty decent start. He’s now goalless in 12 straight games and only has 7 points in that stretch. He’s also been below 50% at the face off dot in eight out of his last 10 efforts.
-Overworked?: Jacob Markstrom started his 15th game this season on Wednesday night, which has him second in the league in games started by a goaltender. After facing 29 more shots in the loss he has also seen the most shots this season (437) and also made the most saves (401).
-Burned By Boeser: After keeping Brock Boeser off the score sheet in their first three games, Calgary has struggled mightily in recent games. He’s has 6 points in his last 3 games against the Flames, including a three point effort Wednesday night.
