Highlight Of The Night

Calgary Flames 1 - Toronto Maple Leafs 2 (OT)

Let’s get the obvious out of the way: David Rittich deserved better. The Flames backup faced 39 shots, stopped 37 and had a 1-0 lead with 1:28 left on the clock. To add insult to injury, just prior to that the Flames could have iced the game 2-0, but Elias Lindholm missed an empty net and they rest is history. Rittich was on point the entire night and carried the Flames for the entire 61:06. Here’s one of his MANY highlights from the 2-1 OT loss to the Maple Leafs.
