The Morning After
-Finally!: Oliver Kylington had himself quite a game last night after what wasn’t looking like too promising a start. Kylington was hit with a very high hit and had to leave the game for the first period. The Flames defenceman would return and collect the primary assist on Elias Lindholm’s goal after taking the puck from end to end and feeding the Flames centre. The point was the first of the season for Kylington.
-Third Time’s A Charm: The Flames 4-3 defeat of the Oilers was their third win in a row and third under new coach Darryl Sutter. Remarkable this is only the second time this season that the Flames have been able to string together three straight victories. The last time was from February 6-11.
-Heating Up: Noah Hanifin recorded his third goal of the season last night and has three goals in his last five games, which leads all Calgary defenceman over that time frame. The goal was also the GWG, the seventh of Hanifin’s career.
