The Morning After
-PP Needs Help: The officials were all about sending people to the penalty box last night and they REALLY liked sending Ottawa there. Eight times the Flames were handed a man advantage on the night and they were only able to score one time. 1-8 is no way to perform on a PP and it’s how it’s been lately. In Calgary’s last three losses they’ve gone 3-15. That’s bad.
-Back To Back: Noah Hanifin is on FIRE! All season long Hanifin has been one of the Flames best defenders, but had little offence to show for it. He scored the game tying goal midway through the third period giving him goals in back to back games. It’s the first time he’s accomplished that feat since October 8 & 10 of 2019.
-Brick Wall: We’ve already established that Juuso Valimaki made the save of the game, but he was much more than that last night. Valimaki blocked a total of five shots, which was the most by any player in the game. He now has 31 on the season, good for 4th on the Flames.

"I thought we did a real good job in the third period, there was a lot of good showings from a lot of different players but at this time of the year, you can't just be talking about one good period."— Calgary Flames (@NHLFlames) March 8, 2021
