The Morning After
The Flames took care of business last night, climbing to within six points of the 4th place Canadiens by defeating Montreal 4-2. Calgary opened up the scoring in the firs ton a Dillon Dube goal, but Montreal was able to retaliate quickly, putting the Flames in a 2-1 hole. That would be the last time they would trail in the contest. Calgary would score three unanswered goals to put the Habs away and collect two very important points on the night. Calgary and Montreal go at it again Saturday night at 7 PM MT from the Saddledome. Once again it’s another big game for Calgary as win really puts the pressure on the Canadiens.
-Money Man Sighting: Sean Monahan broke out of a funk in a huge way last night, scoring a goal and collecting two assists. The goal was only the third time he’s lit the lamp in his last 18 games.
-Streaking Johnny: Johnny Gaudreau had an assist last night giving him a point in three straight games and he now has a point in five of his last six skates. The assist was his 18th of the season at home in 22 games.
-Speaking Of Hot Streaks: Elias Lindholm collected an empty net tally to continue his dominance of Flames opponents. Lindholm now has points in 10 of his last 12 games.
