The Morning After
Calgary Flames 7 - St. Louis Blues 1
-600 Games: Erik Gudbranson has been a solid defender for the Flames all season and it was great to see him reach a career milestone while wearing the Flaming C. Gudbranson suited up for his 600th NHL game last night and collected an assist to go with the milestone.
-Ho Hum: It’s just another banana’s night for Johnny Gaudreau and Matthew Tkachuk. The two combined for 9 points with Tkachuk getting five (!) assists and Gaudreau getting a goal and three helpers. That was the first time Matthew Tkachuk dished out five helpers in his career.
-Seven Is Rare: The Flames hung a rare 7 goals on the Blues last night, something they don’t accomplish very often. The last time the Flames put that many in the net was on March 4th of 2021 in a 7-3 defeat of the Ottawa Senators. That night was coincidentally the same night the Flames fired Geoff Ward and hired Darryl Sutter.
