Highlight Of The Night

Calgary Flames 6 - Columbus Blue Jackets 0

When a team scores six times in a game and unleashes 62 SOG, you’d think something from that end of the rink would end up in this column, but not last night. Jacob Markstrom takes home that honour with a 23 save shutout, his league leading 6th on the season. And he ended up here with a spectacular save while the Flames were only up 1-0 in the first period.
