The Morning After
Calgary Flames 6 - Columbus Blue Jackets 0
-Let’s Get Some Shots: The Flames fired 62 SOG in their 6-0 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets. That 62 shot effort is a franchise record.
-A First & Some Firsts In A While: Erik Gudbranson scored his first goal as a member of the Flames last night and that marker was his first in 60 games. And from the “been a while” files, Mikael Backlund scored his 5th of the season last night, which is his first in 18 games.
-The Bread Rises: Andrew Mangiapane did what he does best last night: score on the road. His career best 19th of the season was his 18th on the road, putting him in the lead for road tallies, one goal ahead of Leon Draisaitl.
-Shut ‘Em Out: Jacob Markstrom didn’t have a “heavy” workload on the night, but he stopped all 23 shots Columbus sent his way earning his league leading 6th shutout of the season.
-Streaking: Johnny Gaudreau and Matthew Tkachuk continued their tear as well, with each collecting at least a point in six straight. Tkachuk scored twice giving him his 4th 20 goal season in the NHL.
