The Morning After

Calgary Flames 5 - Colorado Avalanche 3

NHL Standings - Recap


-700: Darryl Sutter joined some elite company last night, collecting his 700th career win. The victory ties him with Mike Babcock as the 10th most winningest coach in NHL history.

-Newcomers Impress: The Flames newest acquisitions were front and centre in Calgary’s 5-3 victory last night. MacKenzie Weegar (2), Jonathan Huberdeau and Nazem Kadri each collected a point in their first games as members of the Flames.

-Another Streak Is Dead: Coming into last night the Flames hadn’t won an opening night game since 2009 (12 straight losses), but it is no longer the case. You can fire that, along with the “can’t win in Anaheim” narratives right into the sun.
