Just The Facts (Mostly Facts)

-The Flames can set a franchise record for wins in a row with their 11th tonight. They tied the Calgary record of 10 in a row and Atlanta record of 10 in a row with their 3-1 victory over the Jets.

-Elias Lindholm is the hottest goal scorer in the NHL. He has a goal in 8 straight and can set a franchise record if he scores in his 9th straight tonight.

-It’s been a while since the Flames played outside of Calgary, but they are 3-2-0 in their last 5 away from the Dome.

-Vancouver has not played well at Rogers Arena as their 11-10-3 record shows. They are 3-2-0 in their last five at home, but the two losses have been rough. In those two defeats to the Anaheim Ducks and New York Islanders the ‘Nucks have been outscored 13-7.

-A while back the Canucks were making a push in the Pacific Division by winning 10 of 12 from November 29 - January 1, but since the change of the calendar it’s been tough sledding with the team going 8-7-3 in their last 18 games.

-The Flames are 6-4-0 in their last 10 trips to see the Canucks.

-It’s going to look like the 80’s this evening in Vancouver with the Flames wearing their current road uniforms and the Canucks sporting the “black skate” jerseys from the 80’s.
