The Morning After
-That Was Fast: The Flames scored the first three goals on the evening, but it was the first two that were noteworthy. Elias Lindholm beat Mike Smith a mere 26 seconds into the game and 25 seconds later Andrew Mangiapane put the Flames up 2-0. The two goals in 51 seconds are the two fastest tallies in Stanley Cup Playoff history.
Three’fer: Matthew Tkachuk struggled against Dallas and he took his frustrations out on the Oilers Wednesday night. Tkachuk recorded a hat trick making him the first Flames player to accomplish that feat in the playoffs since Theo Fleury did it back in 1995.
-Goals A’Plenty: The Flames and Oilers put 15 pucks in the net last night making it the highest scoring playoff game since 1993.

"We were told that it was a boring series last time so I told the players yesterday we've got to score 7 to 10 goals today, knowing full well that they'd probably score 5 to 8, and then we could win. So that's what we did."— y - Calgary Flames (@NHLFlames) May 19, 2022
