Highlight Of The Night Let’s face it, there wasn’t much that went right for the Flames yesterday in their 3-2, Game 2 loss to the Winnipeg Jets. One thing that was fairly solid was Cam Talbot.....again. The surprise Flames starter put in solid work on the day, stopping 23 of the 26 shots he faced, including some quality, high danger chances while the Flames were killing a Jets 5 on 3 PP.

Undisciplined Flames follow familiar script in Game 2 loss

EDMONTON – The first was a completely unnecessary crosscheck off the draw. Heck, the puck hadn’t even been dropped when Sam Bennett applied lumber to Jansen Harkins so forcefully the referee couldn’t ignore it.

This game definitely falls under the infuriating category for a multitude of reasons. The Jets out arguably their two biggest stars and the Flames just couldn’t muster enough to do much of anything. Flames came out slow (surprise!) but as the game went on completely grabbed control. They led in CF% (51.52), SCF% (53.13), and xGF% (53.77). The pushback in the third was especially positive, but d

The Flames just didn’t have their game fine tuned today. They were in it … game tied in shots and goals through two periods, but you just never got that sense they were dialled in enough to bring the game home. In the third Nik Ehlers gave the Flames the chance they needed to put […]
