Highlight Of The Night The Flames fell behind the Maple Leafs early on the in the first period and needed an answer and fast. Just a little over four minutes after Jake Muzzin put the Leafs up 1-0, Sean Monahan would get the equalizer. After some solid chances in the Toronto end, Monahan would find himself on the door step of Jack Campbell’s goal and deposit a rebound of his own shot past the Toronto keeper to tie the game at 1-1. Monahan didn’t have much to work with, but a quick stick and a rocket shot were all he needed to put the puck in the net. Check out the tough angle goal in the highlight below!

Maple Leafs attempting to out-sprint competition with condensed schedule

Heavy hearts inside the Toronto Maple Leafs organization. Heavy legs in all four corners of the dressing room. It was a sombre Sunday with news of George Armstrong’s death and a quirky 2 p.m. game to be played under conditions that screamed “schedule loss.” The Leafs landed in Calgary some 20 hours before puck drop and hadn’t had a chance to come up for air since training camp began three weeks ago. The Flames hadn’t played in six days. “It was our seventh game in 12 days and travelling out here and then having to play a 2 o’clock game, it’s a tough ask. And then you’re playing against a rested team,” said Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe. “This one we felt would not be pretty.” The only beauty to be found in a 3-2 victory was the two points it added to their total in the North Divi

Markstrom’s steady play undone by bad bounces yet again as Leafs top Flames

CALGARY — The last time Jacob Markstrom was beaten by a clean shot was opening night in Winnipeg. No wonder he’s been the story in Calgary four games in. Both goals the Vancouver Canucks scored on him in their two-game Saddledome set bounced in off Flames defenders. He still won both, picking up a shutout in the first. Then came Sunday afternoon’s matchup against a Leafs team that repeatedly sent some of the league’s biggest names in alone, only to be thwarted by the big man. However, by game’s end, the Leafs celebrated three fortuitous bounces that found the net to hand Markstrom and the Flames their first regulation loss of the season, 3-2. Make no mistake, the Flames didn’t necessarily deserve a better fate, as they were the second-best team in a scrimmage both teams felt was sloppy. However, when a harmless redirect heading towards the corner careens in off your defenceman’s leg for the game-winner you shake your head and

Analytical Analysis - Game 5 - Nobody Likes Scoring on the Calgary Flames Quite Like the Calgary Flames

Photo by Derek Leung/Getty ImagesSeriously the majority of them played very well tonight, as for some guys... guess you gotta read. Some days you can do absolutely everything right and still get a bad result. That’s how game 4 went for the Calgary Flames on Sunday. Two more bounces off their own players end up in the back of their net, and an unfortunate random bounce after a bad 4th line shift resulted in a PP led to a missed 2 points. This is a loss that really doesn’t sting like the one against Winnipeg as the team stuck to their systems, never gave up, kept pushing and unfortunately just came away shorthanded.

Honestly that was a good hockey game. With one team travelling across the country and the other on a five day hiatus, the afternoon start had the makings of an ugly game for at least one if not both teams at Saddledome today. Instead it was a spirited affair with the Toronto Maple Leafs scoring […]
