The Flames would tie it up a couple of minutes later on a very soft goal for Kris Versteeg, as Troy Brouwer provided a perfect screen in front of Roberto Luongo and Verst

CALGARY — Mikael Backlund scored twice in a 13-second span in the second period to break a 2-2 tie as the Calgary Flames won 5-2 over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night. Backlund gave Calgary it’s first lead on a power play at the 11:23 mark of the second. Matthew Tkachuk deflected Mark Giordano’s point shot high in the air and over Roberto Luongo. The puck came down at the far post where Backlund stuffed it in. Right after that, Tkachuk’s slick pass between his own legs from behind the net set up Backlund in front and his one-timer put the Flames ahead 4-2. Backlund also added had an assist for his fourth three-point game in the last 17 games. Giordano with a goal

Tuesday’s game was exactly what the Calgary Flames needed. After dropping four of their past six games, including Saturday’s 2-1 shootout loss to the Edmonton Oilers and Friday’s “terrible” (Glen Gulutzan’s words, not ours) 2-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils, the Flames were due and it came in the form of a 5-2 victory over the visiting Florida Panthers. It was a minimal skid, if you could call it that. But facing a three-game homestand at the Scotiabank Saddledome and trying to continue their mission of moving up in the National Hockey League standings, a solid win — with scoring from other players not named Matthew or Michael/Mikael — was an important step. With the win, the

They called him ‘Baby Jagr.’ For a kid from Kladno, Czech Republic, that’s the ultimate compliment, but Michael Frolik – once a much-hyped scoring sensation in Jaromir Jagr’s home city and now a two-way type for the Calgary Flames – wasn’t buying it. “We all looked up to him and obviously, when you are growing up, everybody wanted to be like him,” Frolik said. “But then the reality comes, it’s not that easy.” The reality is, there will probably never be a second coming of Jagr, the age-defying right-winger who recently climbed into second on the NHL’s all-time point-production charts. But as Frolik filled the net as a teen, some folks figured that he might be the ne

Just as the New York Islanders were looking like a team that was rising towards contender status, winning their first playoff round since 1993 and having a deep roster led by John Tavares, the outlook is beginning to teeter again. With a 17-17-8 record and last in the Eastern Conference, the Islanders decided to fire their head coach Jack Capuano on Tuesday. The 50-year-old Long Island native was in his seventh season with the team and leaves ranking second in franchise wins and games coached, behind only the legendary Al Arbour. While assistant Doug Weight is taking over interim head coaching duties, the team said it will begin looking for Capuano’s full-time replacement immediately.

An assessment of the total financial effect of last spring’s Fort McMurray wildfire is pegging the direct and indirect costs of the blaze at almost $10 billion. The $9.9-billion figure includes the expense of replacing buildings and infrastructure, as well as lost income, profits and royalties in the oilsands and forestry industries, said MacEwan University economist Rafat Alam. It also includes early estimates on indirect costs such as environmental damage, lost timber, and physical and mental-health treatment for residents and firefighters. The estimate will go even higher, Alam said Tuesday. “It’s not fully done yet. More data kept coming and I’m sure it will
