Flames’ Vladar carving out full-time NHL role after career-altering injury

The man they will eventually refer to as the greatest goal scorer of all time had just hit Daniel Vladar in the middle of his chest with a shot. Holding on for a whistle, the 24-year-old Flames netminder was approached by Alex Ovechkin whose words prompted both to break into large grins. Laughter ensued. In a tense, 3-3 game that had just minutes remaining in his first start as a Calgary Flame, the obvious question afterward was, ‘what on Earth were you two giggling about?’ “I think he was just trying to get in my head,” smiled the soft-spoken, ultra-respectful Vladar following Saturday’s 4-3 overtime win in Washington. “He kept telling me the whole game, ‘I’m shooting glove, I’m shooting glove,’ and he was shooting blocker. I was laughing — it was kind of funny.” What a fantastic anecdote and memory for the man with just six NHL starts to his credit.

Seattle brings the noise as Kraken make memorable home debut vs. Canucks

SEATTLE — Kraken captain Mark Giordano appeared on a pair of huge triangular video boards hanging over NHL ice that’s made out of collected rain water, and said, with a smile, “Hey Seattle, it’s Gio. Welcome to opening night.” Jordan Eberle and Jaden Schwartz and Philipp Grubauer said something, too, and it might’ve been good, but that’s anyone’s guess because you couldn’t hear a single word at that point. Captain Gio had spoken and so Kraken fans were going bananas, and for about the 100th time on Saturday night, before the puck even dropped on an historic inaugural home game for the NHL’s 32nd franchise. Yes, the Kraken have officially been “released,” as they said over and over in pre-game hype videos and speeches, in front of a raucous crowd of 17,151, who sat in a brand spanking new Climate Pledge Arena that touts itself as “the world’s most sustainable.” It really is wildly impressive, featuring electric Zambonis tending that rain-t

Sometimes watching a game you figure out the lead, but things change and you’re glad said lead never saw the light of day. After blowing a 3-0 lead to the Washington Capitals this afternoon in DC the game had that “sure the Flames blew a lead, but at least they got a point” expectation with […]

Gaudreau, Lindholm share milestone spotlight in Flames’ overtime win

When he’s done hitting milestones as one of the game’s great playmakers, Johnny Gaudreau may have a future as a pretty entertaining play-by-play man. Asked what stood out about a shorthanded beauty Elias Lindholm scored as part of a heroic Saturday afternoon in Washington, Gaudreau beamed at the opportunity. “He won the draw, we got the puck out and he beat the defenceman up the ice,” started Gaudreau of a 200-foot play that was preceded by a blocked shot on Alex Ovechkin. “He sent the defenceman back to the gym, brought it to the net, undressed the goalie and then went bar down. It’s hard not to kind of remember a goal like that. It was a pretty nice goal.” As goo

WASHINGTON — Elias Lindholm completed his second career hat trick with a one-timer 2:46 into overtime, and the Calgary Flames beat the Washington Capitals 4-3 on Saturday. Lindholm’s fourth, fifth and sixth goals of the season helped the Flames to a second consecutive victory, this one coming after blowing an early 3-0 lead. Washington had won two in a row. Andrew Mangiapane added his third on the power play to open the scoring for the Flames, who gave all of their first-period advantage back by the end of the second. Calgary’s Dan Vladar made 22 saves and Johnny Gaudreau had two assists, including the final feed to Lindholm for an effort that
