The surprise expansion club was able to hit the back of the net when it mattered, played physical and got good goaltending in a clash that, for a while, was actually more closely contested than it appeared.
But for the Flames — who unravelled in the third period and did not get off to the start they wanted — they are slipping further and further down the Pacific Division standings.“I don’t watch the standings,” snapped Flames head coach Glen Gulutzan, promptly ending his post-game interview.
It’s the most points collected by an NHL expansion team since the Florida Panthers in 1993-’94.Calgary lost its’ third straight.“We had a conversation after the first and we’ve got a few guys that were cruising,” Gulutzan said.

But the visitors seemed jarred by an off-side call that overturned a potential game-tying marker.
Sean Monahan was ruled to have his skate in the air just as Dougie Hamilton was carrying the puck over the blueline.
However, the daughter did not exist and Janke had actually been speaking with a Victoria Police Department undercover operator.“The Victoria Police Department’s ICE (Internet Child Exploitation) unit had been conducting a proactive, online investigation involving a website that is known to host online chat rooms geared towards child sex.
Once the Victoria Police Department ICE investigators determined the suspect was based in Alberta, the information was referred to ALERT’s ICE Unit.”More details are expected to be released at a press conference in Edmonton Friday afternoon.
