There were some shenanigans in the third period that led to a game misconduct and an injury. Fan Poll Friday Photo by Brett Holmes/Icon Sportswire via The Flames took care of the Red Wings last night 5-1, but it wasn’t without some drama. In the third period Elias Lindholm and Darren Helm (both had goals) got tangled up after a face-off and then it got ugly. Lindholm APPEARED (the camera angle was inconclusive) to get Helm up high with an elbow. Helm, naturally took offence to this and wildly chopped at the back of Lindholm’s leg. The Flames centre would leave...

Who should be the Flames 2nd Line RW?

Photo by Brett Holmes/Icon Sportswire via Calgary has done some experimenting early in 2019-20 When the Flames brought in James Neal and Elias Lindholm in the summer of 2018, it looked like they would slot in very well alongside the previous duos of Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan, and Matthew Tkachuk and Mikael Backlund. One of those happened with Lindholm sliding in on the top line, however Neal never did work out, and now Calgary is still somewhat searching for one more consistent top six forward on the second line. For most of the last couple years that other winger has been...
