Calgary Flames 3 Nashville Predators 5: Predators Score Last in Back and Forth Game

Flames drop rematch with Predators Calgary Flames 3 Nashville Predators 5 Scoring Recap Despite playing only 14:51, Juuse Saros could arguably be the first star of the game. Predators starter Pekka Rinne left the game shortly after giving up the third goal of the game to Sam Bennett, after being run over by Kevin Fiala. On the ensuing faceoff, Saros robbed Elias Lindholm on the far side of the Predators’ net. That gave the visiting team a spark, and Zac Rinaldo scored the eventual game-winning goal over Mike Smith’s blocker minutes later, on a 2-on-1. Saros stopped 9 shots, none of...

Fan Poll Friday: Lindholm, Neal. Who You Got?

Fan Poll Friday: Lindholm, Neal. Who You Got?

Both have played well on the top line so far this season. Fan Poll Friday This isn’t a bad predicament to have: who should be on the top line? Should it be James Neal? Should it be Elias Lindholm? If you go by the stats and play so far this season you’d probably think Lindholm. He and that top line were really clicking and all 4 of his points have come with Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan on the ice. HOWEVER, it could be argued that Neal could provide some muscle on that top line and he scored against the Blues when skating with the Flames top duo. So, who belongs up top with Johnny...

By The Numbers: The New Guys and Hot Starts

New guys on the Hurricanes roster are dramatically exceeding expectations through the first four games. Sitting at 3-0-1, the Carolina Hurricanes are at the top of the NHL standings in what has been the best regular season start in franchise history. With the departure of longtime leading goal scorer Jeff Skinner and top six forward Elias Lindholm, the narrative surrounding this team coming into the season was a lack of proven offensive producers in the lineup. Through the first four games, the club has dispelled this dramatically, sitting at second in the NHL in both total goals scored...

Flames powered by stars, goalie in shutting out Preds

NASHVILLE — The Calgary Flames have bolstered their scoring depth, although the supporting-casters haven’t provided much offensive oomph just yet. If their top trio can keep producing at this torrid clip, the Flames can afford to be patient. Sean Monahan tallied twice, Elias Lindholm also tickled twine and Johnny Gaudreau collected a hat-trick of helpers […]
