The Morning After Toronto: Stop Scoring For The Other Team

Photo by Brett Holmes/Icon Sportswire via The Flames are putting the puck in the wrong net a lot lately. The Morning After Calgary Flames 2 - Toronto Maple Leafs 3 Recap - NHL Standings Tidbits -Enough Is Enough: In four starts so far Jacob Markstrom has surrendered seven goals, but a lot of it isn’t his fault. In an unthinkable, weird scenario the last five goals scored by the Flames opposition have all gone off of Flames players and past Markstrom. What gives? -Gimmie A Break: Another long break, another loss coming out of it. The Flames continued their post break...

Marky’s mark: Flames goalie has made immediate impression at Saddledome

Elias Lindholm had an opportunity to compliment his buddy. And he did. In the same breath, Lindholm also complimented his boss. Smart man. Moments after the Calgary Flames completed a two-game sweep of the Vancouver Canucks, Lindholm was asked about his puck-stopping pal Jacob Markstrom, who has already made a heck of an impression at the Saddledome since arriving on a six-year, US$36-million deal as a...

Jacob Markstrom pitched his first perfect game with the Calgary Flames

When the Calgary Flames signed goaltender Jacob Markstrom to a six-year, $36 million deal, it was for one reason and one reason alone: To procure a franchise netminder once and for all. Now granted, there were some questions as to whether or not Markstrom fit that bill heading into free agency. He only appeared in […] Jacob Markstrom pitched his first perfect game with the Calgary Flames - Puck Prose - Puck Prose - NHL

Snapshots: Markstrom, Tanev lead Flames to shutout victory over Canucks

Jacob Markstrom blanked his old buddies. He had a ton of help from a friend who followed him here. Facing his former teammates for the first time after crossing enemy lines in the off-season as a top-of-the-ticker free-agent signing, Markstrom backstopped the Calgary Flames to Saturday’s 3-0 shutout victory over the Vancouver Canucks during the home-opener at an empty Saddledome. ...

Flames' Tanev expects to 'have every emotion going' in game against former Canucks teammates

If Jacob Markstrom’s first game against the Vancouver Canucks is the storyline getting the most buzz, that seems to suit Chris Tanev just fine. Both guys moved to the Calgary Flames this off-season, but Tanev is a player who always seems to float just a little under the radar. After 10 years in Vancouver, Saturday’s matchup with the Canucks (8 p.m., CBC, Sportsnet) is a big deal for the 31-year-old, too. Reunions always are. ...

Flames goalie Markstrom ready to face former Canucks teammates

These are familiar foes. Goaltender Jacob Markstrom, the marquee off-season addition for the Calgary Flames, has already been peppered with thousands of shots from Saturday’s opposing triggermen … just never on live television. Markstrom won a pile of games on behalf of the Vancouver Canucks. On Saturday, during the Flames’ home-opener at an empty Saddledome, he’ll try to win his first against them. ...

Calgary Flames: Jacob Markstrom shines in his Calgary debut

Jacob Markstrom shined in his Calgary Flames debut. All eyes were on Jacob Markstrom as he took over the crease for the Calgary Flames on opening night. Louis Domingue would be the backup due to David Rittich needling to take care of a family issue. Unfortunately, Markstrom’s performance wasn’t enough to take home two points. Flames […] Calgary Flames: Jacob Markstrom shines in his Calgary debut - Puck Prose - Puck Prose - NHL

Highlight Of The Night: Jacob Markstrom Robs Mark Scheifele

Photo by Jonathan Kozub/NHLI via It was spectacular, even if his flub behind the net created the mess that led to the save. Highlight Of The Night The Flames didn’t secure an opening night win (shocker), but Jacob Markstrom provided the HOTN from this contest. It probably won’t go down as one of his best starts ever, but it’s ok to temper expectations as he’s on a new team with a new defence core in front of him. He played fairly well for most of the contest, surrendering four goals on 34 total shots. And before you all have a nuclear meltdown, last year’s...

Goalie Markstrom snags point for Flames despite season-opening loss

The Calgary Flames’ prized off-season signing was starting to settle in, having made a series of key saves during the third period of Thursday’s season-opener. On this one, he was in scramble-mode. Caught wandering as he tried to play the puck, Jacob Markstrom hustled back to his crease and managed to snag Mark Scheifele’s shot from the slot, a highlight-reel glove save that at least preserved a point...

SNAPSHOTS: Close pals and current roommates Lindholm and Markstrom will be key pieces for Flames

Through four days of on-ice work at the Saddledome, one has been stopping pucks in the morning practices and the other picking corners during the afternoon sessions. They were on opposite sides for Thursday’s intrasquad scrimmage, too. Probably a good idea to give them a bit of separation. Jacob Markstrom and Elias Lindholm are tight, but the Calgary Flames teammates — both hailing from Gavle, Sweden —...
