Mavericks: Middle Of The Road

It’s the start of a new year for the Flames’ ECHL affiliate in Kansas City! After missing the Kelly Cup playoffs in last year’s crazy shortened and re-aligned season, they’re now back at it to try again. The Mavs kicked off the early stretch of the year by going .500 through their opening six match ups, and they hadn’t managed to get ahead of the curve since.

HOTN: Mikael Backlund Provides The Only Spark For The Flames

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports That’s now back to back games for Backlund who hadn’t scored in 18 games prior. Highlight Of The Night Calgary Flames 1 - St. Louis Blues 5 Well, the Blue certainly got their pound of flash tonight, getting back at the Flames in St. Louis.

Calgary would only muster one marker on the evening and it came from Mikael Backlund, who with a little more luck, might have had a hat trick. Backlund’s second goal in as many games tied the game at 1-1, but...
