Just like when I said that you won’t see many wins like the Flames had against Chicago this season, you won’t see many wins like Calgary had against Carolina.
Calgary allowed 50 shots in the game against the Hawks, yet still won 2-1. Calgary scored 5 goals and allowed none against the Canes. Both scenarios are not going to happen very often.
Hartley changed the lines in hopes he’d get more goals. And goals he got. The Stajan line and the Monahan line bother scored two to lead the team to victory. Hiller only had to make 16 saves for the shutout, and other than the first 10 minutes of the game, the ice was heavily tipped in favour of Calgary.
The win was Calgary’s first at home this season.
Sean Monahan, Matt Stajan and Lance Bouma each scored his first goal of the season to lead the Flames to a 5-0 victory against the Hurricanes at Scotiabank Saddledome on Thursday. Jonas Hiller made 16 saves to record his first shutout of the season and first with Calgary.
