That was weird.
The Flames certainly did not bring their best effort to the game last night, yet somehow managed to walk away with two points against perennial President’s Trophy favorites the Vancouver Canucks. Danny Taylor, the Flames’ 4th-string goalie, looked pretty shaky in net but got his first NHL win with 29 saves on 31 shots. Luckily, Vancouver backup Roberto Luongo looked even more shaky which afforded Calgary to once again get back to 500.
The story of the night was Brian McGrattan’s return to the Flames. After beating down a Canuck you’ve never heard of, he saluted the fans – and got a 10-minute misconduct for it! Apparently Jagr has got a trademark on the move and Brian was penalized for it.
