In this episode, we discuss the week that was for the Calgary Flames including a four game winning streak starting in Toronto and wrapping up against the Blackhawks in Calgary. We also touch on a couple of stories around the NHL including the Ottawa Senators and their special teams coach as well as William Nylander.
We also talk about the divisional leaders around the NHL and then in overtime we talk about a Sean Monahan comparison that will shock you.
Hi listeners! We are back with another episode after a rollercoaster of a week for the Flames. Today we discuss the week that was for the Flames including a couple of rough and rougher games against the Habs and Pens, then a bounceback against the Capitals and the best 60 minute effort of the season against the Leafs.
In the other periods we discuss whether or not the NHL has become a “hugfest” as Tortarella exclaimed in an interview. We also talk about a few teams that have had unexpectedly strong starts to the season (ahem.. Montreal) and our views on how sustainable those starts are.
Finally, we have some fun with over/under guesses on goaltenders Goals Against Averages around the league. Wait til you hear about Philly.
In period 2, we discuss a couple of teams off to rough starts around the league and give thoughts on if they are actually bad or if this is just an early season rough patch. We discuss the Oilers, Kings, Panthers, and Red Wings.
