Flames Game Recaps

Flames Visual Recap 11: Calgary blows another third period lead, fall in overtime to Islanders

The Calgary Flames rewrote history in their first game of their first road trip of the season. Without Chris Tanev, Oliver Kylington, and newly injured Michael Stone, the Flames called up Nick DeSimone from the Wranglers who made his NHL debut.

Visiting the New York Islanders, the Flames downright dominated the game for approximately 50 minutes, holding a 3–1 lead. Unfortunately, they let the lead slip away in the third period. The Islanders scored two goals in under a minute to tie things at three, before scoring the dagger in overtime. The winning marker came on the power play, a questionable call in a game where only one other penalty was called. The Flames extended their point streak to two games, but their losing streak to five games, now sitting at 5–4–2 on the season.
