Flames Game Recaps

Flames Visual Recap 40: Calgary keeps pace with solid win over Islanders

After a disappointing loss to the Winnipeg Jets earlier in the week, the Calgary Flames played host to the New York Islanders on Friday night. Semyon Varlamov, who hadn’t started in three weeks, tended the pipes for the Islanders. Mathew Barzal was also a late scratch, so the Flames had no reason not to win this game.

The Flames scored on their first shot of the game, a top shelf snipe from Milan Lucic assisted by Jonathan Huberdeau. They scored three times on their first five shots, the other two coming from Blake Coleman and Nikita Zadorov, to open up a 3–0 lead in the first period. The Isles got one back from Zach Parise, but that was as close as they would get. Nazem Kadri added another late in the third period to bring the final score to 4–1.

It was fairly low event hockey for the majority of the game. Not a lot was happening outside the first period flurry, but the Flames took care of business. It may have been a snoozefest, but as they say, a win is a win.
