The Calgary Flames are sitting precariously in the Western Conference playoff race. Desperate for a bounce back after a listless effort against the Detroit Red Wings a few nights ago, the Flames faced the New York Rangers at home.
The Flames scored two goals in the first 46 seconds of the game, eight seconds apart to set a new NHL record. They dominated in the first, but the Rangers battled back and ultimately sent this game to overtime.
Following a penalty drawn by Dillon Dube, Mikael Backlund tipped home a Jonathan Huberdeau shot to ice the game. It was a massive victory in which Huberdeau and Markstrom had their best games of the season, and hopefully this is the turning point the Flames need.
