Video- You Make The Goal Call - Edmonton/Calgary

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

Cam Talbot is a goalie. He should know what goaltender interference is, right?

“No effin’ idea.”

Connor McDavid is about as controversial as a cup of coffee, no? So how come he left Thursday’s game with an Abuse of Officials penalty next to his name?

“I did what I did. I hope they’re not too upset with me,” he said afterwards.

Yes, it was quite a tilt Thursday in Edmonton, with a disallowed goal in overtime, a 4-3 Oilers shootout win over the Calgary Flames, and a rare burst of personality from McDavid after his shootout game-winner.

After assisting on Ryan Strome’s overtime winner that was called back because one of the National Hockey League’s cheesy goalie interference calls, McDavid scored on David Rittich in the shootout. As he skated to the Oilers bench he made the same motion with his hand that the referee makes when a play is destined for review

You could read McDavid’s lips as he pointed at the arena roof. “Go upstairs!”


Below, watch the reversed goal call in OT....

Winning Streak Hits Seven For The Calgary Flames

from Kristen Odland of the Calgary Herald,

On New Year’s Eve, the Flames began a win streak that, after Sunday’s 4-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes, has extended to seven games and elevated them to second in the Pacific Division with a 25-16-4 record.

They have not lost in 2018.

And after a four-game road trip that ended on a high note as the Flames headed into their mandated NHL break, they are officially the hottest team in the 31-team loop the eighth-best team in the NHL.

“This is kind of where we started last year when we went on that run,” said Flames head coach Glen Gulutzan, referring to the team’s 10-game win streak that started of 2016-17before the 2017 NHL All-Star break. “You know what, these guys always had it in them. I always thought they could get on a little run here. Eight or nine games before this started, we started playing pretty good hockey but we weren’t getting the results … you’ve gotta be happy for the guys.”

The Calgary Flames Remain Hot In Road Win Over The Tampa Bay Lightning

from Kriste Odland at the Calgary Sun,

Call it a warm-up for the National Hockey League All-Star game.

Or, at the very least, the snapping of nearly a month-long goal-less drought.

Johnny Gaudreau did both on Thursday night as the Calgary Flames extended their win streak to five games with a 5-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning at Amalie Arena....

Mike Smith stopped 33 of 34 shots, Calgary’s powerplay notched a goal for the first time in 13 tries, the penalty kill went a perfect three-for-three and the Flames were able to hang onto a second period lead.

“Our meeting this morning wasn’t all love-y for winning four in a row,” said Flames head coach Glen Gulutzan, whose club improved to third in the Pacific Division with a 23-16-4 record. “We weren’t happy with our third period in Minnesota. We talked about how when you’re up on a team, you need to keep the intensity and put them out.

“We can’t afford to give up points, especially in our division. We addressed that today that we have to keep our level high. I thought our guys did a good job with that.”

Morning Line- Matthew Tkachuk

“I’m an 18-year-old kid playing with guys like Mark Giordano, Matt Stajan, Troy Brouwer, guys that are almost 15 years older. The thing I was worried about coming in is ‘How am I going to fit in with the team? I was pretty comfortable coming into a new locker room just from what I saw at a young age. I saw the way my dad treated people—the trainers, his teammates when he played. Talking with him a lot, he really stressed that to me.

“When I talk to him it’s the two things he always brings up: compete and be a good teammate. Treat everybody equal, whether it’s trainers, coaches, players, and that was one thing I really tried to emphasize when I came in last year.”

-Matthew Tkachuk of the Calgary Flames on After Hours.  More from Sonny Sachdeva of Sporsnet along with the video which you can also watch below.
