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.”
