Calgary's Big Line Sinks The Wings

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

There are plenty of great offensive lines in the NHL these days but the Calgary Flames can argue they have the best.

The Flames’ trio of Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan and Elias Lindholm dominated as Calgary rallied to defeat the stumbling Red Wings, 5-3, Wednesday at Little Caesars Arena.

The line combined for nine points — Gaudreau had four, with a goal and three assists — while each players had a goal, and the Flames (25-12-4) rolled to their third victory in four games.

“They’ve been doing it to every team in this league,” said forward Darren Helm, who returned to the lineup with a goal. “I don’t know too many teams that have an answer right now. They’re a top line for a reason and they find ways to score.”

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
