#Flames line of Mangiapane, Backlund, and Tkachuk dominant vs. Anaheim. Look at these 5v5 possession totals and on-ice high danger chances: Backlund: 84.9% (28-5), 10-0 HDCF Tkachuk: 83.9% (26-5), 10-0 HDCF Mangiapane: 76.5% (26-8), 10-1 HDCF Combined for six points, too.
#Flames score five in the third period to erase a 3-1 deficit and beat the Ducks 6-4 at the Saddledome. Snaps a five-game losing skid on home ice. Calgary 3-0-0 against Anaheim this season. One more game to go on March 25th.
Pair of goals for Andrew Mangiapane this afternoon. Just his second ever two-goal game in the NHL. All 12 of Mangiapane’s goals this season have come at even strength. Only Elias Lindholm (19) and Matthew Tkachuk (14) have more. #Flames
#Flames have recalled Glenn Gawdin from AHL Stockton. 42 points in 46 games, good chance he debuts today. Derek Ryan (illness) to IR, retroactive to February 13th. Eligible to return Friday vs. Boston. Sounds like he’s quite sick. Backlund also questionable today vs. Anaheim.
Derek Ryan and Mikael Backlund both question marks tomorrow afternoon vs. Anaheim (illness). Coach Ward says team might have to recall someone from AHL Stockton to address void on the PK if those two can’t play. No decision on a starting goaltender. #Flames
#Flames hammer the Ducks 6-0 at Honda Center to win both games there this season. First time Calgary has ever swept a season schedule on the road in Anaheim, dating back to 1993. They hadn’t even won consecutive games there since Jan. 17th and Oct. 27th of 1996.
Backlund and Jankowski each with two goals tonight. First multi-goal games of the season for both. Backlund’s point streak up to five games (4G, 4A). Jankowski has five goals in seven games after going 38 straight without one. #Flames
