Emotions running high
Jim Peplinski just started jabbing at Eric Fichaud's pads after the Montreal goalie made a save.

Rick Green, though, came over and playfully pushed him away and the two joked around, mimicking that they might drop the gloves in a battle. But of course cooler heads prevailed and the two smiled as they skated away.

While the mock shoving match was playful, there is no doubt that Calgary has turned up the intensity.

But that intensity went for naught when Kirk Muller scored against the run of play during a 2-on-1 to make the score 5-3.





Quote of the Day

It's a moment that I've thought about for a very long time. It definitely feels great to get it out of the way. I couldn't have dreamed a better situation. I'm so thankful for this.

— Flames forward Sam Bennett after scoring his first career NHL goal in a Game 3 win vs. the Canucks
